So here's the issue. As the thread title states, I have a Droid Mini running stock 4.4 KitKat, no root and the bootloader's locked. I've done no modifications. I've only had the phone for about 2-3 months tops. I'm not exactly sure when it started, but here lately, I've had a couple issues, one being in any app I'm in or even if I just leave my phone unlocked at the home screen, there are frequent times when the close animation happens and the screen goes black as if you pressed the recent apps button or opened a link or notification but nothing else opens, and then snaps right back to whatever app was open or the home screen. In example, I could be typing a text message to someone, then suddenly, the close animation happens and the screen goes black, then suddenly snaps back to the text I'm sending. And I know it's nothing I'm doing, because it's happened with me simply watching a YouTube video both in browser and the YouTube app with my hands off the phone and the close and snap back happened, which gets very annoying because it pauses the video I'm watching or messes up my typing in a text.
If I could get a video demonstration of it to help make my point, I would, but it just happens randomly for a split second.
The second issue is, there are times when I get a notification in the notification bar but when I swipe it down and press the notification, the notification bar goes away but whatever app the notification is from doesn't open (i.e. I receive a text and it notifies me in the notification bar, so I swipe the notification bar down and press the notification, but the notification bar goes away and the text doesn't open).
I really don't feel like doing a factory reset so any help would be much appreciated.
