My n8's first freeze and how to hard reset it

This day is the first time my phone freezes/hangs and its kinda frustrating because I don't know what to do. Anyway the story is that I'm riding the MRT while playing games and listening to music on my phone. It was a typical day but didn't go as planned. I forgot to hide my bluetooth from all devices. So while I was playing hero of sparta someone tried sending a file via bluetooth then there it goes. I tried cancelling the transfer and then the phone freezes. Can't do nothing about it since i dont know how to turn off the phone. Can't also remove the battery to force the phone to turn off.

I only reset the phone when I came into the office. Able to research on how to hard reset it.

Hold the Power , Volume decrease, Camera shutter and Menu button simultaneously for 5-10 seconds (or until the phone turns off).

Why did you had to press all of those keys ? Isn't that combination for a factory reset of the device ?

I knew that for a hard reset (when the phone freezes) you only need to press the power key for about 8 seconds to restart it... Or this didn't work for you ?

i dont think its the factory reset combination cause i still retain my data and apps. pressing the power button for a lont time doesn work either
