Soft Reset and Hard Reset

Soft Reset restart the device and the operating system. When programs
are not responding correctly, or new programs are installed, soft reset
is required. Unsaved data will be lost after performing Soft Reset, but
saved information will remain unchanged.
Restoring the default value (Hard Reset) will clear all information from
the phone memory. After system restarts, the device will restore the settings
to the factory defaults. All personal information such as contacts,
tasks, calendar appointments, as well as additional installed programs
and configurations will be lost. You can sync the data to a personal computer
prior to restoring to the default settings to avoid data loss. When
the phone malfunctions due to an error, you can try restoring the factory
default values.

When the system is unable to startup, you
can try using the hard reset function to restore it to the default settings.
We recommend that you contact our customer service representatives
before using this function in order to avoid damage to your phone and
internal data.

General advice: Before you buy a new cell phone or new tablet, please try the following procedure to repair your device in a software way. First charge your battery, backup your important data if possible and in most cases take out SIM and SD card before doing factory reset. It is impossible to recover your data after doing a hard reset, so online backup is always important. For all of your data, a backup should be done on an external device, hard drive, raid system or media. With or without insurance, if your cell phone lost, damaged or stolen at least your invaluable data is backed up in a safe place. If you are about to sell your phone and you want to wipe your personal data, or if your phone affected with virus you have to do a hard reset. In some cases, you can delete the forgotten password or lock pattern from your device as well. All information is for devices with stock based ROMs. If you are using rooted device, always back up your EFS folder first, containing your IMEI info, etc.! Please also note, that a hard reset operation will not unlock your mobile phone's SIM lock or network lock, but it will remove the unlock pattern, remove the user password or PIN password (NOT the SIM card's 4 digit PIN code). Also note that the firmware version will not be affected in any way, it will not be downgraded, it will remain the same you are using and if you have rooted your device, root privileges remain also unaffected.
