Samsung users have reported that their Galaxy S8 devices are randomly rebooting.

According to Android Authority, users took to Samsung's US community forums and XDA Developer forums to report their handsets restarted several times a day if in use, idle or when charging.

Though Samsung has not yet commented on the issue, users have suggested on the forums that the issue could stem from either the Galaxy S8's Always on Display feature, the lock screen or using a microSD card. Some users have suggested removing the microSD card as a temporary fix.

Furthermore and shortly after the release, Samsung fans complained about the device having a red-tinted screen issue. Samsung released two software updates to solve the problem.
