    I have ASUS Zenfone 2 which I have been using for ~ 1 year now. All of a sudden my phone started acting weird as if it was controlled by someone else. I open an App and it starts opening tabs by itself. Text message has the same problem, I can't even use the keyboard as intended. I did the factory reset but the same problem continues. Is there a fix for this issue?

    Welcome to Android Central! Did this happen immediately after the factory reset, or only after all apps were reinstalled? If the latter, then try booting into Safe Mode to see if it's a 3rd party app that's causing the problem: https://www.asus.com/support/faq/1005163

    Also, does this only happen when the phone is plugged in and charging, or when unplugged as well?

    This issue started all of a sudden. I thought my phone had a virus so I performed factory reset but the same issue continues. Per your suggestion, I booted the phone in safe mode but no luck, it's doing the same weird thing.

    Any other suggestions?

    Besides the odd behavior, is there any other reason why you think you might have a virus? Were you getting unwanted popups? Have you installed any apps from places other than Google Play Store?

    Chances are that this isn't malware, but rather some problem with the screen/digitizer. I would have suggested wiping the cache partition, but the factory reset would have done that as well. Is the phone still under warranty from ASUS?

    I don't know if this is due to a virus or a problem with screen/digitizer. As you said Cache partition should have been done during factory reset, other than that I what could be the reason?

    Phone is not under warranty. Any suggestions on how to fix this issue or time to get rid of the phone?
