I got the free Dream 5G yesterday. It's fast, looks sharp, but after using it for a day I've noticed it will randomly restart itself. I cannot figure it out. I have downloaded all kinds of memory and system stability testing programs to try and find corrupt ram. But they all check out.
Is Android system WebView the culprit again?? It will be fine for hours and hours. Then I'll be laying down and hear it just randomly restart and check the system uptime, sure enough...yeah crashed.
It has the latest update. I don't wanna return the phone, but I'm about to because it's displaying symptoms of corrupt ram or graphics corruption. I'm starting to see why they're giving them away for free. I reset the phone to see if I could make it stable with just 1 Google account. Or maybe the transfer from the previous device didn't go smooth. So I reset it.
*The only clue I have is some kind of omapc message after the reboot."
It's a nice phone, but if it doesn't sort it out or someone can give me an explanation, it's gotta go, I'm not dealing with that. I've had 35 dollar cheapo boost phones that were stable as a rock. Garbage parts bin computers that could be ran for years straight without fault. So there's really no excuse for shoddy parts in today's phones.
