Our smartphones tend to freeze most times, especially in old phones or devices with full storage space. What people usually do is to restart their phones or turn them OFF and ON. When this does not work, we normally remove the phone battery and everything goes back to normal. However, some modern phones do not have this option because their batteries cannot be removed. Do not worry, we will tell what to do and how to do it.

The Solution: Depending on your phone, here are the steps you must follow to restart it:

  • Apple (iOS8 or higher)
    – Click Volume Up once
    – Click Volume Down once
    – Hold the Power key for 15 seconds.
  • Apple (iOS7 or lower)
    – Press the Power key + Volume Down key at the same time for 10 seconds or until the Apple Logo appears.
  • Samsung
    – Press the Power key + Volume Down key at the same time for 15 seconds or until the Samsung Logo appears.
  • Nokia/HMD:
    – Press the Power key + Volume Up at the same time for 15 seconds or until the Android logo appears.
