Even when my phone is left unattended, strange things keep happening... e.g. "S Finder" keeps popping up on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

I have cleaned the screen. How do I tell if I have a virus / PUP?
Or a hardware fault? (e.g. Maybe some water got into the phone??)

As it happens I have a backup Galaxy Note 3. No, if I have a hardware fault, how do I transfer all my data to the other phone?

Many thanks

If that is the only thing happening it is probably just some setting. Does not sound like a virus but you could give it a spin with Malwarebites. As for transferring your data you could back up in the cloud or on a SD card
