My phone quite often restarts when in my pocket, it's a Samsung M31.

It happens when I squat down and the power button gets pressed, I only notice it when I look at the phone later and find it half way through restarting, waiting for me to enter the password for the SIM.

I have the thing locked with face recognition, pattern or fingerprint but it can be turned off without any need for these - just a long press on the power button. I've not found any way to prevent this and am wondering if anyone has found a way round it? It's annoying because the phone won't work until it's fully restarted and if I don't realise the thing is restarting it's effectively still switched off until I spot it.
