What is formatting?
Before we begin explaining how to format Android, we want to explain the concept of formatting so that you know what you are going to do and why.
Formatting a phone involves erasing all the information on the disc of your Android. This means that all your photos, videos, contacts saved or installed applications will be deleted. There are several reasons why it is important to format a smartphone: your Android becomes too slow, the memory of your device is saturated, your smartphone needs to be cleaned or you have decided to sell your Android. This list is not exhaustive.
Consequently, it is up to each person to carry out this operation or not. Finally, be aware that if you have a micro SD memory card in your Android, the data saved on it will not normally be deleted.

Before starting this operation, we strongly recommend that you save all your files, including photos, videos, and contacts to your computer.
In addition, we recommend that you do this when your smartphone is loaded more than 80% to avoid possible problems.
To get started, go to your Android settings and go to “Save and reset”. Then click on “Restore default settings”. The reset will be started and all you have to do is wait for the formatting to take place.
When your Android turns on again, you will find it as new, without any data on it and with factory settings.
