Question Random reboots VZW S4

Any know or have an issue with their VZW S4 rebooting on completely stock rom? I have a friend and her sister both have S4's and both will reboot up to 5 times a day. It appears to be high CPU usage apps, but I am not completely sure. It happens looking in Gmail, Chrome, Message, etc. She has already replaced it once in the store.
Current
Verizon Galaxy S3 Rooted + Notta's Unofficial PA (4.0)+LK(9.4)
ASUS Transformer TF101 + US KeyBoard Dock Rooted+KatKiss (4.4)

Retired
OG HTC Incredible Rooted + CM9 + marley's kernel
HTC PPC6800
HTC PPC6700 Replaced by warrenty for 6800

Is the phone getting hot? It may be rebooting since it's overheating.
What you need to do is to understand why those applications are eating CPU. Perhaps clearing data on them will help.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock MJ7, now rooted!
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

It is not getting hot at all. If you open Chrome, click any website, and while it loads -- phone reboots. If you then wait for it to boot up, open the Gmail app -- it's possible just scrolling through email for it to freeze. It's strange really. Hell, at one point, she walked out side to send a text and it just reset. It also reset on me after I pulled the USB cable out.

This is her second phone with this issue. The first one stop charging for some reason. Her sister had the exact same issue. Is there any known apps that run in the background that may cause it?

I haven't seen anything on random reboots for the S4 so it's strange.

My rooted S4 has rebooted about 8 times. Each time I was using Chrome or a webapp (USAA) that had stopped responding.

Installed HyperDrive via Safe Strap and so far two weeks and no reboots.

I thought about doing that but it's annoying really that stock is this bad on that phone.

This one reboots that many times in just a couple of days


Side-Note: She got a second replacement. Hopefully it's better.
