How To Wipe Vivo Y83 Screen Lock, Hard And Factory Reset

If your Vivo Y83 is running slowly or you’re encountering bugs and crashes on a regular basis, an easy solution is to simply reset your phone to its defaults, removing all your apps, files and everything else that could be causing a problem.

The Vivo Y83 comes with a meagre 64GB of internal storage but up to 256GB expansion is definitely a welcome addition. This device is powered by the mid-range Helio P22 with Octa-Core processor achieving up to 2 GHz of clock speed, that in combination with the PowerVR GE8320 GPU and 4GB of RAM deliver a reasonably smooth performance for daily usage and tasks.

The Vivo Y83 features a pretty decent 6.22-inch HD+ display with 720 x 1520 pixels resolution and 270 pixel density, the display coupled with the modern 19:9 aspect ratio.

A reset is suggested before gifting or selling a device, and in some cases for troubleshooting. You can do a factory reset or a hard reset.

The first can be done simply by accessing the Vivo Y83 settings. Sometimes that is not possible, though. 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.
