    So, idk what happened, but quite a few functions have gone off now. I'm using the Moto x play on android marshmallow, and my main problem atm is the home button.

    It's softkeys, so on-screen buttons, and the rest still work except for the home button. The only way it can function as a home button is if overview is opened and then home is pressed, otherwise it's completely useless.

    As well as that, I can't get any notifications in the drawer or anything, and that includes permanent notifications like that of MacroDroid or even music apps, nothing shows up. Plus, I can't pull down the drawer further to get the glance settings or whatever they're called, as it just stops when I get to the (always empty) drawer.

    My almost final problem is that the lock screen is completely bypassed when taking the phone out of standby, I have a pattern lock set but it just skips that and takes me straight into the phone.

    Finally, I would have factory reset my phone by now but guess what?
    That's broken too! I can't tap factory reset in the settings. That's also a big issue. And there are probably more problems that I haven't found yet

    So, of anyone has any help that would be appreciated, as I haven't found any problem similar to this anywhere else.

    Note that this is a moto x play, and so the battery can't be removed, and also I have tried rebooting it multiple times and gone into safe mode a couple of times too. Nothing has worked as of yet.

    Issue with whatever ROM you have. If you haven't played around with root, it's not your fault. If you don't know what I mean, then you haven't done it. Steps to fix:
    1. Boot into recovery. From there, factory reset the phone. I cannot tell you the exact process, so you must google it.
    2. If that worked, you are done. If not, flash a custom ROM. Every phone is different, so I can't give much help.
    3. If that worked, it's fixed, and you get a newer version of Android as a side effect. Awesome!
    If not, it's a hardware issue. Sorry, you may need a new phone in this case.
