Here’s how you can reset Samsung phone to factory settings
Samsung Galaxy consumers hardly ever, if ever, do factory resets, however, there are some situations where a clean factory reset may be necessary, such as when you’re preparing to trade or sell your device.
Instead of using Recovery, you should use the Settings app to factory reset your smartphone. You can delete your Google and Samsung accounts as well as any other records of such usage on the phone.
What is Factory Reset
When user data is deleted from an electronic device and the device is reset to factory defaults, the process is known as a “factory reset”. It is a software restore that seeks to return the device’s software to its factory default settings. A factory reset can be used to clear all user data from a device or to fix specific software problems with the gadget.
How to factory reset Samsung Galaxy
There are simply a few steps involved in doing a clean factory reset on your Samsung Galaxy device. Although it is a simple procedure, you should be aware that you will lose any data in the phone’s memory.
The factory reset will not damage any data stored on the microSD card (if your Galaxy smartphone has expandable storage). In any case, you should back up all of your data before continuing.
To completely wipe your Galaxy phone or tablet’s memory:
- Go to “General management” in the Settings app after opening it.
- Choose “Factory data reset” under “Reset” after tapping the button.
- Examine all the information that will be deleted from your phone.
- When ready, complete the entire scroll and select “Reset” to confirm.
With One UI 4.1.1, Galaxy Z Fold 3 users can adjust main and cover screen’s refresh rate separately
Recently, Samsung started rolling out the Android 12L-based One UI 4.1.1 update for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 smartphone users. It’s an incremental feature drop update, which brings additional new features and optimizations for large-screen devices.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 smartphone has two displays – the cover screen (folded) and the main screen (unfolded). The Android 12L-based One UI 4.1.1 update brings a new feature for the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which provides you with even more control over the refresh rate of both screens.
As mentioned in the update changelog, the One UI 4.1.1 update enhances the functionality of the refresh rate control menu, enabling the adjustment of the refresh rate of both displays separately. The settings can be found at the same place where it was on the One UI 4.1, however, the same refresh rate won’t be applied on both panels automatically.
The motion smoothness options section now shows that the refresh rate settings will be applied on the cover screen, if your Galaxy Z Fold 3 is in folded condition. On the other hand, you will be needing to unfold it if you are needing to alter the refresh rate of the main screen.
Most of the time, we use the Galaxy Z Fold 3 from the cover screen and unfold it while watching movies or playing games. Using this feature, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 users can save the battery life of their foldable phone by picking different refresh rates for both screens separately.
Before upgrading to One UI 4.1.1, there were no separate refresh rate settings on the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
How to download and install Samsung One UI 5.0 Beta [Without PC]
Samsung is offering the One UI 5.0 Beta Program for flagship Galaxy devices in select countries, while users in unsupported regions can also get the Android 13 Beta through the manual download and install method.
For many users, the process of manual firmware flashing is a bit difficult as it leads to problems like phone brick in case of any single wrong step. Meanwhile, the Alliance Shield X app is here, which allows you to install the firmware manually, and you don’t need a PC for it.
Ahead of manual firmware installation, you will be needing the One UI 5.0 Beta firmware for your Samsung smartphone, which you can find out here. Do note that Samsung firmware contains some CSC limitations, therefore, we don’t recommend manual installation.
Now, download and install the Alliance Shield X app from Google Play Store. Once done, open the application, create an account using the Register button and allow the Knox permissions.
Next, you need to rename the downloaded One UI 5.0 Beta firmware file to Update.zip, followed by moving it to the root storage directory (/storage/emulated/0).
After that, open the App Manager function, which you should find inside the Alliance Shield app itself. Then, search for “Software Update” and select the option with the purple/white Icon.
Once done, head for the activities and search for “com.idm.fotaagent.enabler.ui.admin.main.AdminMainActivity” term, and open it using the prompted Option.
At last, you will get the Sideload button, which is the last step before beginning the manual firmware flashing on your Samsung device. If you want to go ahead with it, press the sideload button and select the Update-File.
Installation of firmware will start, and it will be completed in a few minutes.
