Just before Factory Reset | Backup made easy

Befor any factory reset of your mobile
The first step is to backup your data.

Here are some apps that I use to back up data and make my self free from worrying about losing data.

What made me to Backup data

1. Once I lost my mobile and I lost all my data and contacts and the important notes that I wrote from long time, this made me to think that that I need to keep my data backed up every day

2. The other incident is my Android mobile got into an issue where we will not be able to use home button , incoming calls and notification menu. Then I tried to transferer the data into my PC but unfortunately USB debugging was also not functioning. So with lots of effort I finally backed up my data.

Here are some apps that can help us to stay ready with Backup.

1. Contacts +  :  This app helps us to save contacts, messages, call history and stay happy

2. Keep : this is an app by Google where the notes can be synced into cloud. You can also access your notes on desktop @ this was very helpful for me to keep safe of all my notes

3. WhatsApp : I use Google drive as my backup location for WhatsApp data. So once you login to new device you can backup WhatsApp chat and pictures from Google drive automatically.

You can enable backup in WhatsApp by
Settings > Chats > Chat backup > Backup

Moto G3 Home Button , Notifaication Bar | Recent apps | Incoming calls not functioning are Resolved

I want to share my personal experience on the issue with Moto G3 that I faced repeatedly.

The issue is like :

1. The home button will not be working
2. Incoming calls will not come, the caller will receive either a busy tone or Ring and call drop. But       you will be unaware of this.
3. Notification bar fly down menu will not come down
4. You will not be able to switch between the apps, Recent apps button will not respond.

For all the above issues there is a solution that i personally executed and RESOLVED the issue.
You need to Factory Reset the Motorola device / Android device to bring it to normal state.

Before Factory reset you need to back up all your all as Factory reset will erase user information.

HOW to Factory Reset your Moto G3

Factory Reset : Android 5.x (Lollipop)/Android 6.x (Marshmallow) Steps 
  1. With the phone powered off, press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power button at the same time until the device turns on.
  2. Press the Volume Down key to highlight Recovery mode.
