Accelerometer sensor stops working

Noticed that accelerometer sensor stops working from time to time and phone restart is required to get it working again. So things like counting steps in Google Fit does not work. Anybody else experience this issue? Wonder if it's buggy Android 8.0

    Had similar issue on Nokia 6, no gyro/accelerometer, no proximity and no ambient light sensors. Also mine won’t come back to live aven after restarting or even factory reset the phone and upgrading the OS.
    Does any one “mostly talking to you NOKIA/SMD” had the solution yet?!

    I contacted, but Support was useless as usual, just standard copy/paste from manuals. My issue with accelerometer resolved after upgrade to Pie. Though Pie added a bunch of another problems, lol.

    I had exactly the same issue:
    gyro sensor and ambient light sensor didn't work anymore.
    Solution was quit easy:
    - deactivate gyro sensor
    - deactivate ambient light sensor
    - switch phone off/on
    - activate gyro sensor
    - activate ambient light sensor
