Of course it becomes very annoying when suddenly our Android phones don’t respond or hang. This event can occur because of the cache that has accumulated while installing the application. Now you can reset or reboot or soft reset on an Android phone to get back to normal.
Rebooting and resetting have a different explanation, rebooting is the same as reset, by turning off your device. It aims to close and reopen the operating system.
