Nokia’s new X30 5G is its latest attempt to cater to folks who are after a smartphone with a premium design, and at the same time comes with a more wallet-friendly price tag. The Nokia X30 5G features some impressive hardware like a 90Hz AMOLED display, a 50-megapixel main camera, and runs on a rather clean version of Android, which is very similar to what you’d see on a Google smartphone, for example.
With that said, there are still times when Android tends to run into some issues – apps can sometimes freeze or crash, or there might be some features on your phone that occasionally would just flat-out stop working properly. It’s in these cases where you might want to do some very light “tinkering” with your phone, such as a reset.
Why Should you Reset your Phone?
Resetting your phone often allows it to function as if it were newly-unboxed again (at least in most cases), without any unnecessary third-party apps or files to slow down its performance. There are also times when it just needs a quick reboot to recover from app crashes, freezing, and such. In general, there are two different ways to reset an Android phone:
- Restart/Reboot: Also known as a “soft reset,” this method simply turns your phone off and on again, allowing it to recover from freezing, app crashes, unexpected bugs, and such.
- Reset: Also known as a “factory reset” or “hard reset,” this method erases everything on your phone, such as apps, settings, files, photos, and music. It’s generally advised that you back up your files to your PC, or online via cloud storage services.
How to Reset your Nokia X30
If you’ve encountered a problem on your Nokia X30 that prevents it from functioning normally, or would like to reset it to its factory settings, then you can try the following methods below:
- Press and hold your power button for a few seconds.
- A menu should pop up on your screen with options for “Emergency,” “Lockdown,” “Power Off,” and “Restart.”
- Select “Restart.”
- Your phone should then turn off, and automatically turn back on within the next few seconds.
Factory resetting removes all bits of personal user data from your phone, so it’s advised that you should back-up your files to a PC or via cloud storage.
- Open your “Settings” app.
- Head down to “System” > “Reset Options.”
- Tap on “Erase all Data (Factory Reset)”
- Tap on “Erase all Data.”
In the unfortunate event that your Nokia X30 is frozen and you are unable to access any settings menus, then you might need to force restart your phone.
- Hold down your power button for a few seconds until the screen turns off – it should then automatically turn back on afterwards.
