Last Update date : 2017.05.23

I want to perform factory reset, but found the information about removing some preloaded application in factory data reset option.

 

How can I reinstall preloaded applications after factory reset?

 

 

During setup wizard after factory reset, you can select the applications* which you want to install.

(* Apps from Google apps : Mandatory, Apps from Samsung apps : Optional)

 

If your device is connected to Wi-Fi, applications will be downloaded from Google Play stores

automatically**.

 

(**Google account is not needed to download application, but is needed to check the

downloading status.)

Or if you device is connected to 3G/4G, just notification will be displayed on the notification bar,

and downloading will be started when your device is connected to Wi-Fi.

 

If you want to download the applications through 3G/4G,  please tap and drag the notification and tap ”USE MOBILE DATA”.

 

Please remembers  as downloading via your mobile network may result in additional charge,

download via a Wi-Fi network if possible.
