Force phone to restart - Nexus 6


In the unlikely event that your device becomes unresponsive, try a force reboot or restart.

Warning: Don't attempt to remove or replace the battery - doing so may damage the battery and could cause burning and injury. 

To reboot the device, press and hold the Power key for 10 - 20 seconds.  The phone should power cycle and restart.

  • Data on your phone will not be deleted with a force reboot/restart.
  • Ensure that your device is charged to a minimum of 5%. If your battery is below 5%, then the device may not power on. A device that is completely drained should be charged for a minimum of 15 minutes using the provided charger. 

If you are unable to force the devie to reboot or restart, you may need to perform a factory data reset (hard reset).
