moto z3 - Restart 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 or run slow.

Note An alternate method is available if the device is unresponsive or won't power on.

  1. Press and hold the Power button until the 'Power off' option appears on the screen then release.
