What is Soft Reset?
A soft reset is a restart of a device, such as a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or personal computer (PC). This action closes applications and clears any data in RAM (random access memory). Unsaved data in current use can get lost but the hardware data will be safe such as files and folders. Soft resets are conducted to fix the malfunctioning of applications, the process involves shutting down the phone and starting it again. In contrast to hard reset which erases all the data from your phone it only restarts your phone.
