Maybe you often see the text or the Reboot button on a smartphone and understand what it means, but for some other users who have just been in contact with computer or smartphone technology will be confused about what exactly it means to reboot and what functions when rebooting. In this session, I will specifically discuss the reboot or commonly called restart on an android smartphone.
What is Reboot on Android smartphones
The word reboot is often assumed to be restarting or reloading a running system. Before the famous smartphone, as it is now, the word 'boot' or 'booting' was very familiar with the existing system on a computer or PC.


Boot in the language of a computer system is defined as the initial preparation where the system will synchronize the input and output of hardware with pre-existing settings, and the word reboot means to reload the system from the beginning, where if the boot process is successful the system will enter into the initial display screen smartphone and ready to use.

However, if the boot process is interrupted, the system will not allow the process to continue to a higher level and the user will not be able to see the normal display on his smartphone screen.

What Happens When an Android Phone is Rebooting or Restarting?

We go deeper into the sense of booting or restarting, where a simple example if you just turn the phone off, then press the power button so that the phone is on, that is where the boot process will occur, which means the system kernel will check every hardware, setting, and firmware to be in sync with each other and not have the slightest crash or error in one of them.

When the boot process is running, of course, you are treated to a screen display in the form of a cellphone logo, where actually behind the screen runs thousands of script programs that organize, synchronize and check such as SIM card slot preparation, internal and external memory card preparation, checking power conditions, performing CPU checking, indexing system files, and all necessary processes until finally being able to enter User-Friendly view (desktop start screen) on the screen.

But if there is one boot failure that is found by the kernel and the system, the cellphone will not turn on, it can result in the screen will continue to appear the logo without being able to enter the system (boot loop or brick), it could even be just Blank screen does not look anything, it's also due to a boot failure.

By knowing how the boot process works, now we continue to discuss why the phone should be a boot or restart and why it is not recommended to be turned on continuously without any process of 'restarting' the system...

The Purpose of Reboot a Smartphone

Actually, there is a purpose and why on every smartphone when you press the power button for a few seconds there is a choice of 'reboot' or Reboot or even with familiar words that there is a 'restart' button. let's see the answer...

#1. To Keep Performance Stable

The word 'Reboot' or 'Restart' the system aims to rearrange the existing system files to avoid corrupt or lose one of the program scripts. Where the file system is the root of the cell phone so that it can interact with its users. So to always maintain the condition of the cellphone in top condition, smartphone users occasionally reboot to keep the performance excellent and stable.

#2. To Synchronize with Newly Installed Apps

Rebooting on a smartphone also serves to synchronize the application with the system, where frequent crashes occur the application can be prevented by rebooting again. Likewise, when you have just installed the application, the best way to keep the application running as expected can be to reboot the phone before the newly installed application you run.

#3. To Get Well Performance

Rebooting a smartphone can maximize CPU and RAM performance, where when you feel the phone looks slow or laggy, please try rebooting so that the RAM, processor, chipset and network module performance returns to normal.

#4. To Clean Junk Files

Reboot process can also clean temporary files or temporary files that cannot be lost without reloading the system. Generally, temporary files will fill RAM and storage space as long as the phone is active even in a standby state. So, to maximize system performance and clean up junk files you can try to reboot the system regularly 2 or 3 days.

These all are several reasons above why the phone must be reboot occasionally, of course, smartphone users should wisely use the reboot menu to reload the system instead of decorating the power menu. I hope, this post has helped you to get a broad knowledge about the android Reboot or Restart option. If so, share this post with your friends.
