How often do you reboot your Android device?
The NOOK Tablet hasn't been rebooted since I got it in February. The NOOKcolor has been rebooted a couple times in the past year.
If you include power-off cycles, about 2-3 weeks. If you're only talking about pinhole resets, I had it for almost a year before I ever did one.
(One of my grandsons' Polaroids has to be reset frequently to kickstart the WiFi.)
Never unless there is a reason. Usually the reason is a ROM upgrade or a freeze (part of running nightlies of a beta ROM).
My DroidX Smartphone under Android 2.3.4: every 48 hours, or it will get laggy and repeated Low Memory warnings logged in my logcat.
My generic tablet running ICS 4.0.3: 200+ hours and still going strong with no signs of lag yet.
You can check how long your device has been running under Settings / About / Status / Up time.
only ever had to do it after trying to upgrade to a newer version of uberoid on my old wm8650 device. never needed to on any other tab since
Never had to reboot the Sony S. I do power it down every night.
I think this counts as rebooting
About 3 times a week, I am always trying something new on my tablet that requires a reboot.
Yes it does. Don't most people power down their tablet at night?
No, I don't think that is the case. It looks like mist of us rarely reboot/power down at all. Interesting responses.
No, they put them to sleep. Like what you do with your Teddy Bear.
I don't, usually I charge it over night, but the times I'm not charging, say with my Galaxy Tab 7 plus, it only seems to drain the battery 1 to 2 percent as long as I have WiFi off.
Is that the bear you have been giving my beer to?
These are interesting responses. I never turn off the wi-fi, except on a plane, of course.
I'd prefer to not power off my devices. My Linux box has been running for 3 months with no downtime. Windows PC will reboot every couple of weeks because of updates.
My Android 2.3.4 Smartphone has resource leaks, so it must be rebooted frequently to recover.
Trying to see how long my ICS 4.0.3 tablet can run before it reboots itself (yes, that can happen you know), or I have to reboot it.
