    Well restarting a device will always shut it all the was down so I'm not sure what you mean. Can you elaborate?

    Most probably a reboot, instead of powering it down then up again.

    Gotcha.

    If that's the case, press & hold the power & volume down buttons at the same time until the Apple logo appears.

    Sorta-ish. I don't think it totally shuts it down, like on a computer. It's a process it has to do to restart (re start, it has to be off in order to start).
    It doesn't really matter, anyway

    It's a hard "restart". But technically it is and it isn't LOL.

    This thread is a catch 22 in itself Lol but I think the OP got the answer they wanted.

    What device do you have? The above only works for the 7 & 7 plus. If you have a previous device then you'll need to press & hold the power & home buttons at the same time until the Apple logo appears.

    You have to keep holding the buttons down for a bit longer and the logo will appear.

    As far as I know, That requires jailbreak.

    Restarting phone without hard booting. I believe it's called soft booting

    It's called respring if I recall correctly. It just restarts some parts of iOS.

    Power off or (soft reset) is push the power button to get the slide to power off. It doesn't completely shut down, although it turns off.
    A hard reset (full reboot) is a full reboot.
    7 Reset
    Hold the power/wake button and the volume down button at the same time until the Apple logo appears. Then release.
    Older phones:
    Hold the top or side power/sleep button and the home button at the same time until the Apple logo appears, then release.

    What's the best way to do? I know they always said with an Android restart every few days. Should I not do anything with this one?

    No reason to restart, unless there's an issue it might fix.
