    Default HTC One (M8) keeps restarting

    Hi ,I have had the m8 since Wednesday and it keeps randomly turning itself off then on again , I have contacted my carrier o2 in the UK and they are sending a replacement .
    I just wondered if anyone else is experiencing the same problem ?

    I've had my M8 since last Thursday and all was well until today. I noticed that it was getting pretty hot so took it out of my pocket, to see that it wanted to send an error report to HTC. Looking at the error log, it was listing write errors. The phone has then since been switching itself on and off constantly for the past four hours. When I switch it off, it even switches itself back on again! I've tried soft resets, hard resets, disabling apps, etc. All with zero effect. I've noticed that the swipe gesture/double tap activation no longer seems to work either.

    Bizarrely, the only thing that seems to stop the constant restarting is plugging it into the mains charger, which tends to suggest a battery/power related issue? Trying to get hold of EE customer services on my landline and have been holding for 10mins so far.

    The plot thickens. I disabled the 'fast boot' setting and powered the phone down sucessfully and let it cool down. I've just powered it back up and all seems fine.

    Yea, some days it doesn't happen at all but on bad days, it can happen up to 4-8 times a day. In the past couple hours it resetted twice...is this something that can be fixed?

    I would do a factory reset.

    I'm in the exact same situation - rcvd it on a Thurs, it "broke" a few days later. My issue was only w/incoming or outgoing calls. Internet and other items functioned perfectly (didn't reset itself) ... only phone calls were effected by this off/on thing. Solution for now is to return it for another one. Seems like something HTC could easily fix w/a software update/patch.

    got this restarting issue today. clearing cashes helped. all you need to do is switch off the phone, hold vol. down + power buttons, enter recovery mode, clear the cashes(Dalvik as well), restart.

    Mine only did this when I overclocked it. Maybe a defective processor on yours.

    I've had other droid phones that did random stuff like this but I've never had it happen on my M8 (except when overclocking).

    Try running antutu benchmark a few times and see if it reboots in the middle of the test. If so, it's probably defective hardware.

    Otherwise, it may be some app running in the background causing problems.
