Factory reset

The LG smartphone can be reset to factory defaults through the settings, which erases all data from the internal memory, including

  • Google and other account credentials
  • System and app data
  • All settings (app and system)
  • Licenses
  • Files (music, pictures, documents, backups)
  • User data (calendar, contacts etc.)

In addition to the internal memory, the memory card can also be formatted at the same time, but this is an optional feature; if the LG unit has been reset to factory settings, the data cannot be recovered.
