How To Factory Reset Galaxy S10 (Android 10 One UI 2.0)

There are two types of reset you can do on your Galaxy S10–Factory Reset and Master Reset. In this post, we will show the former so that you will be guided properly should you need to do it if you encounter issues with your phone. 

You will only be able to do this procedure if your phone is still working properly and that you can access Settings. All your personal files and data will be deleted if you do this. So, make sure to create a backup of the files you don’t want to lose before the reset, as you may find it difficult to recover them later.

When doing this procedure, you don’t need to remove your Google or Samsung accounts since the Factory Reset Protection will not be tripped. When ready, follow these instructions to reset Galaxy S10:

  1. Pull up the app drawer and tap Settings.

    You may also access Settings by swiping down from the top of the screen and tap the Settings icon.
