Galaxy S6 - How do I force my Samsung Galaxy S6 to reboot or restart when the screen is frozen or the device is locked up?

Last Update date : 2015.07.30


In the unlikely event that your device becomes unresponsive, you can attempt a force reboot. This will power your device off and back on without affecting any data stored on the device.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Warning: Do not attempt to remove the battery from your device. Doing so may damage the battery and could cause burning and injury.

Force Reboot

To force reboot your device, press and hold the Volume down and Power/Lock keys on the device for 10-20 seconds. This performs a simulated battery disconnect.

Note: Ensure your device is charged to a minimum of 5%. If your battery is below 5%, the device may not power on after the reboot. A device that is completely drained should be charged for a minimum of 15 minutes using the wall charger supplied with your device.
