You can say that again, Tecno P5+ is an older Tecno Android smartphone, but i have gotten some needs to write on how to hard reset Tecno P5+ Plus including Tecno L2 and Y2. I have written earlier on how to hard reset Infinix Hot 3 X554 and Tecno Camon C8 should you need to read about them. In those posts, I mentioned reasons one would hard reset ones smartphone.
Today, I have added extra reasons why you hard reset Tecno P5+ or other Android smartphones
- When it starts to download and install apps by itself
- When it automatically turn on Wi-Fi and data continuously
- When it forces your apps to close repeatedly in annoying manner
- When your apps begin to disappear
- When your phone begin to hang, slow and force close apps
- When you need to free internal memory
Although, i have written guides on some of these issues above; When apps downloads by itself, phone begin to hang, free internal memory.
As you can see, the same procedure works with hard resetting Tecno Y2. If your Tecno Y2 begins to hide current call history, continuous music during incoming call and airtime status check, then you need to hard reset it.
