All of a sudden my Android (Lollipop) stopped responding while I was using an app. I pressed the power button two times and the problem persisted.

I waited a few minutes and pressed the power button again. It showed the lock screen, but still the smartphone (Moto G) didn't respond to my touch commands.

How can I reboot my device? I can't touch the "Power Off" option neither can I remove the battery.

  • Are you charging with an incompatible charger? That could sometimes lead to this not responding issue. And it's your phone rooted?

    Have you tried holding the power button for like 20 seconds or so? Oct 13 '15 at 20:31

Press and hold the power button for 10-20 secs and your phone will force reboot, in most cases anyway. If your phone still doesn't reboot, then you'll have to remove the battery and if its not removable you'll have to wait for the battery to run empty.
