Though Android manages and approves apps for the Google Play Store, very carefully, but still some of the apps may not be compatible with your Android device, causing your Android to be either slow or non-operational. Or on the other hand, excessive download and installation of the apps in your Android device may cause it to be too slow. But, in majority of the cases, when some Android versions are upgraded, the upgradation may not be compatible to the original and default operation system, causing the general constraint on OS. In all these cases, the user may feel need to reset the Android device.

Note: But, before factory reset, you must decide; whether you are ready to let whole the existing data (including contacts, messages, downloaded and installed apps, call records, images, videos etc.) be washed, i.e. erased and gone forever. In addition after factory reset, your device will be reverted to the original and default OS which was installed in your device, when manufactured. If OK, go ahead with factory reset.
