Well, whatever the reason is, if you want to reset your Samsung Galaxy Note 7 back to the factory settings or factory hard reset, follow the steps below:

So, if you want to save something of the phone to be restored after performing the factory hard reset, you can back up the data you want to save into the SD card or other backup Galaxy Note options.
