How to hard reset Sony Xperia Z5 [Guide]

Sony Xperia Z5 [1]To hard reset Sony Xperia Z5 handsets is to wipe all data and reset the device to the way you first found it when you opened it out of the box. It’s a step that’s most commonly taken when you have a bug in the OS or you are choosing to sell the device. If you are selling the device, you probably are performing the hard reset for the sake of deleting all of the data on the device. Those who are experiencing problems with the software and want to reset probably want to store the data and just benefit mainly from the reset itself.

Unfortunately there is no way to apply a hard reset on the Sony Xperia Z5 smartphone without wiping the data; that’s all part of the process. It’s one of the reason why we always suggest you back up the Sony Xperia device data with incremental updates. Sometimes if you wait too long to backup the device and something goes wrong, there is no way you can take the backup at that stage. Hopefully it’s not too late for you to take a backup of the data now if you are resetting to fix a problem with the Sony Xperia Z5 smartphone.

Examples of data you may wish to back up include the text messages, pictures, videos, settings, SMS text messages and apps. Basically anything that you added to the device will be subtracted from the device. With a backup taken you can later restore that data again and have everything on your device just like it was prior to taking the backup.
