Restarting issue in android devices is not new and there are number of reasons why this is happening. As a matter of fact, for the past several months lots of Galaxy S5 users complaining about such issue, wherein according to them that their device starts to restart frequently after installing the new system. So, if the problem started after the update, then, obviously this is may be just a minor software problem and you can fix it on your own through performing simple troubleshooting procedures on your phone.

But since, we are not sure what triggered the problem the best thing that you can do is to rule-out first the issue by doing a step by step method until you can figure it out the real problem is and resolve it. So, if you have a Galaxy S5 and bugged by this type of problem, then, we suggest you to read this post for it might help you get rid the issue. Here's how:

Step 1: Try booting in Safe Mode
If the issue started after the update there is a chance that a culprit is causing the issue that resulted the device to reboots on its own. Through booting in this mode, all apps that you downloaded in Google Play Store will be disabled temporarily and only the pre-installed ones left running in the system. So, if your phone successfully boots up while in this mode, then there's an app you need to find and uninstall from the system to resolve this problem. Follow these steps to boot in Safe mode:

  • Turn off the device.
  • Press and hold the Power key.
  • When the 'Samsung Galaxy S5' appears on the screen, release the Power key.
  • Immediately after releasing the Power key, press and hold the Volume Down key.
  • Continue to hold down the Volume Down key until the device finishes restarting.
  • Safe Mode will display in the lower left corner of the screen.
  • Release the Volume Down key when you see Safe mode.
However, while in this mode and your phone still reboots, proceed to the next method.

Step 2: Wipe the System Cache Partition
In this procedure, we will try to reset the cache directory of the device. In other words, we have to delete all files and data stored in the cache partition so that newer ones will be created for all of it may be corrupted during the update process and could no longer be loaded to the firmware that resulted your phone to restart from time to time. To eliminate that suspicion, just do these steps:

  • Turn off the device.
  • Press and hold the Power, Home and Volume Up buttons at the same time.
  • When the 'Samsung logo appears' release the Power key but continue to press and hold the Volume Up and Home keys.
  • When the android system recovery screen appears, release the Volume Up and Home keys.
  • Using the Volume Down key highlight 'wipe cache partition.'
  • Press the Power key to select it.
Step 3: Perform Master reset
However, if it's still reboots after wiping the cache partition the last thing that you can do is to do a reset. This will remove all culprits in the firmware and delete all files and data saved on your phone once you do this method. But the good thing is, if this is just a firmware problem this procedure is very effective and would surely resolve the issue. But before you follow the steps, be sure to create first a backup or transfer everything to your SD card or Personal computer so that you can easily restore once the issue is fixed. Here's how:
  • Turn off the device.
  • Press and hold the Volume Up, Home and Power keys at the same time.
  • When the phone vibrates, release the Power key but continue to press and hold the Home and Volume Up keys.
  • When the Android System recovery screen appears, release the Volume Up and Home keys.
  • Press the Volume Down key several times to highlight 'wipe data/ factory reset.'
  • Press the Power button to select.
  • Press the Volume Down key until 'Yes-delete all user data' is highlighted.
  • Press the Power key to to select and start the master reset.
  • When the master reset is complete, 'Reboot system now' is highlighted.
  • Press the Power key to restart the device.
