It would probably be useless to introduce smart phones, which we commonly call, to people nowadays smartphones. Smartphones have been a part of our lives for several years and go hand in hand, most of us can't imagine a full day without them.
This article briefly introduces you to the differences between turning off and restarting your smartphone. It may be a trivial matter at first glance, but there is a good chance that you will find the answer to some of your questions in this article.
So what's the difference?
The main difference between turning off / on and restarting the phone is relatively simple. As you probably expect, the difference lies precisely in the processes that take place during these actions. Specifically, we mean affecting software and hardware.
The moment you click the restart button, only the system will turn on and off. It is important to note that the hardware is still live and therefore the physical clearing of the cache does not take place in this case. Switching on and off works more in depth.
When you turn off the device, everything turns off completely and unnecessary temporary files are deleted. During the subsequent start-up, a process begins which checks the correct functioning of the software as well as the hardware parts.
As a result of this check, manually turning it off and on will take us more time than restarting your smartphone. However, if you have read carefully, during the complete shutdown, the temporary files will be completely erased, which will significantly speed up your smartphone.
There is also a slight difference in spending energy. The process of switching off and on triggers more actions in the smartphone, which also means that the energy consumption is slightly higher than during a simple restart.
If so you need to speed up your phone, reach for manual shutdown if you only need to fix some bug in the system, a restart is enough.
