Tips on how to tackle software problems on Android phones

1) When Your Phone Won’t Turn on at all for unknown reason, Let’s say maybe the boot process fails, the device freezes, or it immediately reboots or shuts off, there may be a problem with your device’s software. Perform a factory reset of your Android device when it isn’t booting properly due to crashing or freezing software. By using this method you’ll lose everything that isn’t synced to online services or not backed up.
• Turn the device off completely, then boot it up with one of the following button combinations:
• Hold Volume Up + Volume Down + Power.
• Hold Volume Up + Home + Power.
• Hold Home + Power.
• Hold Volume Up + Camera.
Note: These vary from device to device. If none of these combinations works, try performing a Google search with the name of your device and “recovery mode” to find the correct key combination for your device. The device will boot to a screen with an Android and an open chest panel if you’re successful. Press the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons until the Recovery mode option appears on the screen. Press the Power button and your device will reboot into recovery mode. The steps are self-explanatory once you enter recovery mode.
