This is why I came up with this simple tutorial which will help you in resetting your Samsung Galaxy S5 to factory settings using code, button combination or from settings menu.

Please follow the below steps carefully to factory hard reset your Samsung Galaxy S5 in the blink of an eye.

Before initiating the hard resetting process make sure that the Galaxy S5 is  undergone a backup of all your contacts, data and what ever it is on your phone memory to a safe location. Also make sure that you have removed the sdcard from your phone before resetting it to secure the data on it.

Hi,
How do you enter the code ?
When I enter through phone keypad, the *#xxx*#, phone wants to make a call, what am I doing wrong ?
Tried with the Vol+ home, power buttons, phone just starts up normally, no recovery mode screen, any ideas, it is a SMG-900H
If I try factory reset from menu, asks for password.
Any ideas how to check memory status on this phone, every time I go on the Internet, get "out of memory error" after browsing for a while.
Any help, advice appreciated.
Regards

Just dial the number, please don't try to call. Also you have to release the power button once you see your phone model number on screen while holding all other buttons to enter into recovery mode.
