My Galaxy smartphone has frozen, how do I restart it?

If your device is frozen and unresponsive, press and hold the Power button and the Volume button down simultaneously for more than 7 seconds to restart it.

Press and hold the power and volumn down buttons simultaneously

If after restarting the device you still find your device freezes sometimes or is sometimes unresponsive, there are some actions you can try to help correct this symptom:

1 Create memory space.
2 Check for software updates for your device.
3 Check your device in “Safe mode”.
4 Perform a Factory data reset of the device. Before performing the factory data reset, remember to make backup copies of all important data stored in the device.

If the problem is still not resolved, contact a Samsung Service Centre.

If you're experiencing unusual behaviour on Samsung mobiles, tablets or wearables, you can send us an error report or ask us a question in the Samsung Members app.


This allows us to a closer look at what is happening. The data is anonymised and only held for the duration of the investigation. Find out more about sending an error report through the Samsung Members app.
