Factory rest vs fresh firmware install

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com - forums.androidcentral.com
I haven't done a factory reset since I've owned my note and of course there have been security patches plus the update to oreo along the way. If I have time at the weekend I thought I might do a factory rest and start from scratch, just for the fun of it!

Does doing a factory reset have the same effect as installing the firmware from scratch? Or, given that the firmware on my phone has had a number of updates along the way, would the cleanest method be to get hold of the full firmware and to install that? Can that be done through samsung software or would I use odin and sammobile?

My phone runs fine but battery life isn't great and I wonder whether a factory rest might help that out
