Most people don’t reboot their phone very often.

Personally, the only time my phone restarts is when it runs out of battery life away from the charger or when something catastrophic happens. Neither of those things happens very often.

But should people like me and you reboot their Android devices more frequently? Or is it an absolutely pointless function that does nothing to help Android?

Let’s find out!

Reasons to restart:

-Installing important Android updates (not just app updates)

-You’ve encountered a serious error, slowdown problem, or other issue

-Your phone feels laggy and slow and you think restarting will help
