Razi, Are you using Samsung's original firmware ?

If you are try using a different firmware from XDA.

Hi, Razi

Has the phone taken water damage or been worked on before?

It sounds like you need to start off replacing your battery. If it is draining too fast, then it may be faulty. Low voltages from the battery can cause all kinds of other issues, like rebooting and hardware malfunctions. A customer brought a phone to me last week that would reboot when exiting speakerphone, replace the battery and everything is fine now. So replace the battery, then if the phone still has issues then, we can go from there!

Hi,Josh

I really appreciate your response, but I think it's more of a software issue,I flashed software on this device a lot of times and never has anything went wrong on it except for the last time I flashed the 4.3 update and I think I messed up a bit but everything turned out ok until two weeks when all this mess began to happen

There are 10 screws at the back of your phone. Tighten them all up to solve the wifi range issue cuz there are pressure contatcs underneeth and the screws will come loose over time.

For the restarting issue i suggest u to get a new battery and a full hardreset with new restore flash firmware.

Btw gps will likely not work on your device to right? Tigjten those 10 screws in order to get that to work
