1).Be Sure your Samsung Android phone is at least 80% charged in power.
In case of any unwanted Samsung phone problems, the phone decrypting process is not suggested to be interrupted by sudden power loss or power surge, etc. Hence, always fully charge your phone or make sure your phone is at least 80% charged in power.
2).Be sure your Android phone photos, videos and files are backed up well in advance.
In daily use, people are always suggested to make phone data backups well before any phone format, delete or the like change. And this time, you are also supposed to save data backups well in advance. Merely extract everything stored on the phone internal memory to external storage devices well and also save copies of important data stored on the phone SD card, CF card or Micro SD card well to else storage devices or locations.
3).Different branded mobile phones may differ in disabling the encryption function.
In these days, many android phones with different brands, like Blackberry phone, Sony Smart phone and more, may have different settings when you need to remove the phone encryption. You’d better choose the method according to your own conditions. For example, when the android phone offers no encryption setting option, go straightly factory reset it to go on.
