Question about Cell Phones
Hard reset may refer to either simply powering down the phone or to a procedure to return it to its factory defaults.
To power a cell phone down, keep the power button depressed for about 15 seconds. The option to power down the phone should appear on the screen. Select it. To turn the phone back on, simply depress the power button and release it. The phone will "reboot." Do not bother it again until the familiar home screen appears.
That procedure seems to clear away temporary files without affecting bookmarks, etc.. If your phone is operating slowly, such a power down and reboot may help.
This is NOT the hard reset that will return you to factory defaults. The reset that will do that is achieved at least by two different methods listed below. And both are a destructive reset that returns your phone to "right out of the box" status. It will not show your Google email account until you set it back up on the phone.
The most obvious method is to make use of this through your settings menu.
Performing a factory reset via the settings menu
Performing a factory reset using hardware buttons
