If you mean that you are stuck on a Chinese menu, then can read our guide on how to factory reset an Android phone with a Chinese menu.

Otherwise, if you are using an English menu, you can follow these steps to restore your Chinese Android phone to factory settings:

  1. 1
    turn off your device
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  2. 2
    press the following:
     
    1. power button
    2. volume up/down or both
    3. home button (if any)
    4. if you do not have volume buttons, you should look for a reset button or hole and press that instead to trigger reset
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    release the power button when you see the Android guy
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    choose recovery mode
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  5. 5
    choose wipe data/Factory Reset
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  6. 6
    choose yes
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  7. 7
    device will reboot or will ask you to reboot
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

If you cannot do this on your device, I suggest you let a technician who is an expert in Android devices (especially for China ones) check and fix the issue for you. Alternatively, you can contact the manufacturer directly, and obtain their software update, and a link to the program you'll need to install on your PC to perform a software assisted Factory Reset.

You can easily reset your password through the Google Account Recovery Portal. Just follow the link, and then enter your details and information to confirm your ownership of the account. Once you've done this, Google will remotely reset your password for you, and you'll be able to regain access to your password locked Motorola Razr M, Android phone.

Hi, Sir! Do I have to press both power button & volume button at the same time?

Sir, I had forgotten my screen lock pattern. As you instructed initially I turned off the device. But, the second step was not clear.
