    My samsung galaxy S4 which was bought a week ago had no problems until today. Today, whenever I watch any youtube videos my phone reboots itself. I dont have any other apps running at the moment. How should I stop this problem?

    You might try clearing the data in the Youtube app.

    Settings > More > Application Manager > Youtube > Force Stop / Clear Cache.

    If that doesn't work, instead of clear cache, try clear data and see if that clears it up.

    I would try taking it to a public hotspot to see if you have the same problem. If not then you may need to look at your router as a possible issue.

    I would say it may be defective.. My buddy had this problem.. But he just got the phone warrantied so he wouldn't have to worry about it..
