Screen Touch Problem On Samsung Galaxy S2

I have a small problem with my galaxy s2 (i9100-europe). The problem is that when i try and press on certain parts of the screen, it doesn't work o. 0 but if i move my finger really quickly it will complete the test. Someone told me something like "you need to use a different charger", but i don't think thats the problem. What do you think? I also updated the phone to ics (official) and still the same thing.

Samsung Galaxy S Best Multi Touch Screen

Multi-touch is a deciding factor for a lot of people when considering their next mobile has not been known to be the best in this area. Most notable, the nexus one, has been perceived as having a subpar multi-touch display. Until know we?Ve always heard that you have to choose between having a beautiful display or a very accurate multi-touch display. Samsung has brought them both together in the galaxy s.

The screen on the galaxy s is manufactured by a company named atmel. The technical name for this display is the atmel maxtouch, and this screen can handle up to 16 points simultaneously. It has a response time of 7 milliseconds which is 2-3 times faster than current multi-touch displays. This screen is expected to drastically limit or even eliminate miss touches, aka having your hand on the edge of the screen unknowingly.

I am more and more impressed with this phone with every new tidbit of information that gets uncovered. This is probably the most unrated device of all time. If the ?Hummingbird? Gpu lives up to its rumors, which it most likely will since we?Ve seen it in action, this will probably be the best handset of any kind on the market. Samsung is really good at making processors so the 1ghz in this phone could pack in a few surprises as well. I can?T wait to see this device stateside, in the mean time checkout the touch screen demo performed by frandroid.

Samsung Galaxy S Touch Screen Lost Its Sensitivity

I bought an android a week and a half ago, a samsung galaxy s. The touchscreen was really sensitive in the beginning, but now it isn't. I noticed it became slower when i upgraded from 2. 1 to 2. 2. My friend told me that android phones start to work really slow after a few days. Is that true?

Samsung Epic 4g - Sometimes Screen Is Unresponsive To Touch

I've noticed lately that my sometimes my screen is unresponsive to touch. The hard touch buttons on the bottom work, so in order to get my screen respond to touch, i have to turn the screen off then on. Sometimes, its not the whole screen, but a particular area, for example while texting, the "send" button doesn't work or it might be like the letter "h" or something. So i have to change to portrait or reboot my phone for it to work.

I tried hard resetting my phone, still same issues. Anyone else have this problem? Any solutions? Could it be because of an app or live wallpaper or something. Obviously the 30 days are up now (bought 8/31) so can i take to the sprint store or i have to contact samsung.

Htc - Fixing The G1 Touch Screen

My mom gave me her old g1 today. The touch screen didn't work so i told her about it, and she said she dropped it in the frying pan when it had a thin layer of hot oil on it; now the touch screen doesn't work (what i'm thinking is that since touch screens are basically heat sensors, the oil kind of overloaded/fried it).

Is there any way i can fix it? I highly doubt my mom bought any insurance for the phone or whatever. Or can i just take it to the t-mobile store and get it fixed or something?

Samsung Galaxy S Lock Screen Stays On

The other day i fell asleep with my vibrant in my pocket woke up 3 hrs later and it was dead. Had no idea why, id only had it less than 24 hrs, and it was almost fully charged b4 i passed out. Well sitting here with the phone on my desk today i got a text, didnt look at the text, and the screen stays on the "sweep screen to unlock" screen fully lit up until i do something with it. I just got a text and its goin on 14 minutes of that screen. Problem fixed as to why it died, but why is it doin that? Is it written into the program, is my phone jacked up, is there a setting? Cuz ive checked all those. My screen is supposed to time out after 1 min which it does if im doing something or have just done somethin and set it down. Thanks in advance for the help and input.

Washed Out Screen On Samsung Galaxy Nexus

My beautiful galaxy nexus decided not to update the baseband; the 4g connection would frequently drop and my phone would restart 8-10 times a day. Read about someone in a similar boat who called vzw and they told him it was defective and sent him a new one. So i called and they sent me a new certified pre-owned, that actually has the updated radios pre-installed.

Now the problem: when i place the cert. Pre-owned next to my original g-nexus, the replacement has a washed out screen in comparison, and frankly the hd looks like doodoo. What gives? Either i have to have a beautiful screen with poor reception, or great reception with a *** screen?

