    Who will do a complete factor reset for 12?

    And if yes, will you do the reset before allowing 12 to load, or when notified that the update is available, do the reset at that time with the understanding that when it boots back up it will automatically update to 12?

    I only ask since my facial unlock is getting slower and some have noted to do a reset of the facial recognition, some say do a factory reset and start from scratch.

    I will admit, I have never done a factory reset due to a update of the android system before. My 4XL was purchased March 8, 2020; therefor 18 months.

    Wow, how did I make two typos in the heading? Either need to go back to school or pay more attention to what I'm doing and less to what is going on around me.

    Can a moderator fix it to read "FACTORY RESET?" Most people; including myself, most likely will not know how to do a FACOTYR RESERT. (Sounds kind of kinky.)

    So, do you do the reset "after" the update, or before you do the update? I'm thinking heavily about about doing this for 12. Also a good time to dump some apps I have never used.

    You would want to do the reset after the update to clear things up and improve performance and eliminate possible bugs. I usually don't reset my phone unless I notice problems after an update.

    I will be doing it after the update.... always makes a new OS seem to run it's best.

    If you get a notification that a new software is available, and you then do the reset, wouldn't the new version (12) then load?

    Nope it will just reset your current OS, and you'll have to set the phone up again, check for the new 12 update, install it.... and if you have any issues you'll have to factory reset yet again. Better to install 12 first then factory reset

    Thanks for the info to all.

    I'll give it a try this time. In all my years of having android phones, I have never encountered any problems with just an update and no reset. This time, due to some minor problems appearing on my phone, I'll give it a try.

    Before resetting, I always go through my apps and make certain that everything that needs backing up is properly backed up. Google has become so much better in assisting in the restoration process. Also, you have to make a decision concerning the type of reinstall that you would like to do. If you have a minimal number of apps, perhaps you should consider a clean install. Personally, I have never had an issue just allowing for the Googlee backup. Good luck!
