Hey @handelj!


Can you follow @KAPABLE-K's suggestions? Also, if there are any plastic films on the phone be sure to remove those as well.


If the problem persists, you can always contact Google for some additional support! 


Hello @handelj,


That's odd to have the same problem on 3 phones, are you using a case? If so take it off.


Try starting the phone in safe mode see here for instructions if the problem goes away then it could be an app on the phone that is causing the problem.


If it is an app you would either have to uninstall them one by one until the problem goes away or factory reset the phone and set it up as a new phone do not do a restore then install the apps one by one. Make sure you backup your data before doing any factory reset.
