    I started having the issue about 3 days ago. I've also noticed that my key press responses seem to lag.

    One second I'll be typing a text and the next, the screen zooms in/ letters get very large and the blue border appears. If I tilt the phone to go to/ from portrait or landscape view everything returns to normal. I noticed today that it happens when using the calculator too,

    I haven't changed any settings aside from the GPS/ Location settings. I doubt that would cause this problem anyway. Everything has been great with the phone for the last 3 weeks until this problem started.

    Looks like I found the problem....

    Someone in another forum suggested "Is Settings -> Accessibility -> Magnification gestures enabled?"

    That was turned on for some reason. Don't know how or why. After I turned it off, the problem went away.

    Yes, but magnification gestures are very useful. So the real solution would be how to undo the blue rectangle and magnification - not prevent it in the first place....

    Indeed, but with a 5.5 inch screen I don't feel the need to "Zoom in" either on purpose or accidentally...

    If you triple tap the screen will revert to Normal. It is a triple tap that zooms it in also.

    I too had this while magnification was turned off, the problem was being caused by a copy to clipboard app. I uninstalled it, problem solved

    I have a Galaxy Note 3, and I too had been having this blue screen appear on my screen. And I would try so hard to get it to go away. Without luck, I wad beginning to feel so frustrated with this. It would usually happen when I was texting a message to someone. When I would use just my fingers to text I would be tapping the screen on my "installed Swift Keyboard" , so I wad thinking it was in the settings of my keyboard. Many times I've wasted, looking for this answer. I then decided that seems that my typing speed is so fast, I would just always use the pen that came with my phone, or I would use the speak to text. But then when I stated to use the pen and got quick at typing with that, the blue screen started to appear again... "ughhh, you have got to be kidding me!"
    This morning, it happened again! But this time, I want typing on the keyboard. So that telling me, is not the keyboard. So I did this search, 😲 "why the hell does a blue Trace line appear on my cell phone and then zoom!" 😳
    Bam! 😆 I got this forum! You have answered the Crazy mystery question is been having for months now.
    Thank you 👴 #1 Phljjs👌 You have saved me so much time.....

    Thanks for the hint on what the blue border meant! I left the zoom on but triple tapped to turn off the behavior.

    Thanks very much for this thread. My dad always manages to activate these features and I will have no idea why his phone will be doing what it's doing. Threads like this make my life easier.
