When to perform a soft reset

We should mention that restart, reboot, soft reset, etc. all basically mean the same thing – cycling its power state.

How to soft reset Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G

There are two ways to perform a soft reset. When the phone isn’t frozen, you simply press and hold the Power button. When you see the Restart option, tap on it. Your device will reboot. That’s it.

But, there is another method that comes handy when the phone is frozen and responsive. Since the majority of phones these days come with unremovable battery, a soft reset serves as a simulated battery removal.

Here is how to software reset your device with hardware keys:

  • Press and hold the Power button and the Volume down button at the same time
  • Keep holding the buttons until the screen powers off
  • Wait for a couple more seconds as the phone restarts.
