ASUS ZenPad™ Z10 - Power Up in Safe Mode

Safe Mode puts your phone in a diagnostic state (returned to default settings) so you can determine if a third-party app is causing your device to freeze/reset / run slow.

An alternate method is available if the device can be powered on and is responsive.

  1. Ensure the device is powered off.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Down button.
