If you have internet, you can use the Google Account Recovery Tool to remotely unlock your locked Android phone. Just fill in the details Google asks for to confirm your ownership of the device, and you will be able to remotely reset the password. Once this is done, you will need to enter a new password. If you are unable to do this, then you will need to reset your device. To do this, please read our guide on how to Perform a factory reset on your Android Phone, which has complete instructions for resetting any Android device that is able to be reset by hardware. Note that some devices require a software reset, in which case you will need to contact the device manufacturer to receive their software update. They will also direct you to a third party too, which you will need to install on your system to be able to perform the Factory Reset. If we can be of additional assistance, please let us know.

How to set language on Chinese Android phone?

I have a obey so1 Chinese smartphone. I succeeded in translating it from Chinese to english, but the browser that came with it is still in Chinese. and I can download apps also. I can find Play Store either.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Check Googles Supported List for Play Store to see if your device is even compatible. You can download Play Store in APK if your device supports the option. Changing the language on a phone does not always change the menu language in recovery modes and other settings like downloading apps. Go back into settings and under the symbol A with three dots change your language to English again. Install an app like Chrome and use that as your default browser.

My Android tablet does not have a volume button, and my tablet is locked with a pin code?

So please tell me how to reset? If I delete all the data by computer will my tablet restart or that will damage it's software? Please tell me?

Delete all data is what you need to do to factory reset your tablet. You also can look for a tiny pinhole on the back of the device which will factory reset the tablet. This generally does destroy drivers unless they were corrupted in the first place.

My phone is in Chinese and cannot read it to reset?

My phone is an international unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6. When the phone dies instead of powering up it goes into a Chinese menu. How can I avoid this every time

The phone is hardwired to go into recovery mode so make sure that it does not fully die before charging. Look for the MME option to wipe data. You may want to backup this phone in case this happens again. Get a phone charger for the car or one of the solar panel ones to avoid your battery dying.
