How To Hard Reset Oppo K1 Screen Lock, Recovery

Factory resets are the best solution for many Android issues. If your Oppo K1 is far slower than it once was, you have a malware infection that won’t go away or plan to sell your phone, a factory reset is the most convenient solution. Let’s see how we can reset Oppo K1.

The Oppo K1 comes wrapped in a cool aluminium frame and features a 6.4 Inch FHD+ display with a resolution 1080 x 2340 pixels at 403 ppi. To ensure that the users have access to uninterrupted entertainment, it is powered by a 3500 mAh, li-ion battery.

It has an Octa-Core 2.2 GHz processor coupled with 4GB of RAM and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. It has an internal memory of 64GB and can be expanded to up to 256GB to store ample songs, videos, photos etc.

A reset is recommended before giving away or selling the device, and in some cases for troubleshooting. You can do a factory reset or a hard reset.

The former can be done by simply accessing the Oppo phone’s settings. Sometimes that’s just not possible. If the phone isn’t working or for some reason you can’t access the settings, you can go ahead and perform a hard reset using the hardware buttons.
