Another reason may be the new windows updates itself!sometimes the updates produce malfunctions!which usually may be corrected by the next coming update patch!I hope this would be helpful.
This was a great phone for it's time....just got burried by android and iOS. It's EOL now, or will be by the end if 2019 if the rumors are true. Sad that windows phone never really caught on.
I am having problem with my front camera. Anytime I try to take picture,the phone restart itself. And most of my apps like Facebook, messenger, Skype,Twitter and others does not work. Any help?

Rest in peace Lumia series. I was considering getting either this, or the Note 4 for a while. (I went with the Note 4, cuz y'know, Windows phone amirite)
They were/are beautiful phones running Windows. This OS is more fluid than android that is really only for children in their 20-s! Why you need to install full of apps full of viruses and updates almost everyday when you don`t even need them on a phone?! What interests somebody had to destroy this OS?
