    I've been curious, how often do you intentionally restart your phone?

    Maybe every couple of days just to freshen things up or if my rom gets buggy :)

    I turn it off every night, sometimes I charge it to 100% before I turn it off and sometimes I plug it in while I sleep.

    I have cron set to reboot mine every Monday and Friday.
    I also reboot after making any significant changes.

    Only when it starts doing something stupid.

    Only for updates, to make a nandroid or to check something in recovery. If I had to guess the number of times in the past year I've had to restart my phone to fix something, I'd say maybe 10 or 12.

    Mine has a bug in the last OTA meaning it reboots at random (it's even present in custom ROMs too). It normally reboots once every 2 days or something, sometimes more frequently. It's been fixed in 4.3, but I've not had time to flash a 4.3 ROM.

    Because of that, I can't remember the last time I intentionally rebooted. It's fairly infrequently though.

    Every 24-48 hours I reboot my phone just to freshen it up.

    Whenever the battery gets to 5% I switch it off & replace the battery with a fully charged one to keep them in good condition, otherwise I don't

    The old Strat, I would probably reboot every three or so days, mostly because it would start acting stupid!

    With the new Moto G, well, it's still being tested on how well it runs! So far so good.

    Only when I'm tinkering with things.

    Modern devices shouldn't need to be rebooted every x hours/days

    Mon. thru Fri., every night. Weekends never, since I use it as an alarm clock.

    Sorta the same. "If" I use it as an alarm then it needs to be left on and will stay on until I don't need it as an alarm when I'll turn it off when I go to bed. So, it could be on for 16 hours, or it could be on for a couple of weeks.

    Absolutely agree. Even Windows doesn't need rebooting often these days, Linux (including stock Android) even less so.

    Of course if people flash dodgy ROMs then all bets are off... :)

    Never. Only when an OS update makes it necessary.

    After any updates I'll restart it.

    Or on the few occasions where it has started to lag or act buggy.

    Or if I don't want to be reached I'll turn it off, which eventually requires turning it back on.

    I only reboot mine after it starts getting stupid. Other than that it pretty much stays on.

    only time mine ever restarts is if I let the power levels get critical and it automatically shuts down

    Same here. I used to have to restart my old Gingerbread phone occasionally when it started acting funky.

    When I've made a system mod, or in order to make a nand backup (the two usually go together). So in practice, every few weeks on average, unless I'm experimenting.

    When I rooted my phone, I had to restart it weekly as the performance degrades over the course of a week. Before I rooted it and after I unrooted it, I only reboot once a month. Normally, if I noticed something is not behaving properly, that is one of the things I do. More often than not, it was some other issue.

    This past month, I had to reboot a few times due to the new 4.3 update on my SGS3. I had a few issues and was trying to reboot it to fix them. It turned out I just had to reinstall some apps and that's it. It has been a few weeks since I've rebooted my phone now.
