    I have an issue with my keyboard while typing on my S7. I will be typing say "The quick brown fox jumped" but as I am typing this is what will end up tying as I hit certain keys "The qqqquickly browbrown fox jumpjumjumped". It seems to happen with random keys or random words will just be as if I had copy pasted a word or set of characters while typing when all I did was type. Autoreplace is not active though I do have predictive text. Are there hidden hotkey features that are enabled in some menu that I can't find?

    I don't even know how to describe this issue concisely enough to do a google search for the solution so I came here. Maybe someone will know? It is very annoying having to hit backspace to clear the unwanted characters that just appear for no reason while I am typing.

    This issue has been occuring for numerous versions of Android including on my S4 and my current S7 which is now running Oreo.

    Edit: Since there doesnt seem to be even a way to reply to a post on this crap forum, I will edit my original post. It does not occur on safe mode. I don't have any screen protector.

    Does this happen in Safe Mode as well? https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-28008. Do you have a screen protector on? If so, try taking it off.

    If it doesn't happen in Safe Mode, that indicates that something you installed is probably causing the interference. Unfortunately, it can be a tedious process to pinpoint the culprit app further -- you may have to uninstall apps one by one until the problem goes away.

    In regards to your problems with the forum -- are you on the website, or are you using one of the apps? Make sure you're logged into your Mobile Nations/Android Central account before trying to reply to a thread. If you're not logged in, you can't reply.
