Xiaomi, the Chinese giant, has launched a new smartphone, i.e., Redmi 2 Prime by upgrading the specs of the Redmi 2. It comes with 2GB RAM and 16 GB as its internal storage when compared to that of Redmi 2. If you are using the device and would like to upgrade to that of the latest device by Xiaomi, i.e., the Redmi Note Prime then always remember to factory reset your device. There are two ways to factory reset your device.
With soft reset you would be technically restarted the device, it may be your smartphone or tablet. This action would close any running applications as well as would clear any data stored in RAM, i.e. the cached memory. Although, do make a note that it won’t remove any data stored on the hard drive, as well as no settings or applications would be affected in terms of data loss. You can follow the below mentioned steps to soft reset your device.
Step 1: Open the settings and tap on Additional Setting that is on the bottom of the screen.
Step 2: In the new window, head over to the bottom of the page and tap on Backup & Reset.
Step 3: You will find all the backup and reset options in this new window. Now head over to the personal section and tap on Factory Data Reset.
Step 4: in the new window, click on the rest phone option at the bottom center of the screen.
Step 5: If you have an MI account then you need to enter the password and tap on the OK button.
The device will restart, and all the data on the device is deleted. Once the data is cleared, it will reboot as if you are booting the device for the first time.
Talking about the hard reset or hardware rest as many don’t know is a hardware operation and thus the name, hardware reset. What this operation does is that it would re-initialize the hardware components of the system. Doing so, it would end all the software operations performed on the system. It means any settings you have changed while the course of using the device would be wiped clean. The hard reset is followed by the booting of the system into the firmware. It would re-initialize the rest of the system and inlay restart the operating system.
The Data is wiped from your system, and Wipe Complete message is displayed on screen. Now click on Back button and reboot your device. You have successfully formatted your device.
Note: Always remember to create a backup of the data available on the device as the data cannot be retrieved back once you have done the format.
