The formatting of a Galaxy S9 allows you to leave it as if it were new, without a doubt, a more than useful process if you are thinking of selling one or if you just bought one in the second-hand market.

If you do not know how to do it in this post we show you the steps to follow to format a second-hand Samsung Galaxy S9 (or S9 +).

To leave a second-hand Galaxy S9 in the best possible state, we must resort to formatting it. Formatting it (or performing a "hard reset") will eliminate all information, settings and content that may have the mobile. And not only that, but you will also get to leave it with its original factory settings. That is to say, you will leave it ready to "release it".

However, you must take into account that before carrying out this process you must make a backup copy (or Backup) of all the files that it may contain on your mobile phone (photos, videos, music, files, ...) because once it is deleted you will not be able to recover them.

Having said that, the procedure to format or reset a second-hand Samsung Galaxy S9 is as follows:

  1. Access the Galaxy S9 application list and enter "Settings".
  2. Scroll to the option "General Administration" and click on it.
  3. Click on the option "Reset".
  4. Select the option "Restore factory values"
  5. Then you will see a screen with information about the process you are going to do. Scroll down and click on the option "Reset" (or Reset).

Once the formatting process has started, you just have to wait a while and the second-hand Samsung Galaxy S9 will start again clean of information and ready to reconfigure it as if it were new.
