Glad that it worked out. Seems that you were previously aniPhone user. With Android you get more control and with that comes more ways to shoot yourself sometimes in the foot Smiley Happy

How horrible is horrible? I have to charge my phone towards 4-5pm or I wont make it till 11pm. But I use my phone a lot. I read email 2-3 hours a day on my phone.

That's about all the longer my phone lasts. My last phone (iPhone 6 Plus) lasted all day & a little into the next with heavy use. It was AMAZING!

If it is so amazing why did you leave it? It's not outdated yet, so why go to Samsung for a phone? Everyone knows Samsung hasn't made anything good since the S5 and Note 4.

I have a new Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge phone and the screen overlay message kept popping up and no matter what I did it would not go away.  I do not have the Twilight application; I don't even know what that is.  I read people's complaints on Google and what they did to fix it. The fix for me was to delete CleanMaster and the moment I deleted it the screen overlay problem stopped completely.

Linda is absolutely right. Even I don't own any such app. Useless solution. Nothing happens even after you carry on deleting apps after apps. This bloody Screen Overlay Detected never ever stops bothering you. I curse myself to but such a costly trash..

I do too have this problem on my 2017 A7 phone, I disabled every app including system app which appear n settings "Apps that can appear on top"

 

But this issue still bugs me.

 

Strangely this is happening on a Chrome browser ... I'm trying to click on a link which suppose to open a PDF  on that page.

 

Totally ridiculous, previously too I had faced this but got that worked by disabling app that can appear top.

 

But not this time..it's hopeless n useless feature of Android 6.x

 

Even enanling developer options didn't help..

 

Any help on this is appreciated..thanjs

I used to have CleanMaster, but don't any longer. I wonder if there are remnants of it in my phone, since Android software never seems to fully uninstall ANYTHING!!!
