    For a couple of months now I get this weird overlay of other apps on my screen. It happens consistently and the app that's overlaying is one I just used, I've restarted my phone multiple times, the overlay doesn't appear on screenshots

    Derp, I don't know how I missed that in your OP -- sorry!

    Instead, can you take a picture of the screen with another device and post that? The actual image might jog the memory of other members, if they've experienced the same thing.

    You might also want to see if any currently installed apps have a screen overlay, and turn it off temporarily: https://www.howtogeek.com/271519/how...or-on-android/

    I don't have another device to take the shot

    Welcome to the forums. The overlay you get, is it always like a shadow of the previous app you used? If so, that sounds like screen retention. I remember reading similar reports with the G4. How high is your brightness level (settings - display)?

    Yeah, it sounds like a bad case of screen retention. Most likely the only real fix could be replacing the screen, but just in case you can try a couple of things. Set the brightness a bit lower (less than 50%) and make sure that 'adaptive brightness' is enabled. Also, see if the solutions included here work for you.
