S8 apps randomly opening

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Anyone else notice apps randomly opening after either unlocking the screen or after clearing a notification from that app? It's happened numerous times so far very similar to my s7 edge after it received nougat. I can't isolate the issue to a third party app causing this but I'm guessing it's software since it was on both phones. I'm on Tmo

My guess is that some of you are using a Samsung Gear S3.  If you are open the Samsung Gear app on your phone.  Go to settings then notifications.  Scroll down to Smart Relay and turn it off.  Your app opening problem should be solved.

I'm having this issue was well, I will do a factory reset and if that doesn't fix it, I'm going to exchange it with T-Mobile

I got tired of all the problems i was having so i took it back to tmo and got a v20. So far so good, and im going to jump to the note 8 with hopes that that is a more solid phone software wise. Only a few months to go. I just couldnt handle the vibration problems and the apps opening for me

My Note 8 is messed up with the same issue...  even my phone will not charge unless I turn the whole thing off.... seriously, is Samsung really not aware of this problem?

Be aware that some screen protectors can also cause this issue.
