How to reboot your Google Pixel 2 if it’s not responding?

Sometimes, your mobile phone performs slow while playing a game or doing some heavy task on Google Pixel 2. You can not continue the current task on your phone. At that time, you will need to proceed with restarting your Google Pixel 2 using physical buttons.

Suppose you want to do a force restart of your Google Pixel 2; press and hold the power button for at least 8 to 10 seconds until you see Android Logo or Google logo appearing on your screen. Now release the button to let it start again.

Sometimes, your device is not responding even with physical buttons. You can not even force restart your Google Pixel 2. It’s possible that your mobile phone has a low battery. The only solution in that case, is to connect your charging cable and try again.
