    Default factory reset.

    I recently updated my android to 4.3.
    A lot of people say that if you get a big update, it is the best to do a factory reset for faster performance.
    Is that true?

    If that is the case, is there a way to do a factory reset and keep some data of some apps?
    Like example, i have an app that I spend my money on to buy ingame items and such. If i do a factory reset, all my ingame items will be gone and have to restart everything.
    is there a 100% safe backup and do a factory reset for me to keep my app data?

    You really don't need to do a factory reset unless you're noticing some negative effects from the update.

    If you flash a ROM, IOW change to a different operating system, it's not only smart to do a full reset, it's almost mandatory. A new system trying to use the data from an old system - where the data it's looking for may have absolutely nothing to do with the data it gets - can cause the system to crash.

    An update is normally written so that the data locations stay the same, or the old data is ignored.

    Google Restore or Super Backup are two good apps for such situations.
