It often happens, very often, to meet with the smartphone full of photos, videos, multimedia content, apps, messages, temporary files, etc. that slow down and clog the latest generation devices. This is why we want to talk about how to make the Hard Reset on Honor 10 because despite being released a few weeks, that of slowdowns and blockages of the operating system is a widespread phenomenon and dependent on many causes to which even the newest smartphones are subject.
Why make the Hard Reset on Honor 10
As we anticipated, there are several reasons to perform the Hard Reset on Honor 10. First of all for technical reasons, ie the problems of slowing down, battery life or difficulty in using the smartphone that after a while ‘time may occur. This happens either because, more or less inevitably, in the internal memory of the smartphone there remains almost everything that we do, even the apps that we uninstall, and with time all these useless files can affect the performance of the smartphone.
If you do not perform a regular memory cleaning, in the long run, you may encounter efficiency problems that can not be solved by simply cleaning or deleting some files (especially multimedia files that only seemingly weigh more on the phone’s memory), but it is it is preferable to intervene drastically with a format.
It can also happen that you buy a second-hand smartphone (or you want to sell or give away to third parties) and it is very useful to have a procedure that shows the device to factory settings, so as to see privacy protected and not having to use a smartphone that has already been used and has the memory that preserves traces of this use.
How hard reset works
We have seen how the Hard Reset on Honor 10 is necessary on several occasions, let’s see now how it works and, above all, how to do it. The operation of the hard reset is very simple and for the user who runs it only has to follow the procedure; the procedures in particular given that they are two different versions to obtain the same result.
In a synthetic way, the hard reset goes to intervene on the internal memory of the phone (so it does not touch the microSD possibly present) starting a procedure that completely and permanently deletes all settings, files, applications, text messages, etc. , which are present on the smartphone. After this procedure, the device returns as if it were the first time you turn it on so that you have to configure it again.
To perform the Hard Reset on Honor 10 there are, as we shall see, two procedures, one using the operating system menu, the other using the volume control key and the power button. These are two ways to achieve the same goal, so simply choose the one you prefer or the one you can do.
As mentioned, the hard reset is irreversible and once started must not be interrupted, so that it is recommended to start this procedure only with the battery charged or, for safety, with the smartphone connected to the power outlet. The formatting lasts a few minutes and then you can start using your smartphone easily as if it had just been purchased.
