Hi do a factory reset, that should fix your issue.

Resetting your phone will get rid of any virus.
If you have the Galaxy S8. The software will be quite out of date now. So probably you are experiencing issues with the software.
You could have a third party theme or app that's having an effect on the phone
Have you tried clearing the Partition Cache of the phone?
Does the same thing happen in safe mode.
