Factory reset time for Xperia X Compact

Hello- I hit factory reset on my sony xperia x compact and it's been almost an hour and a half.  Initially the screen showed the android logo (for about 5-10minutes) but since then (over an hour) it has been on a white screen with the Xperia logo. 

 

How long should a factory reset take? Do you think there's some glitch or should I continue to wait it out.

I hard powered on and off a couple times. Would stay stuck on the Xperia screen. Finally, I let it be for a couple hours and it rebooted. So it definitely took some time but it's up and running.

it shouldn't take that long, you can use Xperia Companion to do the same and reinstall android.

Thanks for the reply! I downloaded the Xperia compnion. And chose the "software repair" option. However, it is saying that my device had lock code. Even though I don't have any lock code.

What happens if you restart the phone? does it start normally or does it get stuck?
