Have a problem with your Galaxy Note 20 or Note 20 Ultra and need to reset it? The factory reset restores your smartphone to its factory settings and will cure practically any problem with your device, particularly those that are software-related. This article will explain the process of doing a factory reset on the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra. Read on.

How to Reset the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra to Factory Settings

There are two techniques for doing a factory reset on your Galaxy Note 20 series, and we will go over both of them here. The first requires accessing your phone’s settings app, which is basic and straightforward. The second approach, which employs physical keys to complete the factory reset, is a little more involved.

Let’s look at each method separately.

Method 1: Using settings, perform a factory reset (also called Soft reset)

The settings app is used to do the factory reset via soft reset. Make a note of the device’s password, PIN, or pattern, as you will need it to execute the reset. This is how it is done.

  • By pressing the gear symbol on the home screen or the quick settings panel, you may access the Settings app.
  • Select General Management.
  • Then, select Reset.
  • Then, select Factory data reset.
  • Scroll to the bottom and press the Reset button.
  • When prompted, enter your PIN, Password, or Pattern.
  • To begin the reset, use the Delete all button.

Method 2: Using keys to perform a factory reset (also called Hard reset)

Using physical keys is another option to factory reset your Galaxy Note 20 or Note 20 Ultra. This technique, also known as a hard reset, does not require a password, PIN, or pattern and is the only option to reset your device if you have forgotten the access credentials and are locked out of it.

Here’s how to use this technique to perform a factory reset:

  • To switch off your Note 20, press and hold the Power/Bixby button and Volume down key together until the Power Menu displays, then hit the Power off button.
  • Now, for a few seconds, press and hold the Power/Bixby and Volume Up keys.
  • When the Note 20 logo appears, release the keys and wait for the Recovery menu to appear.
  • Use the Volume Down key, select “Wipe data/factory reset.”
  • To pick the choice, press the Power/Bixby key.
  • Select the Factory data reset option by pressing the Volume Down button.
  • To proceed, press the Power/Bixby key.
  • After the factory reset is complete, you will be taken back to the recovery menu.
  • To restart the device, select “Reboot System Now” and hit the Power/Bixby key.


The factory reset cannot be reversed. All of your apps, data, and settings will be deleted from your device, and they cannot be restored. As a result, before beginning with the reset, make a comprehensive backup of any vital files and data that you do not want to lose.
