Thanks for the sharing the info people, much appreciated.
I got an email confirming i placed a replacement order etc. I also got instructions on how to send the defective device back once i recieve my replacement device.
Now the issue i have is intermittent. It rebooted twice this morning with 5 mins. All i did is used my pattern unlock to unlock the phone to get to the home screen.
Once i did, i pressed the app draw icon to access my apps. It didnt respond and the phone rebooted. This happend twice.
I left my phone alone for 2 hours now and at the moment it seems fine but i don't know how long it will last.
I wonder how google will test to replicate this issue?
