One of the most effective ways to solve software problems on your Galaxy S10 5G is a hard reset. Also known as factory reset or master reset, the hard reset returns the software configuration to its original factory state. If an error or problem is the result of new software changes, it is likely that the full reset will help fix them. In most cases, the full recovery is the final step of problem solving, as it requires some important tasks you must do to avoid losing things. For example, you want to make sure that your personal data is securely backed up in advance to avoid losing it.
Most problems disappear after a factory reset, so if you have already completed all the troubleshooting steps of the software, go ahead and clean the phone.
