@Pugs1957, factory reset setting phone to default, that's mean that Google account is cleaned too. Usually that's how working factory reset in many phones. I do not think in Samsung is different. Most important to do not do restore from back up which usually is doing automatic if i understand right in Samsung devices. About recovery, i agree too, that can't be recovery i think, but i always doing clean install of OS most time.

@Rozh, yes this is bad (if really Samsung account stand in your old phone), because possible to restore personal information which is backed up with Samsung account. You had to remove all accounts. But as i mentioned to @Pugs1957 factory reset of phone had to remove all accounts. So question did you really saw that Samsung account is still in phone? I do not know how working in Samsung devices, but my opinion have to be the same as is in most others manufacturers devices. Always check or everything is cleaned.
