    Answered By Prabal Manju | 1 years ago

    You can simply reset your Android to factory settings through "Backup and Reset" feature available in settings.

    However, this won't work if your phone has got hanged or you have forgotten the password.


    Here is a Quick reference to hard reset your phone:

    1. Power off your phone (If the phone is hanged, directly perform the next step)
    2. Press and hold Volume Down and Power button to enter recovery mode. (Old phone might use home button as well)
    3. After the Android logo, you'll be presented by a menu.
    4. Select "Wipe Data/Factory reset" from the menu.
    5. Press the Power button to confirm.
    6. Scroll to "Yes" and confirm with Power button.
    7. This will start the Reset Process.

  • How to hide photos and videos on Vivo S1 ?

    Answered By Neha Chattopadhyay | 1 years ago

    There might be some pictures or videos that you want to keep safe, so you have no worries while sharing your phone with others for a phone call or showing the selected pictures you took on your last trip.

    You can hide sensitive pictures and video and just relax. 
    There are many ways of doing that.

    The Technical Way:
    • One way to hide pictures from showing up in your gallery is to change their extension. 
    • You can do that by renaming them and putting something else than .jpg or .jpeg
    • These are the formats which your phone photo viewer understand as a picture.
    • Your pics are not hidden and still accessible through File manager, but they will surely not show up in the gallery.
    The Easiest way:
    The easiest way to hide and unhide your pictures in bulk is to use a vault. There are a lot of applications available for hiding your pictures and videos. You can choose one from them:


    My personal favorite is Vault as it allows you to hide SMS and take backups. You can also protect your applications with this.

    Answered By Naveen Mehta | 1 years ago

    Video calling was never this easier. VoLte is all IP Based and allows you to make video calls from native dialing applications. 


    Your phone must support 4G VoLte to use the feature. If your phone is not Volte enabled, you can use widely used: Jio4GVoice" application to get your work done. 

    To enable inbuilt 4G Video Calling
    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Go to SIM and Network.
    3. Select preferred sim and Enable the Volte and Video call option. 
    Other best way to make a video call is to use one of the popular video calling application.
