How to Soft Reset A Samsung Galaxy M51

In this tutorial, you will learn how to do the Soft Reset on your Samsung Galaxy M51. Such a procedure can be very helpful if you have minor issues with your phone. That’s why you need to learn how to do it. Read on to learn more about it.

It’s one of the most overlooked procedures, but the soft reset is actually the easiest solution you can use if your phone has some minor issues. Most users refer to it as a reboot but it’s actually a Forced Restart. It’s a simulated battery removal that refreshes your phone’s memory, reload all apps and services, as well as fix minor software-related issues.

Unlike other reset procedures, this one doesn’t delete any of your files or data. So you can do it whenever you like or if your phone has some issues you want to fix. The procedure is pretty easy to do. Here’s how: 

1. Press the Volume Down button and the Power key at the same time, and hold them both for 8 seconds. This is regardless of whether your device is powered on or not.

2. If it’s currently powered on, then it will shut down and then power back on. Once the logo shows, release both keys and let the phone continue the boot process. 

When the phone reaches the lock screen, you can then unlock and use it. It’s memory should have already been refreshed, apps and services reloaded and if you had minor firmware issues, they may have been fixed already. 

Should you wish to just restart your phone, then all you have to do is to press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power key for a couple of seconds until the power options show. Tap Restart, and then confirm you want to reboot your device. 

This will also refresh the memory and sometimes it’s what you need to do to make your device work smoothly again.
