Why are all my previous apps faded into the background?

I have not found an answer to my problem searching forums. I was FaceTiming my friend, and when I hung up, the FaceTime screen was still there, I can see the buttons, but I can't press them. The FaceTime screen is faded into the background. Then a website had an ad at the bottom, now there's a faded ad at the bottom of my phone too. I can still use it, I'm typing this on that phone, but it's very annoying. I have turned off and on, reset using home and off button, the color settings are fine, I've cleared my recent app list.This happened after I dropped it while charging, but it barely hit the floor and I caught it with the cord. Any suggestions?

Yep. Sounds like LCD cable got yanked internally. The iPhone 5C LCD cable gets very easily damaged from any sort of drop.

Seems like you got pretty unlucky in this case as it was only yanked and the screen went bad.

What can I do about that? Just deal with it?

Pretty much. To get rid of those display imperfections the screen would need to be replaced.

Delete and re download? Never heard of greyed out apps. Then again, the first thing that came to mind is a lack of storage

The visual of the apps are faded everywhere. Like while typing this, I see the layout of the app. Like the little box in the corner of FaceTime, it's still there, but faded. It's gotten worse. it's getting hard for me to see.

Can you select the apps, and use them? And everything is fine. It's just grey in color? Can you give us a picture?

Kinda sounds like a bad LCD...
