    Default How to reboot the Nexus 5?

    Hey folks,

    I have an incredibly simple question and tried to look around but all I can come up with is other people having issues and wanting to hard reboot or just having random reboot issues.

    Simply, all I want to know is how to reboot the phone! When I press the power button, I only have the option to Power Off. Maybe it's in a different place that I'm not looking? I'm coming from a Samsung Galaxy S2.

    Thaanks!

    there is no "reboot" option.
    you simply power off, then power it back on again.

    Like you, I also came from a Galaxy s2. I absolutely love my Nexus 5!

    Like others have said, just hold down the power button until reboots. (Some people call it a warm boot)

    Heh, I actually added a Tasker widget to reboot the phone to save me those 10 seconds.

    After you root it, take a look at the Xposed Framework ([FRAMEWORK ONLY!] Xposed - ROM modding without modifying APKs (2.5)(23.03.2014) - xda-developers). You might like it .

    you can reboot the iphone press and hold the power and home button to-gather until you see apple logo on screen
    Its like a hard reboot i mean taking off the battery and putting it back again (classic phones style) and it also fix the issue you might be having

    Welcome to Android Central! Not sure if you thought you were posting in a different forum, but the question here was about a Nexus 5, not an iPhone.
