Since Android 7.0 update, my Moto Z Force keeps freezing and then rebooting

This has started happening recently, since the latest updates occurred. I will be in the middle of entering in a Google search, or writing an Email or text, and the phone will freeze.  Then it reboots itself.  Sometimes the phone just reboots itself for no reason.

Just wondering if others are having this problem, and if so, how it can be fixed.

The last updates to my phone are

5/24/17 NCLS25.86 --11-4-6-8

5/25/17 NCL25.86-11.4

ACANFIEL and Remrawssa,

I personally wouldn't be able to function with phone issues. I rely on my phone too much. We will be happy to help you guys. After further research, it's not a known issue for any of the Moto Z line up to freeze especially with the recent software update. This could possibly application related. Let's figure this out. What kind of case or protective cover do you have on your phone? Please perform a device health check using the My Verizon. Here's a great link: View Device Health Check - MVD - Android | Verizon Wireless . Keep us posted.
