When I am typing into a TEdit last word repeats

When I start typing into a TEdit (bound to String data field) the last word gets inserted automatically
eg:
Previous state = 'Hi There'
I want to add 'H'
I get 'Hi ThereThereH'
This happens only on the Android and not when running the same on Windows
I am using Delphi Seattle FireMonkey components

  (Sender as TEdit).SelLength := 0;
  (Sender as TEdit).SelStart := Length((Sender as TEdit).Text);
end;

It's not a FMX Problem.
I'm rather sure that your problem comes from Swype Keyboard on your Smartphone.

Check if you have Swype installed on your Smartphone...

For testing you can switch back to your standard keyboard as follows:

1.) With your Keyboard shown on screen, open the notification panel by doing a swipe from the top-most part of the Display to the lower part

2.) From the notifications panel, tap on "Choose input method". You will see a list of available input method for your smartphone.

3.) From the list of input method options, for example tap on "Samsung Keyboard" to change your keyboard to standard

What you say is correct. There is slight difference that I do not have  Swype but 'Google Keyboard' so on uninstalling it the apk is working fine.
Problem is that since I am a developer I cannot ask my users to do this process on their mobiles.
Also that I have never faced this issue otherwise on my mobile.

But perhaps you can tell your users to configure their virtual keyboards and to Switch off Auto-Fill mode...

I will develop for a customer (like a cake shop) but I will never get in touch with mobile user.
