3. Contact problems
These involve two aspects:

4. Battery issue
Long-term use and/or over-discharge will shorten phone battery life and cause crashes and automatic reboots. Poor contact between battery and the connector can lead to the same result.
• Contact the after-sales and change the original battery.
• Wipe the connecting part on the battery connector by alcohol while the connecting part on the battery by eraser, then charge it.

Viruses, malware and ads are increasing with the prolific availability of apps. This can lead to instability and crashes.
• Identify problematic apps by checking app reviews first.

• If lack of storage space leads to continual problems, contact the support team for aftersales service or approach maintenance shops for help.
8. Root problem
Important files could be deleted by mistake after getting root or following failed rooting attempt(s).
