    So, I had a little experiment to see if I could hit 1000 hours without rebooting and I was able to. Some thoughts...

    1. Unless I forgot how a freshly rebooted phone feels, it feels no different
    2. I did have a few random reboot type actions but the counter never reset. Not sure what it was about:thinking:
    3. Browser loves to crash or just lock up which I then had to force close and restart it. I blame this on an online game I play that is not optimized very well as I have to restart chrome on my work computer after a time as it eats all the memory.

    Other then that, phone works perfectly

    the random reboots may have just been UI crash/reloads. Where the phone is actually still running, but the UI resets itself.

    I think a lot of people confuse this with "random reboots". They seem to last like 4 seconds before coming back on, no way thats a full boot haha

    So, I finally rebooted last night after posting this and it does seem to feel a bit snappier. Not sure if it's my imagination though.

    All in all, the phone and Android do a good job for my needs

    I don't know if I've ever hit 1000 hours or not (because I don't pay that much attention) but I'm currently at 674. I hardly ever reboot mine.

    I hardly ever reboot mine either. It rebooted itself a few days ago when aI had navigation running and I was on the phone via bluetooth. That's the only time my reboots on it's own, and YES, it's a FULL reboot, not a UI crash.
