overlapping homescreens

JUMP TO SOLUTION

ok, actually I have an A20.  When I am looking at the home screen, the displays in the upper left and right hand corner (such as the service bars, time, wifi and battery percentage) are like overlapping with a second set of info., like  8:14 is overlapped with the actual time 12:51 and the battery,  45%, is overlapped 89%.  When I start to swipe the screen, one of the sets, the correct info, will swipe and the wrong info is left in place. 

The next issue, is that the screen is too sensitive to my face when talking and will hold, hang up the call. etc. It wont stay blacked out (deactive) for more than a minute or so.

Is your background a screenshot, this could include the system information when the screenshot was taken

 

Press the lock button after answering or placing a call, then your phone won't respond to touching your dislplay during a call.

 

Hope this helps

omg. How embarrassing. Yes. It was. lol.  ok. New phone, so I don't know where the lock button is. If it's just the single button on the side of the phone, that only works for a few minutes.

Yes the button on the side power/lock. When i lock my screen during a call nothing i can tap on my screen will turn it back on during that call. Are you getting a notification during the call that wakes up your screen maybe.

Im not sure ive never had that problem.

the only other thing i can think of is lift to wake

Settings>advanced features>motion and gestures>lift to wake

 

But that shouldn't wake your phone unless you have it on a flat surface first.

oh, a notification. I didn't get that part of your question at first. But no, no notifications. Unless it's just one unanswered one so my phone just keeps nagging me about it. IDK.
