    I recently updated my Galaxy S3 to Android 4.3 about a week ago. For reasons unrelated, I am now trying to factory reset my phone but I find that there is no option to do so via settings anymore?
    I clearly remember in my older version of android there was a back up and reset button in the settings.

    I've looked all around settings and still can not find it, can anyone help?
    If it helps, my phones model number is GT-19300T

    Settings -> Accounts (if using the Tab view) -> Backup and reset?

    You can always boot into Recovery mode and perform a Factory Reset there as well. While you're in Recovery mode it's also a good idea to wipe the cache.

    You can also use the buttons to factory reset the S3.

    hold volume up button + power button + home button all at the same time, then release just the power button when phone vibrates and choose wipe data factory reset from list of options.
