I love a clean start. There’s nothing like the smoothness of a smartphone (or PC) after a factory reset.
I’m using my Nexus 5 for almost a year now. For a while, I’ve been wanting to do a factory reset and start clean. The upcoming Lollipop upgrade is exactly the push I needed to do it.
My game plan:
- Before upgrading:
- Perform general app clean-up, so I upgrade only with the apps I want.
- Document my settings and configuration (system and apps), so I can re-apply it if needed.
- Backup data.
- After upgrading:
- Restore apps, data, settings and configuration, as needed.
- Explore what new built-in features can replace 3rd party apps I’m using. I always prefer built-in over 3rd party.
