Hello. I currently have a ZTE ZMAX CHAMP smartphone, but I had the same issue on a Phillip's smartphone (I got rid of that one because of this same issue-thought it was phone specific). When I try to save/allow some basic things, I get this message most of the time (but not all of the time): "Screen overlay detected. To change this setting, you first have to turn off the screen overlay settings>apps."
A couple recent instances:
1.) When opening Google News: Allow Google News & & Weather to access this device's location.
2.) When I download a Zedge notification: Allow Zedge to access photos, media, and files on your device?
When I click to allow, I get the above message. I've seen alot of posts on the web for this, but the settings don't match up with mine. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
