    So what's your Up Time?

    How long has it been since a restart of your device?
    I am coming from the BlackBerry PRIV, which after a while, I found myself doing daily restarts just to refresh the device.

    Your Up Time can be found under Settings, About Device, Status, and then at the very bottom.

    So far my UT is 322:35:51
    (That's 322 hours...) I haven't restarted my device since the initial set up and it hasn't slowed down once. This Pixel XL is AWESOME!

    Mine is just 37:13:20...just over 37 hours but I got it 2 days ago and the battery died finally so I had to restart it.

    I restarted mine after about a week just to see if it made any noticeable difference in anything. It didn't. At this point, unless something crashes, I'll probably see whatever the time is between updates worth of uptime.

    I am tempted to do the same and see if it would be any faster, but I really don't know how it could be faster. Especially after I got rid of the transition animations and such in developer options. Its so quick!

    I did the same thing with the animations. The phone is fast enough that it makes a big difference in how it feels. The animations end up just being a waste of time.

    Only time my phones ever get a reboot is if one is mandatory for updates. Never had any issues with slowdown, even after 2+ years on the Nexus 5. If anything it got faster with improvements the updates brought.

    I reboot once every week or so. Just have always done that with all my phones.

    Why is that? I keep hearing that from Android users. I never did that with iPhones, so it's new to me. Is it really necessary?

    No -- not necessary. I rebooted my iPhones and I still reboot my iPad Air 2 every week. Just something I have always done.

    The longest I've gone was 4 months on my Note 4. I've gone 3 months on a S3. I reboot my IP7 often. Actually, it reboots for me, LOL, since I get beta releases of iOS every 3 weeks or so lately.

    Wow, 4 months. I am going to try for as long as possible.

    If you exclude mandatory OS update reboots, I have gone well over 2 years without a reboot required for other reasons.

    Now days though with the monthly security patches it kind of takes the fun out of it haha.

    You should. What actually happened was that several friends of mine made a bet on who would not reboot his phone the longest. We ignored every alert to upgrade firmware.

    O darn, I didn't even think about the monthly updates! The curses of having a Pixel and getting those every month.
    Should have went with a Samsung....

    I find it's always good maintenance to keep the phone running smooth to reboot before everyday (when it comes off the charger) or at least once a week. Anytime a friend asks why their phone is slow (iPhone, android or even laptop) I ask

    - when was the last time you erased your texts?
    - when was your last reboot?

    They always thank me after

    IMO, if I have to reboot a phone daily or delete texts to keep it from lagging, something is wrong or the phone is just a piece of crap.

    Yes, yes. Unlike desktop OSes, there's not much memory leakage or driver conflict that would require reboots. The Android garbage collector is quite efficient, unless an app does not properly handle bitmap recycling, or an async task is not receiving whatever context for which it's expecting. In addition, analyses show that frequent reboots do harm to batteries.

    Well I have made it 538 hours since my last reboot. Just got the push for the 7.1.1 update so I have no choice. Might as well do it.
    Let's see if I can push it to the next security patch.
