    Soft Reset does not delete your application/data. Its like restarting your phone.

    What a soft reset vs hard reset is depends on who you talk to anymore. There are several different ways to reset, so putting them into two different categories doesn't work. I try not to even use the terms hard or soft reset anymore. Here are the different ways to reset your phone:

    Power off/power on (hold power button, swipe down, then when phone turns off, turn it back on)
    Hold power and volume down buttons until the phone vibrates (10+ seconds)
    Factory reset - Settings | about | reset my phone | yes | yes
    Using Nokia's software to reflash the phone (I haven't done this one, so I don't know the process)

    It's when you softly push down and hold power button and then swipe down across the screen
