Smartphone operating systems might not always be as easy to navigate as desktop OSs—finding files nested on the Android operating system can sometimes be a complex task in comparison to using File Explorer on the Windows operating system—but one thing that does work in their favor is problem-solving.
Rarely do you ever have to spend time trying to figure out the solution to a problem with the LG K8 4G K350N smartphone because most things can be fixed by simply taking a hard reset instead, a bit like utilizing a get out of jail free card.
Despite many people saying otherwise, a hard reset and a factory reset on the LG K8 4G K350N device will yield the same outcomes: the phone will be restored to its default, factory state on both occasions. In other words, the same state that it was in when it left the factory responsible for manufacturing it. This means you shouldn’t expect to find any applications that you installed yourself still on the device. Any settings that you changed will be returned to how they were when you first opened the LG K8 4G K350N out of the box too. And, of course, unless you took a backup, all the data that you accumulated—pictures, documents, music, so forth—will no longer be available once the hard reset is complete.
There are numerous similarities between computers and smartphones: they are made up of many of the same components, and all have the same heart, veins, and brain, so to speak. When it comes to resetting the software though, there are some differences. A modern-day computer operating system will offer three ways to reset: rebooting the OS, force-closing all open applications and forcing a reboot, and then a third way, which will return the device to its factory state, if desired. The mobile operating system offers the factory reset option, and the only alternative being the soft reset, which is the same as a straightforward reboot of the operating system.
You shouldn’t worry about a hard reset causing any harm to your LG K8 4G K350N smartphone; provided that you’ve backed up any data that you didn’t want to lose, very little else can go wrong.
How to Hard Reset LG K8 4G K350N Smartphones
1. Turn off the LG K8 4G K350N smartphone by long-pressing the Power button and then selecting the option to switch off the device from the menu.
2. Boot the LG K8 4G K350N smartphone up again by holding the Volume Down and Power buttons simultaneously.
3. Keeping holding both buttons until you can see the LG logo. Release the Power button while keeping the Volume Down button still pushed in, and then press the Power button once again.
4. When executed correctly, you will now see the Factory data reset menu on the smartphone’s display.
5. Keep following the on-screen instructions by navigating with the Volume buttons and confirming the actions with the Power button.
6. Choose the option for rebooting the smartphone back into its regular operating system once the reset is complete.
That is all you need to apply a hard reset to the LG K8 4G K350N smartphone.
Applying a hard reset is probably one of the more commonly exchanged phrases for when people are referring to implementing a factory reset, but the same guide above is also good for a few other causes. The same steps would also work if you just wanted to wipe all of the data on your LG K8 4G K350N smartphone, for instance. Likewise, you could also use the same steps for bypassing the screen lock or just to restore the defaults on the LG K8 4G K350N device.
