How To Wipe Data & Factory Reset OnePlus 2

Has your OnePlus 2 started acting weird? Is it slowing down, apps keep crashing and the performance is not as fast as it was when you got it a few weeks or months ago? Then a factory reset is all the phone needs to make it as fast as it was when you first took it out of the box.

With a blazing fast and hot Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB RAM, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and a juicy battery, the OnePlus 2 doesn’t suffer when it comes to performance and gaming experience. The processor makes sure to keep up with the most intensive apps, tasks and games. But sometimes, the phone starts to lag and stutter like crazy for no reason.

Especially if you are a user who likes to install many applications and never use them, the phone might start lagging and apps start force closing. This is a general problem with a lot of Android phones where after some months the software simply gives up.

If this is happening to your OnePlus 2 then you can wipe its data and perform a full factory reset. A factory reset is the ultimate solution when your Android phone starts acting weird. When you wipe data, you delete all installed applications. Sometimes, one app can cause all the problems without your knowledge.
