How to Factory Reset Redmi Note 5 Pro – Simple Steps


The Redmi Note 5 Pro is definitely the best budget flagship smartphone of last year. However, having all that strong hardware doesn’t mean that, it can’t get a little slow or have a few software issues from time to time. Though, if the issues started after a firmware update there’s no surety that the reset would help. Because there can be a problem with the firmware. A Factory Reset solves these problems most of the time. Whereas, if you want to perform a Factory Reset anyway, then here’s how to Factory Reset your Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Things to do before you start The Factory Reset process on your Redmi Note 5 Pro

Before we jump into the process, you must do a few things so, you don’t lose any data or get locked out of your device.

  1. Back up all the data in your Internal Storage. A Factory Reset wipes out the Internal Storage.
  2. Remember the password of your Google account from which you’re logged into the phone. You may need it to unlock your device after the reset & prove your authenticity. If you forget the password & change it somewhere else you’ll need to wait 3 days before you can log-in with your new password.

That’s all for the pre-reset process. Also, you’ll be on your current firmware after the reset so, no worries about that.
