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

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.
