The Samsung Galaxy S10 has been lauched to huge success with millions of units sold worldwide. Most users of Galaxy S10 don't know about the Auto Restore function that is coming packed with the new Android 9 Pie OS.
The Galaxy S10 comes with Android 9.0 Pie as its default OS. This new operating system brings tons of improvements and tweaks over the old Oreo firmware used on older Samsung devices, and now Samsung has added support for auto restoring the entire Galaxy S10 OS from a pre-determined restore point. This feature works the same as the one you can find on desktop computers, as you can set a restore point when the device's installed software was running correctly without issues and have it used when the device develops some major issues impeding it from running at full performance.
How to Enable and Use Galaxy S10 Auto System Restore feature:
- Open the Settings app on your Galaxy S10.
- Go to Accounts and Backup menu.
- Open the Backup and Restore menu.
- Enable the "Back up my data" option under the Google account menu.
- That's it, click Back up data and you can use this point as a system restore for when the device's firmware performance goes down.
In order to restore your saved data you simply need to open the "Restore data" option and select the files, apps, and other docs that you wish to restore for your Galaxy S10 device.
If your Galaxy S10 performance has started to get worse, then you should perform a backup for all installed apps first, and then disable the "Automatic Restore" option under the Backup and Restore menu. You can start removing each installed app one-by-one until you find the apps that are making your device's performance worse. This is one of the fixes that you can try before applying a complete factory reset of your device.
If you want to factory reset your Galaxy S10, then you can do it from the device's Recovery Mode menu. Note that you should create backups for all your important applications just like we said in the tutorial above.
The Factory Reset for the Galaxy S10 can be applied from the Recovery Mode menu. Here's how to do it:
- power off your device.
- press and hold Volume Up + Bixby + Power buttons at the same time.
- release the buttons when the screen shows an Android logo that has been tipped over.
- wait for the Recovery Mode menu to load; it shouldn't take more than one minute.
- select 'wipe data/ factory reset' option and confirm the process.
- reboot the phone in normal mode and you are done, the Galaxy S10 firmware has been restored to its original state.
