Try to update to the latest OTA firmware, after this update my phone has not been restarted by itself.
The latest OTA firmware for me is: 2018-03-07, if f when you try to update the device the answer is "the device is already up to date" try to switch to 4G and click the "check for updates" button again, for me worked!

And remember to perform a factory reset after each update to avoid weird bugs!

Requiring factory reset on software update is really stupid thing. Think if your windows would wipe you disk totally empty on every security update. Nobody would tolerate such. Re-install all apps, change settings again. And worst of all, authentication apps (google authenicator, RSA SecurID, etc) need re-activation, and in most cases that means calling to some service desk (Amazon, Google, etc) to get things rolling again.

Updating software should be normal operation, just click of button. Factory reset means one days work for me. And for any security minded people, updates are not option, they are mandatory. If updates aren't installable easy way, they won't get installed, and device will be unsecure.

I just updated my phone with OTA, let's see how things will go.

Today my device had a reboot after just over 2000 working hours. Not sure what caused it. The wifi was off  and Duraspeed on at the time.
My device is still using ROM version 20180124. After the reboot and turning the wifi back on the OTA popped up with update 20180228 suddenly. Not sure if or when I will update my device. A working time of 2000 hours (83 days) is fine for me.

Over 1000 hours constant on. Not a single reboot in a month. Latest firmware fixes the issue. :)


1000 hours? but the latest firmware was released 10 days ago. that's not 1000 hours.

Such post is 2 months old!

If your device works good for you, you can skip updates if you want :)

Now 4 weeks 20170803_20180307-1950 firmware, and no reboots. Did not do factory reset on upgrade, and no problems.

Had no reboots for more than 2 months now after upgrading via OTA to 20180307-1950. Yesterday they suddenly came back and I had 2 reboots in only 2 days. I had the exact same situation once before.
