Samsung Galaxy S8 users now facing random restarts

Samsung Galaxy S8 Android flagship facing random restarts

In addition to the Bixby button problems and the red tint issues, it looks like Galaxy S8 users also have to face random reboots. Strange enough, the handset seems to be restarting for no obvious reason.

Samsung Galaxy S8 launched as one of the most interesting flagships to hit the market so far, but it looks like the ill-fated heritage of the Note 7 is haunting it. Until now, we heard of display problems that Samsung also confirmed and launched a software update to take care of them, then we heard that the Bixby button would remain useless in many markets, and now it looks like more than just a few Galaxy S8 flagships have another kind of issue.

ZDNet spotted complaints of Samsung Galaxy S8 users on the company's US community forums, as well as on the popular XDA Developer forums. The reports started to show up a week ago when Samsung's US community forum member Lazazy revealed the following: "So I picked up my Galaxy S8 and everything seems to be working well except the phone keeps restarting itself. I have had it for about 10 hours now, and it has already restarted 7 times while I was using it."

The complaint above continues with Lazazy revealing that the reboots are completely random, sometimes occurring when the handset charges or simply sits idle. Samsung still has to comment on this matter, so we will get back to it as soon as that happens.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
