    Many thanks to contributors to this thread. I now realise the "optimising app" msg on my Motorola Moto G (older version) was caused by restarting while charging.

    Yes, the long press (more than 6-8 seconds) of power button will trigger the "optimization of apps" issue.

    I just ran a cache wipe but it didn't solve the issue, in my case. I didn't want to Factory reset my Moto G.

    Power on your phone just by pressing and hold 2 or 3 secs the power button.

    I have the 2013 Generation, purchased early 2014. This has been a great phone and I would like to keep it a little longer. Unfortunately I am having this same issue. "Optimizing Apps". There is no rhyme or reason...not rebooting - can be on wifi or not. The phone shuts down and starts optimizing. I have had it "optimize" twice in one day. It takes 30 minutes or more to complete the cycle. I am thinking it is Verizon/Moto's way of telling me "get a new phone". It is very annoying, since I really love this phone and other than this have no reason to upgrade at this time.

    This just happened to me and I wasn't charging. It is rebooting itself (on its own) and optimizing apps. After the optimization the phone is freezing up if I use any apps. Google Play services is also constantly crashing...useless phone...again...like every update. (it was updated a few days ago but the issue started today.)
    Mine does it too

    My castrast will not go all the way down and is very bright and battery level goes down fast, and reboots on its own, and auto optimizes.

    Have you gotten a system update???

    I've read that this will fix the problem, that its the manufacturers fault, that they do not check their devices and we must wait for a system update,

    Which I've heard is next to never for manufacturers that are second rate

    So yesterday my android started shutting down and optimizing app and hasn't quit. What can I do? It keeps shutting down and optimizing, shuttting down and optimizing. I can't even get into my phone nor can I shut it off. It drained my battery to nothing while because that is all it does and won't shut off or finish optimizing.

    Any solutions?

    Thanks!

    I've noticed that every once and a while I will get the following message when restarting the phone.

    "Android is Starting"
    "Optimizing App x of xxx"

    I know this should happen once after an upgrade, but it seems to be happening every few re-boots of the phone now.

    Anyone else seeing this behavior or know of a solution?

    hey everyone, ive been getting these exact same issues since yesterday; phone started optimizing all apps on its own, ever since it finished its been overheating then lagging and eventually freezing. The only time it'll work without an issue is if I boot it up in safe mode, I've cleared the cache but still the same issues.
    Has anyone come up with a solution yet??

    I have a Motorola Droid Turbo

    Same problem. For years now. And even though I have been super careful not to restart while charging, it just started "optimizing" by itself, and I'm locked out of my own damn phone for hours waiting for this nonsense when I had important messages to send.

    It's really amazing that this """smart"""phones cost thousands upon thousands, and the people who develop them get paid triple figure salaries, yet all they have to show for it is glitchy failure products. If I made so many "glitches" at my won job that wasted countless of hours of people's time for nothing, I'd be fired. Just a complete joke really.

    I had this problem where my phone shut off, rebooted, and then started overheating and lagging. I found that two of my apps (Facebook and Facebook Messenger) had trouble opening. I uninstalled and reinstalled both of them, and now my phone is not overheating and lagging. Maybe try opening each of your installed apps, and if any of them has a problem opening, uninstall and reinstall it?

    My girlfriend was having massive battery life issues for the past 8 months. Then early this week started having the constant rebooting - optimizing that you guys are describing. She uninstalled the facebook app and the issue went away. Now her battery is lasting like it used to. So for those of you having issues, its worth a shot.

    Should have added that this is a moto x gen 1 from ATT. Uh, this should have followed a longer post that apparently has gone to moderation for approval. I'll fix the two posts once it appears.

    Moderator Note Welcome to the forums, please take a moment to read about PUPPAH: Community Rules & Guidelines - Mobile Nations Forums

    That said, phones absolutely do NOT need to be turned off at any regular interval, let alone daily.

    Not really.

    A modern smartphone doesn't need to be restarted so frequently. Sure, you probably should do a reboot every once in a while but thanks to advancements in hardware and especially software in the backend, there's really not that much of a reason to reboot the device so frequently.
