    Hello Ricardo.
    I am experiencing the same issue, rebooting, with a Samsung Tab S 8.4. Do you have any article about this tablet?
    Could you please try to help me to diagnose what is wrong with my tablet?

    Thank you very much.

      I’ve figured it out what it was: my tablet was glitching for a while, mostly when the battery reached 30%. Then, even at 70%. After that, it started also to reboot. I opened the tabler, unplugged the battery, cleaned it and plugged it back. It is working again. No more glitching or rebooting.
