The Sony Xperia Z1 follows the likes of Xperia Z Ultra which came with a physical button to hard reset your smartphone. Sony has really got things easier and less confusing, so if for any reason you want to hard reset your Xperia Z1, all you need to do is to locate the “OFF” button.
This “OFF” button has been technically placed under the MicroSD flap. The image below should explain better if things are still getting messy at your end.
Once the red “OFF” button is located, press and hold it for 2-3 seconds.
Hint: Do not use a sharp object to press “OFF” button. The tip of a pen should work for you.
On completion of the task, your Sony Xperia Z1 would hard reset and you could make your device return to a functional mode.
