4 Ways to Factory Reset your Realme Smartphone

Considering selling your device or passing it on to someone else? Perhaps your phone isn’t working as it should, or you simply need a fresh start. Most issues can be fixed by a simple restart, but it’s not always effective. A factory reset may be necessary in more serious cases. You might want to consider factory resetting Android sometimes if it isn’t working quite as it should (at least from a software standpoint). This post will guide you on three ways using which you can reset any Realme smartphone.

What to do Before Factory Resetting Your Realme Phone?

While factory resetting your Realme smartphone isn’t a difficult task, what most users forget before doing it is taking a backup. So, start with taking a complete backup of your realme device. You could either use services like Google Drive or resort to backing up locally on your computer or an external SD card. Note that, once the phone has been reset, you will not be able to recover any lost data. Hence, backing up is necessary.

There are multiple methods you can use to factory reset any Realme smartphone, be it the Realme C2 or the Realme X7 Pro 5G. 

  1. Hard Reset using Recovery Mode
  2. Reset using Settings

  4. Reset using Google’s Find My Device
