    Just wanted to know if both actually do the same. Or a physical battery pull is best.

    They do the same thing, as does left alt+right sym+delete, I think that's the key combination for the restart.

    No, they do not do the same thing.

    QuickPull does the same thing that Alt + Right Shift + Delete does, which is a soft reset. A battery pull does a hard reset by removing the power source completely from the device. A hard reset can not be duplicated via software and is a much more thorough way of resetting the device. There are situations that come up on a daily basis that a battery pull can resolve while a soft reset can not.

    Well put... early on I heard from one of the forum gurus that they recommended doing a soft reset at least once a week and battery pull about once a month... I guess it depends on how your device is performing and what you have running in the background, but I personally perform a soft reset every 4 or 5 days, and a battery pull about every 2 weeks... but no software or key combination will EVER replace a Battery Pull!!!

    This is probably a stupid question: When you pull the battery, do you lose data? Would you need to perform a backup/restore?

    No, there's no backup/restore involved. Its just like turning off the power on your computer.

    I don't use any of these apps or the buttons. When I need to do a battery pull I do just that... pull the battery.
