Before you buy a new cell phone or new tablet, please try the following procedure to repair your device. First charge your battery, backup your important data if possible and in most cases take out SIM and SD card before 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.!

Privacy
Personal data
Factory data reset Erases all of your personal data from internal phone storage, including information about your Google Account,
any other accounts, your system and application data and settings, and any downloaded applications. Resetting the phone does not
erase any system software updates you’ve downloaded or any files on your microSD card, such as music or photos. If you reset
the phone in this way, you’re prompted to reenter the same kind of information as when you first started Android.
