    I use this app. Depending upon the type of crash it may not have enough time to save a copy of the relevant log file(s) though.

    I think you must have something seriously wrong with your tablet, is it running a custom ROM, overheating or something?
    I've been running the app you suggested for over a week, some heavy ingress use over two weekends and the usual iPlayer, browser, email and games throughout the week. Still not had a single reported crash or reboot on mine. GF's is the same, crash count =0

    Maybe you somehow lucked out and got a good one, have you had the screen separation issue, have seen it on two so far, one from japan and my second one.

    No, not at all. I bought my girlfriend a 32gig one for Christmas as well, she uses hers at work and streams iPlayer all evening. Not seen those problems either.

    i have similar reboot issuues with my phone android 4 is imo worse than 2 for phones and much worse than 3 on tablets. Im fed up of it refusing to connect to my car radio or staying connected when the car is turned off and out of range but the phone still thinks is connected and wont let go or reconnect until i turn bluetooth off and on. ive had it with android tablet has been replaced by an x86 win tab and phone will be replaced with a win8 phone or a nokia brick that just works when contracts up

    I did wonder that. Since I posted that screenshot my Nexus 10 has crashed a total of 41 times and when I unlocked it yesterday I found it has done some sort of partial factory reset - all of my apps were there plus various things I had downloaded to /sdcard, but almost all settings had been completely wiped out. I guess the last reboot must have corrupted something?

    I'm on the stock 4.2.1 ROM at the moment, although I might switch to a different ROM (CM 10.1m or Paranoid Android) to see if that helps. It must be a software issue because there are a lot of people reporting the same problem as me...

    They are both Nexus 7 on 4.2.1.
    I'd be inclined to send it back as faulty.
    At school we had a Toshiba android machine that kept crashing and rebooting, we send that back to tosh and a couple of weeks later they sent it back repaired. I guess it is easy to mix up a faulty hardware with a software bug if you don't have anything to compare it to.

    I'll give that a try as it's starting to get ridiculous.
