    Default a non Google store app and randomly restart?

    I was using an app that I didn't download directly fromGoogle store . all of sudden the tablet restated by itself.

    I am just wondering if it is caused by the tablet itself or the app?

    Are there known apps that cause rebooting? I already sent this thing for a repair when it had several random shutdown now it has a new one.

    Sometimes it randomly restart.

    It's hard to know for sure, but installing apps from sources besides the well-established stores like Google Play and Amazon Appstore is always a little risky. If you downloaded an .apk file from some random filesharing site, then it is definitely risky. But besides that, it may just not be entirely compatible with your device. The good app stores will know if the app is compatible with your device or not, and if it isn't compatible, they won't let you install it. But if it's just some random .apk file, there's no way to know what the compatibility is like.

    Uninstall the app for a few days and see if your problem goes away. But seriously, avoid unknown apps like the plague unless you really know the source. There is a reason Google hides that option in the developers section and by default hides the access to the developers section.
