Apple iPhone Keypad Resizes

On an Apple iPhone 5 when it is on but not being used (and pass code protected) the keypad for some reason 'resizes' itself and they number keys get larger, so large in fact that some keys are not visible on the screen (specifically the numbers or characters on the left of the keypad including 1, 4, 7, and *).  So if a person wants to punch-in their pass code to access their phone they cannot type all of the numbers as the numbers on the left are not visible due to the larger resizing of the keypad (and apparently the screen will not 'slide' left to right).  The only option at that point is to restart the phone which always 'right sizes' the keypad again so the phone can be accessed. Is there some way to stop the keypad from resizing the keys and making the keypad larger in that way ?   TIA ...

One of my associates just mentioned that this is just a matter of turning the Zoom function off (perhaps when the phone is in somebody's pocket the Zoom feature is inadvertently being activated).
