How can I reset my phone when its stuck on system update?

When I leave it to charge on its own its stuck on charging mode. ًThen I turn it off and back on its stuck on system update, how can I reset my phone without deleting the data on it

You must have let the battery completely drain before charging. Remove the battery for 5 minutes and connect the charger without the battery. Then insert the battery back and see if you can charge the phone to 100%. If you turn it on and the System Update is still there then repeat the process but this time leave it on the charger until it is 100% and then turn on the phone while still connected to the charger. See if you have a PC Suite type of program for your phone. Sony, Lenovo, and Samsung all have a PC Companion software to making backing up a device easier. You can also run status checks on your phone's hardware with some of these or hard reset your device using the program.
