    Could it be the battery losing connection?

    Note2 or Note10, that is the question

    Try using a knife or something pointy and scrape the oxidation off of the copper contacts on the battery

    I would NOT scrape the GOLD plating off of the battery contacts.
    Maybe a pencil eraser to clean them, then wipe then with a cloth. Or just wipe them with a cloth.
    It none of that helps, get a replacement ordered.

    Are you using an aftermarket battery? Some aftermarket batteries have a thing spacer strip along the top edge of the battery. Sometimes this strip can come off making the battery fit just loose enough to lose contact with slight jarring.

    My wife started having this problem with her HTC Vivid phone which is only about 3-4 months old. I thought of the battery, but the battery seems to be pretty snugly secured...

    Mines does the same thing and then android updates takes a whole minute to reboot.

    any solutions yet?

    Sounds like you might have to do a factory reset. I don't think cleaning oxide from the copper contacts will help that
