I know,but sometimes it might affect the touchscreen and you will see some strange things.

Re: Phone is closing/opening apps on its own

I am currently having this same issue on my mobile phone.

Its opening and closing apps, swiping side ways, making things larger and smaller and changing my settings.

I do not have 'task killer' or 'master cleaner' and a screen protector on my mobile.

I have owned this phone for nearly 2 years.

I have noticed that the screen will stop doing this when i push down and hold my finger in the middle of the screen which allows me to use it by using another finger.

 

Please help me to fix this, I love this phone and am not keen to be replacing it with another.

 

Thanks

Re: Phone is closing/opening apps on its own

I think the problems is the screen. Either the screen is simply broken or moisture has gotten into the phone and reacts on the screen. I had my phone replaced. 

 

Have you had your phone in water recently? Or perhaps you had it repaired? Because after they repair the phone it usually isn't waterproof anymore, sadly.

Re: Phone is closing/opening apps on its own

I also have this problem on a new phone, its 3 months old. No screen protector or anti virus. It started a few days ago with a dead patch on the touch screen when using Chrome. Now today its like its posessed, opening apps and swiping through things, zooming in and out. I have it next to me right now after restarting it and its opening apps ive never even used before. 

I am really regretting switching from iphone to android, this is so annoying!

ETA: im actually on an Xperia XZ but google brought me to this thread, apologies!
