How to Hard Reset Nexus 6

Hard Reset Nexus 6 to factory settings

Today’s article is going to show you how to perform Hard Reset Nexus 6. If your Nexus 6 keeping crashing, restarting, freezing or slow to respond, one of the troubleshooting solutions below may fix the issue. If this happens, try resetting your device. Follow the instruction below, then check to see if your issue has been fixed after doing factory reset. If your device still can’t run normally, you have to install new firmware. Be careful, installing firmware may damage your device. If you forgotten phone pattern or password and you can’t get back in, you have to restore factory settings. Before you do factory reset I want to emphasize that all user data files will be lost with performing reset. Because of that I recommend you fully backup your Android phone just before doing resetting. If you using Gmail you can backup all phone contacts to your account, then restore back.

Soft reset can solve freezing device without deleting user data. Pressing and holding Power key your phone will immediately restart your device and allow you normal functioning.
