Default non-corona virus? Android phone

So, I looked at my phone, (moto x4) and the notification that I'm connected to USB had pooped up. Which is weird, because the phone wasn't connected to anything.

I suppose it could just be a glitch. Maybe it's unhappy that I've been washing it, for instance. But I wondered if anyone knows whether that might be a virus.

I turned off the phone. I guess I'll either do a factory reset or just turn it on again, depending on what I can learn about this symptom.

Factory reset sounds smart.

My X-4 started giving problems lately with both the usb port and the headphone jack, so I decided to upgrade. Google-fi offered me $10 on the trade-in? Whatever! So I ebayed for a $200 pixel-3, and now I'm happy, the end.

Hopefully you can do the same.

Yeah, I thought my phone was dying, because it became really had to charge it. But then I pulled a LOT of lint out of the USB port and it perked up again.

I'm trying to think what i lose with a factory reset. Not all that much, these days. I probably lose the configuration of the screens, which would be a nuisance, but not an enormous problem to restore. But most stuff is stored at Google these days, not on the physical phone.
