Default S4 Restarts when openning Camera???


Sometimes when I open my camera app it lags a bit then the phone restarts itself...

Anyone else experience this?

Very annoying especially when there a great picture opportunity!

Thanks for any help.

Yes, if the phone has been on awhile and I open the camera it will normally restart on me. If I open it again right after the restart it is normally good. I've had restart issues using the flashlight app also, when attempting to use LED as a light there is a often a long delay, then it restarts.
