    How to perform factory reset of Android powered Samsung handset?

    I have bought an Android powered Samsung handset from my friend last week. All applications are not working fine and there are some errors. I heard like doing a factory reset will solve most of the issues. How can I do that?

    You should first open applications menu of your android phone. Then you need to go to the settings screen. Hit on the option labelled ‘privacy’. The ‘factory data reset’ option needs to be selected then. Finally you must hit on the option ‘reset everything’. After doing so, you have to set up the device as well as email once more. By doing a factory reset almost all minor issues of your phone will get solved.
