In order to reset Android, you may need to perform a Soft reset: It is the same as -and may be accomplished by- removing the battery, waiting for some seconds and then placing back the battery on your Android phone.

This would effectively perform a soft reset Android while usually retaining all contacts, configuration and information previously saved in the phone.

A soft reset might prove useful if your Android phone has just freezed on you or perhaps it is behaving lagged, erraticaly or plainly weird.

Under any circumstance where a normal power off / power on recycle is impossible, you may try a Soft Reset to forcefully power your Android device down. After some seconds you may restore the battery on your phone and try to turn it on again in order to confirm that your problem has been corrected.

Soft reset Android Tablets

If you need to do a soft reset on your Android tablet, and it has no user replaceable battery, then you may search for your tablet brand / model on this website in order to get the soft reset Android procedure for your device.

Some Tablets got a small hole in the back, usually labeled “Reset”, where you can poke a pen tip or thin wire and momentaneously press a reset button. Other Android tablets need their power on/off button to be depressed for several seconds in order to invoke a soft reset Android mechanism.
