Do you own a smartphone? How often do you factory reset it? Never? Allow us to help you understand how completely wiping your smartphone every few months can be of great significance to you.
Basically, what we are suggesting is that you erase all content and settings from your smartphone and build it again from the factory settings. The benefit? You won’t have to go through the cumbersome task of clearing out old files or apps. Furthermore, all of your vital stuff is already backed up on the cloud.
Your SIM card is your phone number, and as long as you have access to your Google Photos or iCloud, you are good to go. As for the clean wipe, it will help you get rid of the old files from your smartphone. A clean slate, if you will. The performance benefits might not be that obvious, but this approach actually helps you become more productive. How? Don’t simply install back all of the apps. Rather, spend some time without installing apps and then install them as time goes by, and the need arises.
For instance, you can start by switching off notifications of all apps other than the ones that you use for communication such as SMS and Calls. Next, try spending some time without installing social media apps. This tech-cleansing of your smartphone will help you get rid of the apps that are just sitting in your phone memory.
This particular approach can help you get rid of the continuous distractions that have become a part of the smartphone package. Furthermore, such a cleanse would not only boost your productivity but will also help your smartphone remain clutter-free and clear of any data that was left behind by an uninstalled app. Ultimately, it will help you use your smartphone the way it was intended to be used; as a tool.
