Is there a way to hard reset my Android and retain my pictures?

My Android Samsung Note5 will not recognize my finger tip to unlock my device, and I have tried to open up using my Gmail account and it does not recognize. Trying to use my password too as a second option and it does not recognize it.

Your only options here will be:

  • Logging on to Find My Mobile service. Use your Samsung account log-in name and password. Click "Protect my device". You will see "Unlock my screen". Click it. Click "Unlock" and test your smartphone: you should be able to get into it. If you cannot, then reboot the device.
  • Checking if you have created previously a back up in Smart Switch or Kies. You can use it later on to restore your data onto your smartphone.
  • If you have a microSD card, then the pictures might be stored there: hard resetting will not remove them.

If none of these tips worked, then you will have to hard-reset your smartphone, which will take away all of the data stored in the internal memory. You can use our generic tutorial on Samsung Galaxy smartphones to reset your device.
