My Z1 will not work properly with my Garmin GPS. I need the GPS to manage calls when on a motorcycle. I really don't want to re-build my phone unless completely necessary (and especially not if there is an inherent compatibiliy issue!). So, I was wondering whether the hard reset using the "hidden" button was the same as powering off and on. If it's a deeper process, I'll give it a go and see whether my issues are resolved.

Thanks

Red button and power botton is not the same.
1. Red button doesn't properly shut down your phone (umount filesystems, wait for application finished correctly etc)
2. Red button make "deeper" shutdown. I find it when trying to fix problem with charging. No power button or power+vol combination helps, only red button do.

It seems like you cut off power cable on your computer, when red button pressed
