    Hmm it could be a bad unit. If you're stock the only issues I can see for sudden reboots are heat or issue with the stock system. If heat isn't the issue and if you don't want to root then I would recommend getting another replacement.

    Does it do a reboot or does it just close the app/game that you're using?

    hmm that's weird. Normally it will either force close the app entirely or it will reboot the device. Maybe someone will chime in with a similar experience.

    Yeah, I am doubting the phone is actually "shutting down" and it goes through the entire reboot process, because if it did - the game would be gone. This sounds like a screen timeout to me too. I would go to the home screen, then tap the Menu icon at the bottom (looks like 3 lines), and choose <Settings>. Once there, select <Display>, then in the middle of the list you'll see <Screen Timeout>. Tap that and look at what is already selected, such as 30 seconds, 2 minutes, etc. Does that timeframe relate to the same time it takes for the games to go black?

    Most games either prevent the screen from shutting down themselves or have a choice to do so. If this one doesn't then you'll have to push that timeout to <Never timeout>, but you'll also have to remember to either manually shut the screen off with the power button or go back into settings and revert to the previous timeout limit.

    Anyone ever get an answer on this? Mine does the same thing timeout is set to 2min but will blackout after 5sec, 15, 20 ect... very random timings and very intermittent. Battery was at 77f once when i noticed it happen.

    Sounds like in pocket protection kicking in because the sensors were inadvertently covered. Solved by turning off if not wanted or being more careful to not trigger it.
