Possible Causes the Unit Restarting

Are causes of simple, which often may be complicated because the owner of the device does not spend time researching and making the appropriate diagnosis of the device. Each model has some specific problems, as is the case with a car. Search the internet for the most common problems on your mobile device is the that you have from the most basic to do to avoid begin to complicate still more the problem of your device. We will only list the most common causes, as well as a simple solution for each one of them. It is worth the reminder: we are not responsible for whatever happens to your device. This article is informational, and does not replace the work and service provided by a technician trained and authorized to give maintenance to smartphones.

  • Storage space on the machine too full

What happens more often than it should, is that people buy a unit cheap, and start to fill the internal memory of it with photos, videos, music, etc. Without realizing the harm that this causes, people are realizing the mobile phone more slow, crashing a lot, even to the point of start to reboot constantly.

The truth is, that gadgets cheaper has an internal memory very small. If the device has an entry to microSD card, it becomes easier to release this space, or it takes longer to occupy the entire space. However, the truth is that, in most of the times, people even care about the storage space of their devices. And the solution to the problems caused by this is simple.


Connect your device to a broadband internet connection. Go to the app store of your smartphone and download a program such as Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive or any other similar cloud storage. Most programs have an option to “sync” the device or “make automatic upload of photos and videos”. Many applications have the option to delete the files after upload. If you do not have this option, just delete manually all the photos, videos and music so that the app warns you that the sync/upload is complete.

  • Conflicts of applications, many programs are “passive” and oh too heavy

Who ended up installing an application and began to experience instability, it sure has a conflict between applications. If your unit allow enough time to access the screen of Apps before you restart, just uninstall the application. The same goes for the programs, “liabilities”, which continue running even after you get out of them. Social networks and email applications are the best examples of this. Usually, one or the other application of this nature alone will not cause a problem. Now, 4 or more Social Networks installed, especially on smartphones the most basic (up to$700, usually), will give problem because these applications use a lot of memory and processing device, disrupting its normal functioning.

Therefore, the only solution here is to uninstall the apps until you stay with a maximum of 3 of these applications. If you use an antivirus on your phone, download the number of social networking applications and e-mail for 2. Applications from memory optimization show a list of which apps are sucking up your memory, clearing all with just a click. Make good use of this application and, according to the list, delete one or two applications that are using the most memory. If you want to continue using all the applications, or you need a mobile device new, or you need to have patience to deal with the slowness and constant reboots of the device.

We also know that you may like games mobile. Some, however, need most up to date apparatus to rotate with the perfection, or may disrupt the operation of your unit. Uninstall all the games you have installed, to ensure that you are not the cause of your problems.

  • Upgrade or replacement of the operating system

This is very common for owners of models older Apple and who is doing the exchange or update of the ROM of an Android mobile phone. Windows Phone, typically, is much more stable against this problem. You just update the operating system and started having problems? Sure, your update is unstable or you did something wrong in the update.

Some devices offer an option to “rollback” or “downgrading” the unit. Others will require intermediate knowledge to advanced, to return the device to the factory settings before you redo the update operating system. If you feel unsure or you do not have much knowledge about this kind of repair, not to do it. Take your unit to an authorized technical assistance. Including, many assists and authorized retailers of several brands do the service upgrade free of charge. Because of the risk to make it at home?

We have, in our blog, some guides for installation of operating systems and ROMs. But we repeat: the responsibility for anything that goes wrong is all his. Only do if you have 200% sure of what you’re doing.

  • Battery or hardware problem

Battery discharging too fast or have changed recently the battery? In the first case, your battery may be addicted, and it is time to replace. In the second case, you may have purchased a battery fake. Spent less than$50 in the battery of your device? With 90% certainty, is counterfeit. Many brands have, in their official websites, guides to identify an original battery. Scan and remove the battery if it is counterfeit. These do not have quality control of some, and can cause accidents, in addition to, potentially, can mess up your device.

Another cause of reboots of the device and crashes and a hardware problem, or problem of the parts and components of the instrument. It is more rare, but entirely possible, especially for people who leave the cell phone in places that are very hot, very humid, and already let the phone fall many times. In this case, only the support can help you, or exchange for a mobile device new.
