It is inevitable that as we use our Galaxy A20 over time, it will experience several glitches and errors. Some of them are just minor issues, while others are severe and may be hard to deal with. 

There are a lot of solutions that you can use to rectify these errors, but not all will be effective enough to handle the case. A simple reset might do the trick, but if you will face those stubborn glitches, that might not work as expected. 

A hard reset provides similar benefits as a factory reset, but instead of doing it on the phone’s settings, you will use hardware commands to initiate the procedure. This is helpful, especially if you are having some dilemma with the screen not responding due to certain circumstances.

Note: If your Galaxy A20 has been protected with your Google account, it is important to know the login credentials as you will be asked to enter that once the reset is done. If you don’t know the credentials, make sure to recover it first prior to initiating the steps. 

Steps: 

  1. Turn off your Galaxy A20. It is important that the phone is turned off to access the recovery options. 
  1. Press and hold the Volume up and Power buttons simultaneously, until the device vibrates and the Android Recovery screen appears then release all buttons. It may take up to 30 seconds before this option appears. 
  1. Select “Wipe Data/Factory Reset” on the options. Use the volume button to navigate and press the Power key to enter the selection. 
  1. Highlight “Yes” using the Volume button and press the Power key to confirm. Wait for the phone to complete the process. You should see it at the bottom message of the screen. 
  1. Once done, select “Reboot System Now” on the options. Your Galaxy A20 should attempt to boot up. Your phone will start up and ask for the login credentials, if necessary. Set it up and check if the issues are gone and have been resolved.
