Today I received a Galaxy A5 2017 with this dreadful 'feature'. I tried both Emergency mode and triple clicking Home button to no avail. Called Samsung support Netherlands. This helpfull, very friendly lady couldn't help me out. If you tried above suggestions and it doesn't work for you either, there is another way I would presume this is the same on other models. In your home screen do the following; 1. Swipe with 2 fingers from the top down, the menu with settings, wifi, sound, bluetooth etc pops up; 2. Press the Settings button (gear-icon in the top right of your screen); 3. Go to Accessibility; 4. Scroll down with 2 fingers, go to the 'TalkBack' option; 5. Disable this; All should be in order now. @Samsung; Fix this issue ASAP. This has been a pain in the butt for so much users for way too long, it dates back from 2017. It renders the telephone unusable for the majority of the users. That's not something you expect of a device we depend on every day. And seriously, restoring factory defaults on a perfectly working system with control disorders ? Surely, everyone should make back-ups of electronics containing personal data. But it still it only a work-around, and definitely not a long-term solution. Also, when you're team is on it. Stop putting crapware and non-removable apps in the Android-system. Preferably, use a stock Android system like Nokia does !
