In this tutorial we will show you two ways to reset Android on the Motorola Moto G Dual SIM. Which procedure you use will depend on the current state of your device.
If you have access to the Applications Menu of your Motorola Moto G Dual SIM, you can use the first method. You would use this method if your device works ok, but you noticed that it’s lagging, or you simply want to give it a fresh start, returning it to it’s factory settings.
You will use the second method if your Motorola Moto G Dual SIM has stopped responding, or you have lost or forgotten the lock pattern you previously set.
Remember that when you reset Android you loose all your personal data, including contacts, messages, and any applications you may have installed, so, if possible, do a backup of all your data before starting with any of the procedures.
Also make sure the battery of your Motorola Moto G Dual SIM is charged to at least 80%, to avoid any unwanted shut-downs mid-process.
