Question: Problems with Magnifier on iPhone 8

I need to use the Magnifier feature now and then -- mainly on tiny-print menus in dimly-lit restaurants, because I'm old -- and it's started doing some strange and annoying things.

Simple repro: Pick up phone, press home button 3 times *quickly*. Sometimes it works. Sometimes you get a blank black screen. Sometimes you get an empty screen with the lockscreen image. Sometimes the home button stops working. Sometimes the sleep/wake button stops working.

And, once things start going wrong, restarting the phone is the only way to fix it. (Fortunately that still works.)

Anyone else seeing similar problems?

iPhone 8, iOS 11.1, null
