How to Enter Safe Mode on Sony Xperia 10 / 10 Plus

Here is the complete procedure showing how to access and enter safe mode on Sony Xperia 10 / 10 Plus. Safe mode is a great tool that allows you to figure out whether or not a third-party app is responsible for the problems you may be experiencing with your smartphone. These include things like overheating, automatically rebooting multiple times a day, crashing, and more. So, how exactly can safe mode help? Well, when you boot your device into safe mode, all third-party apps are disabled, while those that are pre-installed still work (YouTube, Gmail etc).

If the issue you’re experiencing goes away while in safe mode, you can be sure that one of the third-party apps is responsible for it. The only problem is that it might not be obvious which one is the culprit, as you can’t disable just one app. Nevertheless, you can figure out which app was installed right before the issue started and get rid of it from your device, which should solve the problem. Entering safe mode is an easy task to complete and won’t take more than a minute of your time. Check out the short instructions on how to enter safe mode below.
