LG Aristo MS210 Hard / Factory / Master Reset Tutorial

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.

Nowadays, User Manual is not a part of the sales package.  It’s a practical move. I think a hard copy would bite dust even if included. After all, Google is the friend for clearing all doubts no matter which product you buy.
But every fine detail about the product is not covered online and we need to refer User Guide to get a better understanding of the product.

With LG Aristo as well only a getting started guide in included in the sales package. It’s a very basic guide. It will help you in activating your LG Aristo and then using it for calling and texts.For a better know how related to the Android Nougat 7.0 OS you need to go through the instruction manual.
