I am using Moto E for the past 8 months and its one of the best budget phone.Before 6 months, Moto E got the Android KitKat 4.4.4 OTA update.After few months of use on Android KitKat 4.4.4 I have started facing some minor problem.But at the last ended with a major problem that is Moto E is getting restarted automatically by itself.At first it restarted automatically like once a day and it randomly increased.Also, I have contacted the customer service about the problem and they said to follow some instructions.They asked to factory reset the phone but still the problem continued.But I have found the phone is resting whenever I use the power button on Moto E.Sometimes when I lock the mobile or when I try to take the screenshot the phone gets restarted.But it doesn’t happen every time only few time while using the Power button.At last found, that it is a software issue with Motorola Moto E running Android KitKat 4.4.4.

Step 3: Now click on Enable option and activate the App.

Step 5: To lock the device open the notification bar and click the TAP TAP APP widget.
