    Just wondering if anyone else has seen this strange behaviour !!

    I had put the phone on charge, I think the last thing I had played was angry birds seasons . Anyway I went to sleep, when I woke up about 5 hours later and looked at the phone to read the time, the lock screen was displayed, but the characters and graphics were huge, about 4 or 5 times larger than usual! I was able to slide the screen up and found that the main page tiles were magnified as well, I could move them around etc. just has usual. I tried running a few apps and games, with the same effect on each occasion.

    I tried to decrease the screen size in the usual way with no success so rebooted and now it is fine.

    Its all very strange !

    Anyone else seen this ?

    The only thing I can think of for this to happen is for the screen magnifier to have been turned on in Ease of access and you have accidentally or inadvertently double tapped the screen with two fingers prior to going to sleep.
