While Windows Phone 8 is one of the smoothest mobile operating system experiences to date, there seems to be a niggling reboot issue for Windows Phone 8-powered devices. Apparently, owners of the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Windows Phone 8X from HTC seem to be affected far more than the others, as their devices do seem to reset themselves for no apparent reason. Random reboots can be one of the more irritating experiences, and I can definitely vouch for that. Imagine doing your work halfway only to have your smartphone reboot on you without saving your previous work, and unlike a desktop software, it is not that easy to recover (if and where possible) your work. Not only that, modern day smartphones have impossibly long startup times compared to the old school Nokias.

Random reboots are not the only issues plaguing these Windows Phone 8 smartphones, but there have been some users who did mention that they have experienced email synchronization issues as well, where the accounts remain perpetually stuck in a synchronization loop – definitely one of the major ways of draining your smartphone’s battery to nothing in a short while.
