How to factory reset LG Stylo 5


I have used factory reset for my phone several times. For example, the first time I had to do it because I locked the screen and forgot my PIN. The second time, my phone’s memory was clogged and I kept getting notifications that I needed to clear my phone’s memory. However, even after I did the cleanup, that message still appeared, so the only way out was to factory reset my phone.

So a factory reset might be what you need either when your phone is lagging or when you need to completely delete all your data.

Just don’t forget that this is an extreme measure, which should be resorted to only if it is the only way out.

And keep in mind, factory reset will delete all data from your phone, but not the data stored on the SIM or SD card.

  2. Turn off the device
  3. Press and hold the Power key and the Volume Down key simultaneously
  4. When the LG logo appears on the screen, quickly release and then press the Power key once again while holding the Volume Down key
  5. When the Factory data reset menu is opened, use your Volume Down key to choose Yes
  6. Press the Power key to select it
  7. When ‘Erase all user data and restore default settings’ text appears, use the Volume Down key to choose Yes
  8. Press the Power key to select and reset the device
