Everyone tends to experiment with their Android phones. In fact, the best part of the experience is that you can root it to get features from other phones. The Play Store and internet also have third-party apps that can change a phone’s UI experience and allow you to do tons of other great things with your phone. It’s even better when it’s a Snapdragon 855-powered Asus ZenFone 6 that has the right hardware for it.
Sometimes, a bad third-party app can start wreaking havoc with your phone, especially because it starts straining the processor, RAM, or even the battery. The same can happen if your phone is too crowded. Too much stress causes a shutdown that cannot be sorted with the usual power-button press.
It is in such cases that you have to force restart the phone using the guide below.
How to force restart the Asus ZenFone 6
The steps to perform a force restart are fairly simple:
- Press and hold the Power button on your Zenfone 6.
- Keep it pressed for 10-15 seconds until the screen turns off.
- The screen will turn off to signal shutdown but the device would boot up again normally.
- In case it doesn’t, then press and hold the Power button once again till the device turns on and the logo flashes on the screen.
A force restart is never a good indication of your phone’s health. A little caution can really go a long way in such cases. Do have fun with your phone but be careful about the apps you download and software that you install on your phone. Sometimes, just checking for the review on such products can help you avoid installing something potentially damaging.
Also, try keeping sufficient space in your phone by shifting files to a cloud service like Google Photos or moving them to an SD card. These measures can make all the difference in the world when it comes to the performance of your phone.
