Samsung Galaxy Nexus Hard Reset

The  Galaxy Nexus is Google's latest phone and the only one so far that is shipped with Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.2.  Samsung was the supplier of the hardware based off their galaxy models with Super AMOLED 4.65" touchscreen.  After the Jelly Bean update which introduced us to the Google Now.  The Google Now feature is extremely brilliant, I have been using this for some time now and can tell you Google Now makes my life just little easier.
I setup meetings in my Google Calendar along with the meeting's address.  "I am meeting Mr Smith 1 pm, Thursday September 7, 2013 at 46 Cummings St, Toronto, M4M1N1.  I live at Don Mills and York Mills.  At 12:30pm my phone alerts me that there is some traffic and i should be laving now so I can make the meeting on time.
This new Android OS is one sweet looking operating system.  Google has done wonders with this.  This tutorial will show you how to Samsung Galaxy Nexus Hard Reset

Before we start, I suggest that the phone have at least 50% of battery life left.  Secondly, you must understand that you will be losing all data that you have put into the Galaxy Nexus as this will restore to factory settings.

Turn the Samsung Galaxy Nexus cell phone on with at least 50% battery life.  Slide to unlock or show your pretty face, if you have lock screen enables.

tap the settings button and from there you will obtain a list of possible options.
Choose Backup & Reset and then down the list you will see Factory Data Reset 
Read the warning on the screen which pretty much says that it will Reset all data. If you want to erase the USB internal storage then click the check box.
Once you are ready for this just click on Reset Phone
