If your Samsung Galaxy Note 10 plus is stuck on an endless reboot cycle or keeps restarting endlessly then this article is just for you.

Buying a flagship mobile like the Galaxy Note 10 plus is still not a guarantee that you will not face any software or hardware glitch. It can be pretty frustrating to pay a bomb for a premium device and yet run into seemingly unsolvable errors.

This is precisely what happened to me. I bought the mobile in 2019, just when it was launched. Over the years it has proved its worth as a warhorse. It has been my daily driver and while the S-pen is nothing to write about in terms of daily usage, at least for me, and to that extent, it has served me really well.

Multitasking, having a zillion apps installed, constantly switching back and forth between numerous apps, gaming, and whatnot. I think the abuse that I must have dished out to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 plus is not a joke and has left me mighty impressed with all its capabilities.

That being said, I woke up one fine morning to discover the battery drained to about 13%- when I typically charge it fully at night- and the phone is just restarting on its own. Like all, I thought this could be some app compatibility issue and proceeded to uninstall the new apps that I had just downloaded the day before. But nothing, nada, zilch. 

In fact, the situation quickly deteriorated to such an extent the time gap between each restart came down to 20 seconds!

That was simply not enough time to do anything really. Like a fool, I have switched off auto backup for most of my accounts which included my business Whatsapp and all gallery. At the end of the day, I ended up losing over 150GB worth of data accumulated over 3 yrs.

So, just in case you find yourself stuck with the same problem, here are a couple of steps that I hope can help you resolve the issue and save your data.

Before I list out the steps that you need to follow to get out of Samsung mobile keeps restarting, it’s advisable that you run a preliminary check on your mobile.

Preliminary Check


At the outset, check whether your mobile is overheating. If so, then wait for it to cool down before you attempt to restart it. If your mobile is kept directly in Sunlight, or near a hot place, then remove it from its place immediately. 

Overheating will not only cause your phone to shut down and behave erratically but in extreme cases can also cause your battery to explode.

So, please remove it immediately and let it cool down first.

Forced Restart

I know, your phone is already restarting continuously and here I am suggesting you do another restart. But, bear me out. One of the reasons why your Galaxy mobile is restarting constantly could be a bad patch of boot files. When you force restart, then you clear out this corrupted patch of boot files and force the mobile to revert to its default factory settings. Many times, this alone will solve your problem.

A forced restart, will also clear out your system cache and delete all temp files. Many times, we go for days continuously, without restarting our mobile even once. This leads to accumulating many temp files, which may prevent your mobile from working properly. It can cause your mobile to freeze or become unresponsive.

  1. Press and hold the Power key and Volume down key simultaneously.
  2. Keep both keys pressed for about 3 seconds.
  3. Mobile should now restart.

Hardware Check 

If you have recently dropped your mobile or it has suffered a major bump, then your problem would straightaway be a hardware-related one. It is better, in this case, to take your mobile to a certified Samsung Care Professional who would be able to properly diagnose and replace the faulty hardware component.

Phone Freezing/ hanging

Does your mobile constantly freeze or hang while you are using it. Observe the times that it does so. 

Often, your mobile would be freezing or hanging, after prolonged usage or overheating. If this is the case, you must let it cool down first.

I would also recommend removing any mobile covers or magnets that you might have attached to the back of the mobile phone. Sometimes, these covers or magnets, and stickers will interfere with the heat dissipation of the mobile causing it to overheat and then freeze.

Disable Auto Restart

Samsung has this feature wherein you can schedule an auto restart. This feature, while helpful in clearing out cache and temp files, can sometimes cause the phone to go on a restarting loop. So, if you are facing this problem then try disabling this feature.

Here’s how to disable Auto Restart in Samsung Galaxy Mobile-

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Goto Device Care.
  3. Tap the 3 dots on the top right corner.
  4. Tap Auto Restart.
  5. Toggle it to Off.

Let the Battery drain completely

This may sound unorthodox, but some of our readers will swear by this method. I, personally have no clue about how and why this works but there is no harm in trying it out.

Just let the battery completely drain out and leave the mobile overnight. Then plug it in the morning and start it.

Check for Software Updates

Ok, obvious as this step may seem to be, we often ignore this. Check for any software updates or app updates and if there are any then download and install them. 

Goto Settings > Software updates and check if there’s a software update available. 

To check for app updates, just open the Play Store and check for updates for your apps from your profile.

With the preliminary checks out of the way, let’s proceed to the next steps of solving Galaxy Mobile stuck on restarting.

Step 1 – Run your Galaxy Mobile in Safe Mode

Samsung Safe Mode

This is the first step that you need to do. This will help you in diagnosing where exactly the fault lies and why your Samsung Galaxy Note 10 plus is constantly restarting.

Putting your mobile in Safe Mode will disable all third-party apps that you might have downloaded. So if the problem of rebooting or restarting is caused by a third-party app, running the mobile in Safe Mode will help in diagnosing it.

