As perfect as we’re sure Samsung was hoping the Galaxy S8 launch will be, just like whenever new hardware or software launches, there are bound to be issues that are only uncovered after a release. Recently it seems that there are some Galaxy S8 owners who are complaining that their phones are randomly restarting themselves.
These issues have been posted on the XDA forums as well as Samsung’s official forums. One user by the name of “Lazazy” writes, “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. It happens when I’m using an app like the camera or Samsung Themes and it doesn’t matter if the phone is charging or not. All of a sudden the app freezes, the screen shuts off, and a few seconds later it restarts.”
However we should point out that the number of users reporting this problem don’t appear to be too many so it doesn’t seem like it is a widespread issue. It could be due to the apps that they are using that are causing the phone to crash and restart, and since everyone is using different apps it’s hard to pinpoint what exactly could be causing this.
