Learn how to reset a Xiaomi phone; the process can be done by the settings or using the side buttons of the device

Xiaomi has released several phones over the years. Considering that we are talking about electronic products, these devices may present problems. Fortunately, many of them are often resolved by doing a factory reset. So I will show you how to reset a Xiaomi phone.

Make a backup

Before formatting your phone, I strongly recommend that you back up your data. This will ensure that photos, contacts, and personal information, for example, are not lost during resetting.

In general, there are two ways to make a backup on any Xiaomi phone. Here’s how to do this:

By Google account

  1. Open the “Settings” app;
  2. Go down the page and tap “Accounts and sync”;
  3. Tap “Google“;
  4. Choose the account you want to back up;
  5. Tap “More” and then “Sync now.”

By Xiaomi account

  1. Open the “Settings” app;
  2. Go down the page and tap “E Account”;
  3. Tap “Xiaomi Cloud”;
  4. Tap the “Sync” button to back up photos from the gallery, text messages, contacts, and more.

How to format a Xiaomi phone

Xiaomi’s mobile phones can be formatted by both system settings and side buttons. The first method is very simple and fast, while the second is a little more “laborious” and is usually used in cases where Android can not be accessed, usually when the owner forgets the unlock password.

Follow the instructions below to learn how to reset a Xiaomi phone:

In system settings

  1. Open the “Settings” app;
  2. Tap the “On your phone” option;
  3. Tap “Reset data”;
  4. At the bottom of the screen, tap “Delete all data”;
  5. Enter the unlock password;
  6. A window will warn you that all data will be deleted. Tap “Next” to confirm.

Using the side buttons

  1. Turn off your phone;
  2. Hold down the volume + and power button for a few seconds;
  3. A menu will be displayed on the device screen. Use the volume button – to go down to the “Wipe Data” option and press the power button to select;
  4. Choose the option “Yes, Delete All User Data” and confirm;
  5. When the process is over, select “Reset System Now” and press the power button.

From this moment on, the system will be formatted in full. It is worth remembering that this takes a few minutes, so do not try to restart the device.

Ready, now you already know how to reset a Xiaomi phone.
