When the Mi A2 first came out, it had mixed reactions from the users. It was a good phone of course but, the increased pricing made some existing Mi A1 users pretty unhappy. However, it actually didn’t do badly in the market & now there are a large number of users for this phone. So, if you have a Mi A2 & maybe it has gone slow or maybe you’re having some kind of weird software issue on your phone then, a Factory Reset might just be the solution. It’s actually pretty easy to perform a factory reset on your Mi A2. There are a total of two ways to do it & we have mentioned both of them here.
Things You Must Do Before The Factory Reset
- You’ll need to Back up all your data from your phone’s Internal Storage first. The reset process deletes the data inside the internal memory.
- Next, make sure to remember the password of your Google account from which that you’re logged into your device. You may get asked to log-in with your password in the same Google account after the Reset is done. Otherwise, you may not able to unlock your phone.
