Android is a popular set of software used widely on several models of smartphones. If your phone starts experiencing problems or crashes frequently, you can perform a hard reset on the device. A hard reset completely removes anything you’ve saved to the phone and restores the Android to its factory settings. Only use a hard reset as a last resort, as you will have to re-register the phone and re-download any applications and updates.
- Press and hold the red power button for three to five seconds to shut down the Android phone.
