A common question that many have been getting asked after the recent release of Samsung’s Galaxy S7 smartphone is how to enter the device into Recovery Mode. Below I’ll teach you exactly what you want: how to get your SGS7 into Recovery Mode and let me also be clear about why you should do that.

As you probably know, there are various reasons why you want to use this recovery mode on your smartphone. This mode is basically available in almost all Android devices including Samsung’s most recent Galaxy S7 and be sure that it is there for a specific reason.

As you may know, the factory reset (aka hard reset) will bring the state of your Galaxy S7 back to its original state and it is not something that you will never do.
