The most common android problems are overheating, battery drain, lag, app crash, low internal storage, forgotten lock screen password, no sound etc. If you’re facing any of these issues with your LG Aristo, Hard reset / Factory reset should not be your first troubleshooting step.
Most of the time a Soft reset i.e rebooting the phone is enough. As Aristo has a removable battery, you should reboot after removing and reinstalling the battery. If this doesn’t work for you check if some app is causing trouble by using Safe Mode. If still, the problem persists then only go for a hard reset.
