    After a factory reset my note 3 would show a blue box around the top left app icon. It shows no matter which screen Im on, and disappears the second I touch the screen.

    It shows consistently after opening the android central app and viewing the forums then closing...is this from the app? Or is it a problem with my device?
    My phone is not rooted btw.

    Oo-er. See if this helps. You'll need to have enabled Developer Options.

    Thank you sir...I've tried that with no luck....the option was already unchecked...what's driving me crazy is that it looks like the selection box that appears when you use an external keyboard or a controller to navigate the phone...I've reset the phone once again with the same issue...and I can't replicate it with any other app other than the Android Central app...and only when I go to forums and then participated threads from the drop down menu, choose the first topic, then press the home button!!!

    I'm going crazy lol

    I am wondering if it is a conflicting cache problem. Try clearing your cache in recovery: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...2-s3-tab2.html

    Follow the procedure for the S3.

    Just tried it...but problem still persists

    What could it possibly be? And why does it only occur under those weird circumstances? Doesn't make any sense!!

    Honestly I am not sure. Perhaps calling Samsung and see if they have any ideas.
