I got a new phone a few days ago - mine was getting old and I was afraid it was going to die on me. The new one (GalaxyS7) doesn't want to communicate with my PC - been fiddling with it and I'm about ready to call my phone savvy daughter and have her come over to see if I'm doing something wrong, or if there's an app or whatever I haven't downloaded.

Strange, someone else told me they had a problem with their Galaxy 7.
I have the Galaxy 6 and am really happy with it....

except when ever I'm chatting with someone, and should either of us mention - presidents, Obama, Trump, etc. - it will suddenly turn itself on and say,... "I'm sorry, could you repeat that." ta dum, ta dum, ta dum...

Seriously, it really does. Turns the "listen app" on and says something to the effect of "I will look it up for you..." or " Could you repeat that?" VERY SCARY! Big brother is watching!

It is usually just sitting on the counter or table, no one is touching it. I have tried different vocal sounds, thumps etc. to see what it is that activates it but so far to no avail. So not only scary but ruddy damn annoying!

Have you tried plugging the phone into your computer? You should be able to do that with the charging cable.

Android phones have a feature similar to Siri on iPhones. If you say, "Okay, Google," that will activate the search engine. You can tell it to look up something online or in your phone, like a contact, or find a restaurant near you, etc. Maybe that's what's happening.

How are you trying to get it to communicate? The only way mine does is when I plug it in, as taxy said.

Yes, I often use that feature, especially when I'm driving.

But that's not it, I mean it is, but I can't figure out which phrase or sound does it. Don't even have to be talking, it could be just sitting on the desk and perhaps I'll thump something and it comes on... but if I try to replicate the thump - nothing.

If it comes on, still sitting alone on a table, for example, and it comes on I try to think of the exact words I or the other person was saying. We try repeating our conversation... nothing.

Funny but annoying - makes me worry if it starts looking things up when I don't notice and am not on a WiFi, it will be using my Data. That could end up costing me.
