Some users are reporting about random restarts on their Galaxy S8 smartphones

Samsung‘s latest flagship i.e. the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus are undoubtedly the best smartphones which we have seen so far. They look absolutely stunning with that infinity display goodness and all that. However, ever since the day when the devices started shipping to users, most people have started complaining about various issues with their smartphones. Firstly we saw how these devices are showing signs of Red tints on the display for some users. And now we have yet another complaint.

According to the new reports which we have, few users of the Galaxy S8 smartphones are facing random restarts. Yes, few buyers of the device have now complained on both XDA Developers and the company’s official forum saying that their devices are randomly getting restarted. According to the reports it looks like this issue is happening on both Galaxy S8 as well as the Galaxy S8 Plus and hence it is hard to predict as to what exactly is causing the issue right now.

Most people are pointing towards the biometrics for being responsible for this. Apparently having both the fingerprint reader and the face recognition feature enabled at the same time locks up the phone. Do make a note that this is not yet confirmed officially but is being predicted as one of the cause for this issue. Also if you head over to the source link, then you will find out there are a lot of opinions on this as to why this could be happening and hence we suggest you stay patient until we have some confirmation from the company directly.

One of the user reported that when we got in touch with Samsung regarding this, he was asked to get a replacement unit from the retailer of the device. Well, we just hope that this issue is not something very serious and we will be seeing a fix for this very soon. But for the time being, Samsung has not yet officially addressed this issue and hence we will have to wait for any further communication from their end.
