Did you try updating it?
I'd say one of the above. Though any shielding issue, bad cap or any number of things, could make the phone sensitive to external noise.

I had a S4 that would occasionally reboot or in a few instances just power down for no apparent reason. I have an S7 edge now and no problems of any kind yet.
