I was being guided by the voice queues in Google Navigation. Which was a problem because the screen was off and the voice queues just stopped. worst thing of all, it shut down and didn't reboot. I had to power it back up.
Every other smartphone that I have owned has rebooted at somepoint but this is the first smartphone that didn't restart automatically.
I had one random reboot yesterday, battery was about 30%, I turned on screen to check a text message then put it down, about 30 seconds later I noticed the boot animation. Dont know why it reboot, random.
One odd shutoff today while holding down the microphone on the Google search bar so I could see the predefined search terms in help. The display just went blank. At first I thought it was the screen timeout, but then I had to hold down the power button and watch the phone start up again. So I guess the phone just turned off without a reboot.
Anyway this is a shut down occurrence that needs to be looked into
My randomly shut off the first day and hasn't done it since. Didn't reboot or anything just did a full shut down and my battery was around 70% at the time just connected to my car's bluetooth idling. Wasn't on the phone or anything... thought it was odd but hasn't done it again since so *cross fingers* it was just a one time thing.
Up until the last few replies, I sensed a theme, but now who knows. For the ones that were doing a ton of stuff at once and/or were using navigation, I could see it possibly being an overheating type of situation and the phone just turns off so it can cool the battery down.
However, the ones who weren't doing anything I have no idea.
Mine did it twice yesterday. Once it rebooted and I wasn't even doing anything with it. I just looked down at it sitting on my desk and the "Google" logo was on the screen. Then after I had fully charged the battery and was about to shut down to install the new extended battery, it rebooted when I unplugged the charger (100% charge). So I pulled the battery and installed the extended one. Charged to 100% and it's been fine since.
So it just rebooted again for no aparent reason. It's not even plugged in to the charger, just sitting on my desk. I had a text message waiting, and next thing I know, there's the boot animation. WTF? This needs addressed real soon...
mine rebooted right after i "disabled" the vz backup.
I also disabled VZ backup the second I left the store on 12/15. Then on 12/17 my phone rebooted while opening up the camera with the front facing camera. Then it rebooted yesterday evening while in messaging. The uptime was 44 hours, and 6 hours later is when my phone rebooted on me.
Same thing happened to me trying to fire up Grand Theft Auto III, then I tried it again and half the text on my homescreen went black. Upon restarting the dialer was missing from the bottom of my homescreen and the Google+ widget couldn't pull any pictures. Restarted again and everything seems to be fine though GTA still craps out.
Had 2 random reboots today for the first time. Fully charged & plugged into my computer. Thought it might have something to do with just updating Nova Launcher. Maybe not though if others are having problems...
I've had about 4 of these same random shutdowns after I installed Go EX Launcher shortly after getting the phone. I used Go for a few days and after removing Go, I haven't had another one happen. Today I had a lockup where it stuck on the same screen (pulling down the notification bad and it got 1/2 way before freezing) but this was different in that the screen froze for 5 or so seconds and didn't go black and then rebooted itself. The previous issues I attributed to Go. I've not tried another launcher since.
p.s. I disabled VZ backup the minute I got the phone.
Mine rebooted and did the *22899 thing on me the first day I had it. It was fine and the it rebooted 3 times today. I think it might have something to do with the LTE radio. I was using Navigation the first 2 times amd Pandora the last. I think it may have lost 4G each time and didn't switch to 3G. I am going to keep it 3G only for a few days and see what happens.