If your mobile works perfectly in Safe Mode then this is proof that the issue lies in an app that you might have installed.

Now, you will need to uninstall each and every app that you may have downloaded to identify which app was the culprit here. I know this seems like a long process but unfortunately, there is no other way besides manually uninstalling each app, then taking your mobile off Safe Mode, and then checking to diagnose and identify the app which was causing the error.

Here’s how to restart or put your Samsung Galaxy Mobile in Safe Mode-

  1. Press and hold the Power key until the Power off options appears.
  2. Press and hold the Power off option until Safe Mode appears.
  3. Tap the Safe Mode icon.
  4. After restarting, you will be able to see “Safe Mode” in the text on the lower left corner of the screen.

That’s it, you have now started your Samsung Galaxy mobile in Safe Mode.

This should have solved your problem. However, if your Galaxy Note 10 still keeps rebooting even in safe mode, then you should try the next option.

Step 2-Reset all Settings

If your mobile still keeps restarting even in Safe Mode, then you need to reset all settings of your mobile. By doing this, you are basically resetting all network and other settings of your mobile, without erasing or deleting any data.

This is a very safe step to do as this does not harm your data or files. This step merely resets all settings of your Galaxy Note 10 Plus to its original default factory configuration.

Here is how to do a Reset all Settings of your Samsung Galaxy Mobile-

  1. Goto Settings>General Management>Reset>Reset Settings.
  2. Press Reset Settings.
  3. Enter your pin if you have enabled pin lock.
  4. Tap Reset Settings once again.
  5. Your mobile will now restart to finish resetting all settings. 

Now use your mobile as you would normally, and check whether it still restarts or keeps rebooting.

If it does, then you would need to proceed to the next step.

Step 3-Delete System Cache

If Resetting all Settings did not solve the problem and your Galaxy Note 10 Plus is still stuck on a rebooting cycle, then you need to Delete the System Cache on your mobile. 

The system cache on an android mobile can get corrupted especially after an update or some app installations. A bad system cache will often cause the mobile to overheat or even freeze and become unresponsive. Clearing the system cache allows the corrupted or damaged cache to be easily deleted without affecting any of the data or files. 

After erasing the corrupted system cache, your mobile will rebuild a new cache automatically as you use the mobile on a daily routine.

To clear your System Cache, you need to first reboot your Galaxy Mobile in recovery mode.

Follow the below steps to reboot your mobile in recovery mode:-

  1. First, Power off the mobile.
  2. Now Press and hold the Power key and the Volume Up key simultaneously.
  3. Now your device will boot up and the Samsung logo will be displayed.
  4. Keep holding both the keys till the Green Android logo is displayed.
  5. Now release both the keys.
  6. Now your Recovery Menu Screen will appear. This will be a black screen with blue and yellow text.
  7. Using the Volume down key, bring the cursor down to select wipe cache partition.
  8. Use the Power key to select it.
  9. Press the Volume down key again to select Yes.
  10. Press the Power key to select it.
  11. After this, the system cache will be wiped, and Reboot System Now option will be highlighted. 
  12. Press and select it to restart your mobile.

After you have restarted your mobile, check whether it still restarts or reboots. 

If despite clearing the System cache, your Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus keeps restarting endlessly, then you need to try the next step.

Step 4-Factory Reset or Hard Reset

Samsung Recovery Mode

I have suggested this option at the end as restoring your mobile to factory Reset means wiping your whole mobile, erasing all data, and restoring it to the default factory configuration. As by doing this, all data will be lost, I do hope that you have been in the habit of backing up your data on a daily/weekly/monthly basis.

If none of the steps above have managed to repair your mobile, then there is no other option but to Factory Reset your Galaxy mobile. 

Factory Reset essentially formats your entire mobile, thus if any damaged or corrupted files were causing your mobile to behave wonkers, then this step should rectify that.

There are 2 ways that you can do a Factory reset.

Method 1:Factory Reset using the Settings app.

  1. Open your App drawer.
  2. Goto Settings>General Management>Reset>Facory Reset.
  3. Go through all the warnings and then Tap Reset again.
  4. Tap Delete All to confirm the action.

Sometimes, you may get an error while Factory Resetting your mobile through the Settings menu option. Some errors like “ Please Charge your mobile to 10% to continue” even though your phone has sufficient battery charge, might display.

In this case, you will need to do a hard reset of your mobile through the Recovery Menu.

  5. Now release both the keys.
  6. Now your Recovery Menu Screen will appear. This will be a black screen with blue and yellow text.
  7. Using the Volume down key, bring the cursor down to select  ‘Wipe data/factory reset.’
  8. Use the Power key to select it.
  9. Press the Volume down key again to select Yes.
  10. Press the Power key to confirm factory reset
  11. After this, your mobile will be formatted and it will automatically restart.
