    i don't believe that factory reset will wipe my phone data completely, see this:

    any other advice?

    Sorry, the above method works fine on new Android devices. For old devices like S5, you can follow this guide:

    You can do a factory reset and can delete all your data at once, if you are still worried about the data recovery, just use an Android data eraser tool. For samsung users, check this tutorial:
