Early issues reported across HTC and Nokia handsets.

Having arrived on the market earlier this month, Windows Phone 8 devices are currently experiencing a variety of teething problems, with HTC and Nokia handset users reporting rebooting issues and low battery life.

A number of HTC 8X users have been left frustrated by their mobile randomly rebooting, while Nokia Lumia 920 users have also reported reboots and freezes, along with poor battery life. These battery issues have led some users to wipe their mobile in an attempt to achieve a quick solution. However, rather than yield the intended result, this move has only served to compound their misery, leaving some devices stuck on a Nokia splash screen.

In separate statements to The Verge, both Nokia and HTC stated that they are aware of the rebooting issues. "‘We are working with Microsoft to investigate these reports. We will provide an update as soon as more information is available," said a Nokia spokesperson, with HTC confirming that it is currently looking into the problem at call centres and within its labs.

Earlier this year, Nokia's Lumia 800 handset was also blighted with a variety of battery issues, leading to the manufacturer being inundated with complaints.
