Resetting your iPhone with Home and Power

When you reset your iPhone with the Home and Power buttons, does that do anything different than simply turning it off and back on? Are they the same thing or is Home+Power more of a purge somehow?

Yes, the Reset via Home+Power kills all processes etc... So, if a faulty/buggy app freezes your device that is the thing to do.
Under stupid iOS 7.1.1 an iPhone 5s I used for a couple of weeks would randomly freeze
after some use of the camera. Nuddin would work except for Home+Power...
