Default Stock N4 Randomly restarting

As the title says my nexus 4 just started rebooting out of no where, while one the phone, in an app, doesnt really seem to have a pateren.. I believe it started when she got the 4.4 update and now has 4.4.2. anyone els experience this issue? I think im going to try a factory reset to see if that helps. any input would be appreciated.

Are you rooted? If so and you have a custom recovery, I would do the factory reset via the recovery, that way you should still have your apps. If not, then you will lose everything and have to start from scratch.

Could be due to one of two things or a combination of things. One is a hardware issue, which I hope isn't the case. I would check the apps first before resetting, then do the reset. If it continues, try re-flashing the stock image. If after that and you're still having problems, going to 4.4, or 4.3 since it started with 4.4.

If you flash stock, it WILL wipe out everything unfortunately. If you at the least had an unlocked bootloader, you could have flashed the ota.zip and kept everything intact.
