My cell phone is a Samsung's SM-G110B/DS Kit Kat, and I found the developer options and "by mistake" I selected one of the overlays. The problem is that the overlay has a bigger resolution than what my screen supports, and it doesn't let me touch the screen (Overlay #1 1280x720).

How can I turn this overlay off?

P.S.: I turned it off and on again and it didn't work, I took off the battery, pinched it, tapped on it several times... nothing changes, that overlay is still there and doesn't let me touch the screen.

  • Usually a reboot will fix this issue, because that setting gets reset every boot. – GiantTree Jul 1 '15 at 12:27
  • @GiantTree do you mean turn it off and turn it on again, or reset it, because I turned it off and on again and it didn't work, I took off the battery... nothing changes, that overlay is still there and doesn't let me touch the screen – Kyle Jul 1 '15 at 12:39
  • You should have added that to your question. No you don't need to reset. Try to pinch it, like zooming out. It scales down the size of your simulated display and allows you to move it out of the way. – GiantTree Jul 1 '15 at 12:52
  • @GiantTree Sorry for that, I'll add it immediately, I've tried to pinch it, but it doesn't work, it stays there static :( – Kyle Jul 1 '15 at 13:09
