Windows Phone: Users Report Random Reboots And Poor Battery Life

Microsoft is trying to get back into the smartphone game, but postings like this won’t help:

Hi, just to have a separate thread. I bought here in Prague where I am coming from black 8X on the launch day (1st of November) and so far within 3 days of use I had 2 random reboots. Device just suddenly reboots itself ending in PIN screen. Quite annoying, but not sure whether go for service or is it a software issue. Can you share if you have same experience. So far both reboots happened when in car connected to bluetooth.

Nor this:

Hi,

 I have my Nokia Lumia 920 three days now and it already became unresponsible twice. I could not start the phone or anything. Only a hard reset (all three buttons at once) started the phone again. Should I turn back the phone for a replacement?

Or this:

I’ve had my 8X for a couple of days, and it’s been having multiple reboots. Lots of people over on WPCentral seem to be having the same problem (http://forums.wpcentral.com/8x/200872.htm)

Pretty sure it’s a software problem as have seen people complaining of the Lumia 920 doing the same thing.

Seems like Microsoft rushed WP8 a bit. 

Any idea if there is a fix in the works? It needs to come quick, because these reboots are getting on my nerves.

Also, my 8X has serious problems picking up audio. Whether it’s through a call or when recording video, the device is almost unable to pickup my voice. I have to put the mic right next to my mouth and speak much louder than usual to get it to recognise me.

Anyone else with this problem?

Sounds like Windows Phone was released a bit too early. No official word from Microsoft on this front, but this is not a good start for their return to the smarphone space.
