Howdy, my Galaxy S5 has developed an annoying problem where it randomly reboots. This is second S5 I have owned with this problem (first one fell of the side of the boat lol). Does anyone know if this is a problem with this model? And is there anything that can be done to fix it? Cheers

Hey Pete,

First things first, is it running the latest Android version? If not, upgrade it to the latest version.

Next, are all of the apps up to date? Update all of your apps.

Third, remove the SD Card if you have one inserted, to see if that was causing any conflicts.

Try these things first, then get back to me :)

Hmm... random reboots (thinking) there are actually a number of reasons behind the random reboots.

  1. Try turning the Auto Sync off for all the accounts.
  2. Now uninstall all the updates of the accounts i.e. Gmail, Samsung Account, Google Play Store, Google+ , Samsung Push Service (It can be done by Navigate> Settings> Application Manager> Select the Application> Say Gmail (Uninstall its updates) and same can be done for the apps mentioned)

Once, you uninstall the updates restart your device and then see if the random reboots again haunt you or not :? Till then I will dig more onto it ! And see if I can find something which can help you out ! :)
