First of all we need to know that for reset our device android we can mainly follow two methods: reset via system settings ( soft reset ) or reset via buttons ( hard reset ).
These methods can be more effective than the other based on user needs and device problems: soft reset is suitable when the device is not fast and presents mainly performance problems, while hard reset is extremely useful when for example, the android system is infected with viruses and prevents the user from manually accessing the smartphone settings.
