Default Words/Text Blocky Sometimes?

Hi! Just got my phone and I love it. Noticed something annoying right off the bat. In certain games, the text will sometimes become really blocky and unreadable, like every letter is outlined bold really thick. Every object will also have a black box around them like the transparency no longer works.

I restart my device, and it helps sometimes, but other times the problem persists. I tried looking this up but haven't been successful.

I would like some advice on how to prevent this, and it'd be nice to know what's going on, too. Thanks!

Hello. I noticed this too with mine. What I have to do is go to recent apps list, by holding the home button down and swiping the affected app off that list. Then go reopen it. Seems to work for me. I don't know what causes it though, or if its a phone problem or an app problem.

Dragonvale does it to me too. . Maybe it's an app error they're working on.
