Performing a factory reset of the LG G2 is a cinch!

Careful because resetting your entire phone back to how you first got will erase all of your files, including documents, pictures, music, saved settings etc. This should only be done if you REALLY need to, if nothing else is working, not even powering on and off, clearing the cache etc. So make sure you perform a FULL BACKUP of your files before commencing.

Tap on your Apps icon on your home screen.
Find your settings and go to the General tab.
Scroll down to and tap on Factory Data Reset
Check the box for backup my data as well as backup account and automatic restore, if you so desire, and then choose Factory data reset to conclude.
Read the warning and then choose reset phone.
Tap on erase everything and then your device will be completely reset to square one and reboot (restart).

Done!

Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power button. When the LG logo is displayed release the Power button only then immediately press and hold the Power button again. Release both buttons when the Factory data reset screen displays. From the Factory data reset screen, select Yes.

Before the resetting of LG G2, you'd better transfer important files from LG G2 to computer as a backup.
Step 1. You can pull down the notification shade.
Step 2. Then you need to tap on the icon on the top right corner.
Step 3. Just click on the gear icon to click on the Settings.
Step 4. Select the Backup & Reset button.
Step 5. Click on the Factory Data Reset
Step 6. You will receive a notification that remind you all the files will be erased and you can just confirm it.
Step 7. The start screen will show up if you finish the reset.
Step 8. Then you may be required to enter the account or other information. Just click on the Not Now button to skip to the next step.
Step 9. Finally just open the app tray and start the Gallery to see if there is still photos in it. If there is no photo in the device, that means your device has been reset successfully.
