Your smartphone could well be your most valuable device (especially considering it goes everywhere you do…even the bathroom). It’s undoubtedly important, so we’re giving you the opportunity to outfit it with some truly premium accessories.

Dear Lifehacker, The other morning I switched my Samsung Galaxy S6 phone on after charging it overnight. About one minute later, it switched itself off and rebooted without me touching it.

I’ve tried switching data/WiFi off and fiddling around with different settings but nothing seems to work. Please help!
