How to Backup and Restore Data in LG Stylo 5 Mobile

by Soft2share.com

If you own an LG phone, there are many LG backup options to choose from to backup and restore your data on your device. Since most people store both their personal as well as business content on their phones, it has become important to make backups of your digital devices.

If your LG Stylo 5 smartphone is running very slowly, hanging, you want to bypass the screen lock, or you have a full memory and want to erase everything, or you want to sell or give it away and want to ensure that nobody can access your files and passwords, you can do a factory reset to restore it to its original state like the first day.

In the following steps we explain how to format the LG Stylo 5 to erase all your information and make it totally clean as it came out of the store. Before doing a factory reset, we recommend deleting all the accounts on the device, specifically it is useful to unlink the Google account if you are going to sell, donate, or give away your Stylo 5. This will avoid problems for the new user, as some newer devices include a functionality called FRP (Factory Reset Protection) that requires the same Google account or PIN code with which the LG Stylo 5 was initially configured when factory resetting a device.

Keep in mind that a reset or return to the factory state on a mobile/cell phone deletes all its content, so make a backup of your data before doing it if you don’t want to lose everything. Backup is a file that combines some partitions of the information stored on LG Stylo 5. Backup or simply backup is a much more convenient method of backing up data as opposed to manual copying, since it does not require moving files one by one.

A full backup includes:

  • List of contacts
  • Message history
  • Account settings
  • Apps
  • Multimedia
  • Documents

Thus, your entire device can be placed in the backup. In the future, the user can restore the copy both to LG Stylo 5 and to any other smartphone.
