  • You need physical interference with the phone to restart it.


    Or if you have usb debugging, plug it onto your pc. Use ADB tool and do adb reboot.

  • Press power button for too long till phone gets restarted.

  • Hi akkirathore1292,

    Sometimes in rare situation phone may get freeze and the touch input gets deactivated. This can happed due to multiple reasons like Apps not compatible, App using too much memory under normal circumstances etc.

    You have to keep holding the power button for 10-20 seconds which activates force restart on the phone. The phone should reboot and come back to home screen normally.

  • I've had this happen to me twice and I think you hold the power and volume buttons for like 30 seconds or something. It was pretty annoying because the screen was full brightness and the whole phone was hot so I was worried about burn in if I was going to wait for it to die...

    If you hold the volume down and power buttons simultaneously it will go into soft reset/reboot. You don't lose any data this way but you may have to turn a few things back to your previous settings. In my case all I need to redo is turn the animation speed off again
