How to reboot your Google Pixel 5 if it’s not responding?

Sometimes, your mobile performs slow while playing a game or doing some heavy task on Google Pixel 5. You can not continue the current task on your mobile phone. At that time, you will need to proceed with restarting your Google Pixel 5 using physical buttons.

Suppose you want to do a force reboot of your Google Pixel 5; 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.
