The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus can be completely wiped and restores to its original settings using the info in this post.
Every time a Samsung device ends up developing major software issues, or you have installed some malicious apps, then you will end up factory resetting the device in order to fix it.
If your Galaxy Note 10 Plus device is having problems and it doesn't work as it did when you bought, and you've tried everything in order to fix them, then the last thing left to do would be to factory reset the device's system partition. The Factory Reset shouldn't remove any data files from the internal storage of your phone, as only the system partition with all the apps and settings will be removed.
After you factory reset the device you will have to re-add your main Google account, as you will have to reconfigure the entire device and all the settings. Remember not to install any apps unknown sources unless you know exactly what those apps are doing and how they are interacting with your Galaxy Note 10 Plus.
If you don't want to Factory Reset your device, and you suspect that the problems your phone is experiencing are due to some faulty applications, then you can remove those using the Safe Mode for your device. Here's how to boot Safe Mode for Galaxy Note 10 Plus:
- open the Power options.
- now tap and hold the Power Off icon.
- now the icon has been changed into Safe Mode.
- tap the Safe Mode icon once and confirm the boot.
- wait for the Safe Mode boot to complete and then use it to remove any unwanted apps that cannot be removed in normal mode.
If the above Safe Mode instructions aren't helping you to fix your phone, then you should try to Hard Reset the device.
