Almost all of us use smartphones and whenever something goes wrong in our phone or when the phone starts running slowly, we just restart the mobile phone to refresh the installed operating system whether its an Android phone, Windows Phone or iPhone. Rebooting the phone makes it run smoothly as everything starts from scratch.
But many times if the phone hangs i.e. freezes and enters into a not responding state, it doesn’t react to any touch input or button press. In such cases, we need to remove the battery from its backside to forcefully restart the phone and it solves the problem.

In such phones, if the phone hangs, what will you do to make it working again? Since you can’t take the battery out, will you wait till the battery level ends and the phone switches itself off? Obviously, no.
