How to force restart OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro

We must admit, OnePlus is leaving no stone unturned with the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro.

The OnePlus 7 Pro particularly is an astonishing device, one that gives something that even the likes of Galaxy S10 doesn’t: the 90Hz AMOLED truly full-screen panel, super speedy software, and a retractable camera.

But even though the OnePlus 7 Pro is super fast and all, you could still land yourself in a situation where the device gets stuck.

In such cases where the OnePlus 7 Pro stops responding to touch and the screen stops to react, you need a trick to solve this problem.

What you can do is force restart the phone using the hardware keys, and only hardware keys (because the software is not playing along anymore!).

Under this method, the OnePlus 7 Pro will force shutdown and restart automatically, and when it does, the ‘not responding’ problem will be fixed.

How to force restart OnePlus 7 Pro

Here is how to force your OnePlus 7 handsets to shut down and restart without using the screen touch.

  • Press and hold the Power button on the right side of your OnePlus 7/7 Pro. Keep it pressed for 10-15 seconds until the screen turns off.
    • That’s it. 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.

Viola! You OnePlus 7/7 Pro is good to go again.

How to make sure it doesn’t stop responding again

Well, the OnePlus 7 devices are pretty solid performers. They are super fast and stable, but there could be situations that may kill performance.

Bad app installation is one such example. If you download a bad app, whether from the Play Store or using its APK, if it consumes too much RAM, the device may start to stutter and eventually hang. In such a case, to fix the problem, it’s good to check out the recent apps that you may have installed and uninstall them right away.

Similarly, if the storage is full, then also this problem could occur. To fix this problem, it’s good to transfer the files on your phone (photos, videos, documents, etc.) to PC and then delete them from the phone. You may also consider saving the images and videos online (in the cloud) using Google Photos, in fact, we totally recommend you that as it’s free and limitless that’s why the best). You can also sync the files to your Google Drive if you want.
