    Default Random Screen Zoom/ Blue Border

    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.

    im recently getting a similar small magnification box with blue border on my Galaxy Note 3 when trying to text select in moon reader, my browser and other pages ...incredible annoying since it adds further steps to text selection and study its not the whole screen like a triple tap but a small zoom box and yes turned Accessibility/Magnification gestures off and on repeatedly but no change:/ ..... only recently happened using 4.4.2
