    Had a technical support call from the FiL today. He's using my old LG android phone which he's had for a while. A couple of weeks ago it started playing various audio adverts - including when the phone is just sitting on a table. He found this thread which describes the issue - several people have reported it but no one has a good fix.

    Motor industry adverts seems a common theme.

    Has anyone on here come across this or have any suggestions?

    Thanks

    I had the same thing happen on my previous Xperia Z5c I passed down to my daughter.
    In my case it was just finding the dodgy app serving the adverts, this was more trial and error than scientific although I was lucky in that the Xperia launcher was able to sort the app drawer by installed date, I only had to uninstall 2 apps before finding the culprit, it was a crappy advert ridden game at fault on my daughter's phone.
