Samsung Galaxy S7 / S7 edge - Soft Reset

Note Turning the device off and on is sometimes called a soft reset. This is similar to restarting a desktop computer and is often one of the first steps in troubleshooting a device. In most cases, a soft reset won't affect data on the device unless the battery is very low.

  1. Press and hold the Power button (located on the right edge of the device).
  2. Tap Restart.
  3. Tap Restart again to confirm.
    Note There is an alternate reset process if the device is frozen/unresponsive.
