    Use the volume keys simultaneous for a couple of seconds and your phone will perform something different than taking screenshot.

    Holding down the volume buttons performs a real (or almost hard) reset, and works even when your device appears to be stuck. It's the closest thing to a battery pull. You'll notice things like the android run time need some time to fully restart afterwards (little blue bar at the bottom).

    Restarting the phone via the soft buttons does not invoke as "full" of a shutdown, and can obviously only be done when your device is responsive. Not really sure what the advantage of that is other than perhaps closing some rogue apps, and app memory leaks, and clearing network/radio stack issues.

    To clarify, I was saying that I think the methods are identical with the exception being the volume keys will take a screenshot as well. 2 birds one stone! Lmao
