Hi. Occasionally, and with no reason, apps will open on the screen. Often different ones. I close them and then another one will open. This has happened a few times and I can't trace a reason. Anyone have any ideas on what may be causing it and any solutions please? I spoke to HTC UK but no reason could be given. This is my second M8 and both have displayed this strange behaviour. I love it, don't get me wrong, but it's a strange and random phenomena.

Need a little more info. As this is your second phone with the same behaviour it possibly suggests something you have done (unless you have two random phones)

Is the phone completely stock?

Is it:

S-Off
Unlocked
Rooted
Custom Recovery
Apps installed

Please give as much info as possible if you want people to help

Yes, I have a flip case. An original I bought extra from HTC store. It also happened on the case that came with the phone. The issues occur with or with out the case.

Hi. Thanks for the reply and advice. It's Vodafone UK and has apps loaded (around 100). I set both phones up as new, i.e. not used the ransfer tool. I've done a factory reset on both phones. The rom is as it was out of the box (stock?). It's my second identical phone. I'm wondering if its an app causing the behaviour.

I would do a factory reset and leave the apps off for a period and watch the phone. If it fails to happen install one at a time and leave a period between them

Laborious I know but at least you will find the offender. If it happens straight after the factory reset then its your phone
