Troubleshooting:

SAFE MODE:
1) Power down the device
2) Press and hold both Volume Down and Power buttons
3) When splash screen appears, release the Power button, but continue holding down the Volume Down button
4) Keep holding down the Volume Down button until you see 'Safe mode' in the bottom left corner of the screen

Safe mode disables all third party apps and runs stock defaults only. This helps if you suspect an app causing an issue with the device. You can uninstall problematic apps in this mode.

ANDROID RECOVERY CONSOLE:
1) Power down the device
2) Press and hold the Volume Up, Home and Power buttons together
3) When splash screen appears, release only the Power button, but continue holding down the Volume Up and Home buttons
4) When the green guy appears, you can release the other buttons
5) Use the Volume buttons to navigate the menu and Power button to select

Mainly use this to wipe cache. Or in severe cases a factory reset (last resort, nuke the device and start over approach).
