What is Hard Reset?

To put it in simple words, a Hard Reset on a BLU phone or any other smartphone will restore your smartphone to default settings. Once the process is done, your phone gets faster and works efficiently. There are many other advantages and we have gone through them in the Pros & Cons section.

Soft Teset vs Hard Reset:

In the hard reset process, your phone will be completely empty like the new one and existing data will be lost. In soft reset, you will not have to set up your phone once again and data will stay intact. So that's the main difference.

Factory reset or Meta mode or development mode does mean the same.
