The Sony Xperia Z is a great feature packed phone. But with an operating system like Android that’s open to any number of customizations and tweaks all around, there are chances that a couple of new launcher or app instals might get your phone to the not responding state.
In such a situation, restarting the Xperia Z in a forced manner cannot be done by directly plugging out and placing the battery in as the back battery panel is closed and the battery isn’t removable. To go about doing that, here’s a small fix you could follow:
- Press and hold the power button for or 5 along with the volume up key.
- Remove your finger when you feel the vibration and then press and hold the volume up button for 10 seconds.
- Now the phone begins to shut down automatically with a three-pulse vibration attempt.
- Now turn the phone on again normally as you do and the phone has restarted.
Though the external battery removal option isn’t available, there is a way to force restart the Sony Xperia Z. Let us know how it went in the comments?
