Before You Start

  • Make sure that your Oppo A83 is charged at least 50% so that your device doesn’t run out of power during the resetting process.
  • Backup all your phone’s data. This will reset the smartphone to the factory default state and it will clear out the memory buffers and reset the smartphone and application data.
  • Once the hard reset is done, the phone will ask to enter the Google account and password that was previously linked with the device. Therefore, you must know the google email and the password.
  • If you have encrypted the microSD card, you must decrypt it before resetting the phone. Otherwise, your smartphone will not be able to read the data on the card.
