Hello. Just wanted to know if I reset my phone to factory settings, would that make me lose all my pictures that I have in internal memory which is over 200gb worth. If so what's the best way of keeping all pictures safe so they won't disappear

Thanks

A factory reset takes the phone back to the last firmware update so yes it can delete you pictures and other items like.contacts etc. 

 

You can back them up to Samsung Cloud if your phone isn't already doing that automatically. 

 

I personally also use Dropbox. 

 

People can use Google Drive and Sd Cards too along with other online vaults.
