    Yes, I can't express strongly enough that you must sign out of all accounts on your phone before doing the reset, most important the Google account. Of course don't forget your Google account password.

    I believe (anyone can correct me if I'm wrong), if you don't sign out of Google before reseting, you will trigger "Factory Reset Protection" on that phone and then the next person who gets that phone will be unable to register and sign into that phone.

    I can at least tell you that when I reset my Note 3 & gifted to my daughter...my contacts popped back up, mixed in with hers. Very weird. Don't want a stranger having any of your info, so def sign out of everything before reset.
