    Default Factory reset before or after or both an update?

    Hi
    Lots of people recommend doing factory reset of their phones AFTER updates and some others talk about factory reset BEFORE receiving an update and some others recommend both!.
    What exactly I should do before I jump from stock JellyBean to flashing stock Android 4.2.2 (once the KDZ file is available) in order to get 100% free troubles on the short and long run. I'm on LG G2 16 GB.

    An official update? I normally don't factory reset unless I run into issues. Either way just to be safe I would recommend backing up your files.

    Yes I'm talking about 100% official updates. I'm not interested at all about 3rd party custom ROMs

    Only time I reset is if I'm having issues. That will sometimes occur after a large system update. A reset wipes your phone clean so plan accordingly

    Always reset after an update but I don't use a ton of apps and only play words with friends so that is not a big deal for me. I've never had an issue doing it that way.

    I do both, but I only have about 10 downloaded apps.
