How to Restart or Shutdown Hanged Android Phone

Your phone could hang and stop working when you need it the most. There could be several reasons responsible for hanging your mobile device but most common of them are: RAM is full and no more memory available for running apps and processes, any hardware stopped working or you installed an app or ROM that was full of bugs. Any Android phone, tablet or smart watch varying from entry level to high end can hang. If there is no technical fault in device then there is nothing to worry about. It will just start working fine after restarting it.



If your phone has removable battery, removing that will shutdown your hanged phone. You can turn on your phone again after reinserting its battery. But this is a time consuming and unwanted technique. Also, these days most new phones come with non-removable batteries. So this trick can not be applied anymore. (The logic behind non-removable batteries could be water proofing the battery or stopping users from using replacement batteries made by third party vendors and forcing users to purchase batteries sold by phone manufacturers and increasing their profits.)

You can easily restart any of your hanged Android phone or tablet without any hassle. It’s just the matter of one or two buttons.



Method 1:
(This method usually works with every Android phone including tablets)

– Press Power button for 5 to 15 seconds. This will shutdown your phone.
– Now restart it by again pressing Power button.

Method 2:
(This method is device specific and may or may not work with your Android phone)

– Press Power button and Volume up (+) button for 5 to 15 seconds. This will restart your phone normally or into the boot or Recovery mode. You can just get out of that boot or recovery mode and continue with normal restart.
– Press Power button and Volume down (-) button for 5 to 15 seconds. This may restart your phone if supported. (Simultaneously pressing power and volume down buttons also captures screenshots on Android devices)

We will recommend to follow ‘Method 1’ described above as it is the most common and hassle free solution to restart any of your hanged phone. You can even restart your Windows Phone and Apple iPhone with this method.
