    I have to turn off my Note 4 every day before reporting for work, so it gets restarted every day.

    I restart if something goes wrong, like a rogue process or faster-than-usual battery drain. Today, Muzei wallpaper app died, so I restarted and all is spiffy.

    Plus, it only takes like 40 seconds for the phone to reboot, so it's not a big deal to wait for it.

    Rooted T-Mobile variant on AT&T here, a daily reboot profile in Tasker reboots my phone at 5AM just after my morning alarm. At the same time audio levels are returned to normal (they are lowered automatically when placed on the charger at night).

    Tried to set up a Tasker profile but I get a error in Tasker saying "sorry that action is unavailable for your device"...the reboot option is in Red font for me instead of it being black font in the Tasker app.

    Are you rooted? For that type of function, you likely need to be rooted.

    I had no been restarting unless I had a problem, after reading some of these posts I may try a daily restart just to see if it improves anything. Coming from an iPhone, I never restarted.

    restarting does indeed prevent all sorts of nasty's from getting to your phone including freezes. I let it go a couple weeks by mistake and the thing really started getting glitchy. Functionality became spotty. Battery drain up. Starting losing whole functional pieces. Not pretty.

    Just press and hold the power button until a screen comes up that allows for restart, and other basic functions. Hit restart and a minute later you are back in business with a nice freshly rebooted device.

    Restarting it once a day, or once every 2 days has the opposite effect: it prevents freezes.
    That is almost like saying that if you drive your car into a wall every day, it might prevent an accident.

    In two months I have only powered off my phone to swap the battery, or the SD card a few times. I did reboot the phone last month after installing some smartwatch software that was acting up.

    One a week or once every two weeks maybe. Not often.

    Once every couple of days. Did this with my S3 and it kept it running smooth.

    I am in the process of making my Note 4 self aware.

    Odd logic.

    The biggest causes of freezes are software/process conflict, runaway processes (e.g., poorly coded apps), and RAM that's not released by a process correctly.

    Restarting a phone forces all process to end and frees all the RAM.

    Yes I know, and I said it somewhat in jest.

    Maybe, "it is like opening the door once a day in case there is someone standing there wanting in".

    yeah I kinda realized that I had to be rooted for it...I did search on my own and came to a preliminary conclusion.
    anyways, no i am not rooted so no luck for me there...

    other apps out there who do the same thing ONLY if u are rooted!

    You won't find any app that will reboot a non-rooted phone. It's a safety mechanism to prevent malware from taking over your phone. A reboot must be manual. If a phone is rooted, then an app can be given system-level access and will them have permission to reboot.

    The Note 4 does reboot pretty fast...a lot faster than my old Note 2 which takes forever.

    Because it takes 27 seconds and definitely makes the phone work better for me, that's why! And it recalibrates my battery meter on each reboot. It will kill any rogue apps consuming data...battery etc.
