    How to tell what?
    If it is hacked?

    What makes you think it is hacked?

    You have to tell us what is going on, before we can give any advice.

    FYI, it is exceedingly rare for an Android device to be 'hacked'.

    The vast majority of people that think they have been hacked are either misinterpreting normal system apps/behavior or else they have downloaded some app that exhibits some sort of malware.

    FWIW, Google Play Store has provided tons of apps with malware of some sort or other.

    So, in order for us to help diagnose the issue, we have to know what the symptoms are first.

    Most likely it will be your Gmail account thats hacked, not your phone itself.
    If your account credentials have been compromised, then yes, you have been hacked.

    haked? do you mean hacked? or baked?

    if its baked then you can tell when your phone is burning or on fire:p

    if you mean hacked, then we need more details as has been discussed.

    just remember the more details you give us the better we can help.

    first off it is hacked not haked.

    second, just because there are things happening on your phone that seems odd does not mean you have been hacked.

    your best bet is to do a factory reset. this will wipe your phone of any bugs or issues you may have had. and even if you were actually "hacked", a reset will wipe any intrusion on your phone.
