Sorry, I no idea about pop up but for wash out do this...
I had already tried that from an early post, did not change. What will plan
B be next?
Found the solution for the notification always dropping down, the volume buttons on the right side control the notification. These buttons are very sensitive and touching them while holding or resting against your body causes the pop down. Should be controlled with setup page.
Still waiting for the solutions for the problems with the photos being washed out. We also have an Ellipsis 7 and it does not have this problem.
