    I think you just hold the power button until the screen goes black, just like a desktop computer.

    Alternatively, you just wait until it runs out of battery :)

    Force a shut down. Depending on the phone it is different for my phone it is holding Power and both Volume buttons.

    Good question! Battery pull always a great means for clearing up rogue battery drain on custom ROMs (in my experience)

    On Nexus devices and most tablets you just hold the power button until it reboots/powers down.

    Soft reset. Don't know how to do it on this phone but, for example, on the samsung s3 you press and hold down the volume, power and home buttons.

    I always got screen shot and reset backwards. Every time I tried to take a screen shot on my old tablet I would hit the power + volume up buttons instead of power + down buttons.

    I've never owned a phone with a sealed battery either, but I'm guessing the old cliché, 'have you tried turning it off and on again' (i.e. hard reboot) applies.

    it just shuts it down. Then you can boot it up again like normal.

    In the nexus 4 you just long press the power button until it shuts down. Then turn back on and it's back to normal. :D

    I'm currently using HTC one (m7) and it doesn't have a removable battery as well.
    I've never faced issues with that, besides I have never needed an extra battery etc.. as my phone usage is fair and I have an external one for long trips.

    I think that phones with non-removable batteries are neat, you wont need to open it and play around with it's contents..

    got the solution from a post in XDA...

    listen up...
    Possibly no buttons will work... so no resets might work either... and especially when you dont want your battery to start draining... then this is what you have to do...

    No matter how jammed the phone is... it most probably will respond to a high priority thread call...

    like... receiveing a call... or charging the phone...

    so try asking someone to call you... or connect your phone to the charger... if you're lucky... it will shift "the reason its getting jammed" into the background and free up a few resources for starting a high priority thread in the fore ground.. so on getting reception back now..
    immediately use a task killer to get rid of the app thats creating the stalling... then restart your phone!!!;)
