Why Reset Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime?
There are many reasons you may want to reset a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime. It could be because the Android device isn’t performing properly. It may be locking up or getting slowed down by applications that have been installed since you purchased the phone. The most common reason, however, is when the user forgets the PIN, password, or security pattern on the lock screen. By design, Android is very secure. There is no way to circumvent this security on the lock screen. So the best you can do is make the device usable again by doing a factory reset. The factory reset will wipe everything on the phone, but the Android Operating System won’t be affected, and anything synchronized with the cloud (contacts, emails, apps) will all be synchronized back to the device once you go through the setup and enter your Google account information. Just be sure to use the same google account that you were using previously.
