It also asks me to re-login to my Google account for the phone. Almost like the phone resets with each restart.
I tried to hard reset, but when i turn the phone back on, apps still show up. Is there any way to reset it to be like out of the box new? Just wanting help. Would really not like to go back to my Blackberry Storm.
Not a good sign... I've seen quite a few people with similar symptoms. It usually means the storage/partitions on the phone have become corrupted. Things may only get progressively worse.
Things you can try are running a factory image, or rooting and hoping you can get a custom rom to run a little smoother. Rooting is a little riskier just because of the amount of steps that are required now, and involves flashing the phone a few times.
And honestly, in the cases we have seen here, no one has been able to fix it.
Let me know if you would like more info on flashing a factory image or rooting
