I noticed that phone restarted several times per night when it's charging. I think it started after I upgraded it to Windows 10. I understand that Windows update can require restarting, but not so often I think. During the day phone is working fine without restarting.

Question is: something wrong with phone or it's okay?


Your phone is fine I may say. The phone restarts automatically after a update.

In order to make this process comfortable Windows restarts and installs updates only when you don't use your phone. It automatically determines the time your phone is not being used. Your phone must have set this during night.

You can change this in Settings.

  1. Go to Settings->Updates & Security->Phone Update.
  2. Select Advanced Options.
  3. There will be an option Choose how updates are installed.
  4. You can set this to Notify to schedule restart if you don't want your phone to restart automatically.
  • I have automatic in this option, so it restarts when phone is't using. I just wonder why these updated installed so often.

  • no, not insider. I was insider for Win 10, but this is just usual upgrade from Win 8.1 mobile. I understand updates once a week, but almost every day, it looks strange.

  • @Alex That's really strange. I recieve updates once/twice in a month on normal builds.There could be some other issues. Please check if your phone is installing the same update over and over again. I had that problem once. If so, hard reset is the only option.

    @Alex Unfortunately there is no logs or history. You should check it manually when your phone is downloading updates. You can do this by viewing the update settings page as soon your phone is connected to a network. Note the update number, install it and again check for updates. If the same update appears again you have to hard reset your phone.
