A factory reset is the ultimate cleansing of your Android device. When you perform a factory reset you're essentially wiping out everything you've ever done to the phone or tablet and restoring it back to the basic manufacturer software. It doesn't uninstall any software updates you've received from the phone manufacture, but it does wipe out any core application updates you've downloaded after buying the phone. Or put it another way, factory reset your phone to the state when you bought it.
