How do I switch Android Phone Without Power Button?

android power button

Most times, we face problems with our Android devices with apps. Such typically occur when programs or the operating system itself is compromised by an accidental device crash or deceptive software results. This can lead to performance problems or glitches that contribute to the smartphone’s unwanted behaviour. These rogue apps will cause the development of bad cache files on your computer that not only take up space but also affect daily use.

In such cases, restarting / rebooting the Android device or smartphone can help in removing corrupt code and starting the device again. To do this, you just need to click the 2-3 seconds power button and then pick power off from the pop-up screen. We can also press the power button until the system restarts.

Nevertheless, if the power button is a mechanical button, it may become unresponsive or die out after a while. This can be a real problem, as we can not now power a computer or turn it off. A power button on Android smartphones is an important button.

If you’re in a similar situation, don’t worry. In this post we tell you how your Android device can be rebooted or restarted without using the power button. You can also go through this guide to be conscious if you ever face such a need.

So let’s start!

Using Home Button and Number

Try this trick if your power button doesn’t work and you need to restart your computer.

    • Try to press both the volume buttons for a few seconds at once. A boot menu will appear on the screen. Select Restart to reset your computer from this screen.
    • If your computer has a home button, you can also attempt to simultaneously press the volume and home button.
    • If nothing works, drop your mobile battery and shut down your phone. Then load it and restart it.

Use double tap to light up the display

You should try the following tips if your smartphone is in sleep mode (screen off) and the power button does not work.

    • If the Home button of your computer is, just press it to wake the screen.
    • Many smartphones now have a double-tap to wake up. You can use this app.
    • If this feature does not work on your smartphone and volume controls also do not support it, simply plug the handset into the loader and the monitor will light up.
    • If this is not feasible, ask a friend to call you.

When your phone is open, the first steps can be used to activate your Android device with volume buttons without a power button.

Several applications are also available to restart the Android phone to help you solve power button problems. In this section of the article, we will recommend two of the most commonly used Android restart applications.

Use the Volume Power Button


As the name suggests, this app allows you to use your mobile volume button to wake up if its power button is disabled or if it isn’t functioning properly. It is a free app in the play shop and also fully free of charge.

When the app is installed, you need to grant it the rights of an administrator to perform power button tasks using the volume button.

Gravity Screen


Gravity Screen is another feature that is useful when the Power Button doesn’t work, which includes administrative privileges. If you put your Android in your pocket, bag, and even laptop, it can automatically turn off the screen, and it will light up if you pick up the phone. You don’t have to press a single button and you’re good to go.

Other than those, there is a certain app that allows you not only to turn the screen on and off but also to restart the computer with a software option. Because such an operation requires profound machine privileges, you have to roots your computer to use these applications. It is only then that you can achieve full functionality. See Android Phone and Tablet Root and Unroot.

It is strongly recommended, however, to buy a new Android phone. A power button is a very important button and the value of the power button increases with most smartphones arriving with full-screen displays and no other keys these days.
