    I've had my galaxy s6 for about 6 months now and have been very happy with it. Until this weird thing popped up.
    I can drag it around the screen a bit, thought I could get rid of it like a facebook chat bubble, but that didn't work. When I tap it, this dark filter thing goes across the screen, covering everything but the very top of my phone, and anywhere I tap in that filter isn't responsive. Once that happens I have to re-start the phone. Since it looks like a remote I looked up "smart remote s6" but it looked completely different from my thing. All I really want is to just stop this thing popping up, which it now does whenever I boot up the phone

    I'm having the same problem right now. Just popped up today. Any help is greatly appreciated. Also when in the dark filter mode after clicking the icon you cannot click on anything or type.
