    What phone do you have? Likely it's nothing serious. For example: You may have accidentally activated voice commands. I do that sometimes.

    A smartphone? Well you are in an Android Forum, which all Androids are "Smartphones".

    Can you elaborate on which smartphone you have? Brand and name of phone?
  5. I think this kind of situation belongs to the hardware problem.

    If you have anti-virus on there, then you have not been hacked.

    If your phone is going "pppppp.....pppppp...", which is a vibration sound, when you turn the phone off, that's normal! It could also be happening when you get a notification and you have the phone set to vibrate on notification.

    Edit: Maybe it turned off because the battery needs charging.

    Hope that helps!

    And off-topic, I hate forums that criticise the OP for *blank* before actually answering the question (or at all for that matter).

    Nice contribution to the thread.

    Meanwhile there's a member here with a query as to a device issue. If we're to plaster the "troll" name around, perhaps it can be attached to those making strange, off topic accusations toward the OP.

    To the OP:

    If your device is powered down, and you can hear crackling sounds, there is a likelihood of moisture inside of the case. I'd suggest removing the battery cover and immersing the device in raw dry rice over night, which can displace and absorb most of the moisture.

    Give it about 12 hours, then try powering the device back up.

  9. I agree with above, it's likely crash shutting down due to a broken app or error. If your battery isn't low, then try deleting some apps and reinstalling them, in rare occasions I've had that be the issue.
