    Hi, I have some real concerns with my S7 edge. I've had it a year and it's been fine up till now.

    Well in recent weeks i have had a keyboard glitch, where if i type something the keyboard types itself and nothing like i've tried to.

    But now it's opening Apps by itself. This afternoon the phone app opened itself and started dialing my recent calls. Then went into my text messages.

    I'm starting to worry that it's got spyware. It as if someone or something else is controlling my phone at random times.

    Any ideas?

    Welcome to the forum. Poltergeists aside, I think your screen digitizer is going loopy. Do you remember installing an app that may have started it?. I would try clearing your system cache and see if that helps. If not, a factory reset may be the next option.

    hey, thank you for the response. Yes this is my first post.. i did find something on the droid guy Galaxy S7 opening SMS on its own, touchscreen not working properly, other issues

    but appears the tests on the touch box work fine. I tried a cache clean yesterday and that didn't work as it came back again. So looking like a complete factory reset! damm i'll lose a lot of my apps and folders/customizations etc.

    You won't lose any apps you've paid for, they'll be in the Play store once you sign back in, but yeah, lots of stuff to recover. One thing I do, make screenshots of each screen you have, then back them up outside the phone. Helps to remember what you need to redownload.
