If you'd like to reset your Samsung Galaxy S3 to its original factory settings, the process is really quite simple.

First, tap the options button under the screen (it's on the left).

Then, tap settings. Go to the "Personal" section and click "Back up and reset." From there, tap "factory reset." You're done!

Beware that all of your personal data will be lost...