P. S replacement was from vzw not assurion.

Htc Evo 4g Touch Screen Problem

Htc evo 4g touch screen problems. When you lay the phone on a flat surface and use the touch screen, this is what happens. This doesn't happen if the phone is charging or you're holding the phone while operating the touch screen. The phone on the left is the htc evo 4g, which has the problem. The phone on the right is an htc hero (cdma), without the problem, for comparison.

Is your phone like this?

1. Lie the phone on a flat surface without anything connected to it, such as a usb cable.

2. Use the touch screen with one hand.

Htc Nexus One Multi Touch Screen

I've had my n1 for a month now and it's the best phone i've ever used. It's extremely snappy, no matter how much ram i have remaining (according to advanced task killer). I've tried cyanogenmod 5. 0. X on it and it was snappy although battery life wasn't that great. Now, i am running the 2. 2 test build which is just as fast as cyanogen but with tons more battery life (i get about 36 hours with light to moderate usage)

With any phone, however, it isn't always perfect.

I downloaded multitouch visible test to experiment with the touch capability. When crossing axes, the touch points get inverted which isn't good. If you have a finger on a screen already, and attempt to touch a different point, the second point will end up being leveled with the first point. That's why you aren't able to hold shift on the keyboard and attempt to type a capitalized "o". This cannot be fixed with keyboard replacements out there in the market.

This is also the reason why you cannot type as fast on the on-screen keyboard. When you type, you have to make sure your first finger is lifted off the screen before you touch the screen with your second finger. Otherwise, the 2nd finger may not be recognized

Edit: here's a video show-casing this. It's my only gripe with the phone.

App To Disable Touch Screen For Baby

I want an app where i can disable touch screen while a baby has it in hand. Example: we driving in the car, baby goes crazy, i open an youtube with some cartoons, give the phone to the baby she touches the screen, starts screaming, i have to take the phone, get the youtube going again, give it to the baby, 30 seconds later, same thing again. Need an app where for example, where you run the antibaby app, then open youtube or any other baby watch only app, activate the antibaby app by for example pushing the volume up to disable the touch screen, later volume down to disable the antibaby app to go back to normal. Something like that.

Samsung Galaxy Ace Blank Screen (gt-s5830d)

My friend, the owner of this phone, came to school today and the screen was blank and the phone was unusable. When the lock button is pressed, the screen lights up black, and the buttons light up, which suggests that the phone is still thinking. I tried getting recovery mode (home+volume down+power) but it still had no image on the screen. I have no idea what he did to the phone. Any ideas?

Htc Nexus One Multi Touch Screen Glitches

I'm sure people have heard that some of the nexus one phones seem to have a little screen glitch that happens sometimes. Where occasionally it will start not working right where you touch the screen. A simple sleep and wake up of the screen with the top button is what fixes this minor problem. And it doesn't happen very often but it does happen.

I saw a few video's regarding this multi-touch thing. Verely-flawed/

It's actually not correct though, because that app in general was the problem and wasn't working right on the n1. There's other multi-touch apps and testing things that have shown that the nexus one's screen does in fact work fine on the multi-touch, but the droid's seemed a little more responsive.

I've heard that there was a thing that helped this on the nexus one. Has anyone heard anything about that? I've also read it's a software thing that will be solved in the next update, but i've heard of many things that should be fixed in updates that are not. So i just thought i'd mention it.

I'll try to find the video that showed the newer mt app that showed the n1 working fine

Motorola Cliq/motoblur - Edge Of Screen Touch

So i didn't really realize this until the latest update said one of the issues they had corrected was edge of screen sensitivity. Then i thought about it some more and i swear the "end call" button (which i always had issues with sensitivity) has moved from being at the bottom of the screen to above the num pad, mute and speaker. And now i'm having difficulties when i try to press the num pad, mute and/or speaker (since they've moved to the bottom)is anyone else having this issues? 

The fact that they've "moved" the end call button rather then truly fix the edge of screen issues leads me to believe this is a hardware issue with regards to touch sensitivity around the edges of the screen? Can anyone else comment?I have one of the original cliq's do the newer one's have the same issue?

Suggestions / Experience With Screen Protectors - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I've always used invisible shields for all of my devices; however on the nexus, i've been having some issues. Being that the phone is all screen with no outside bevel, i continually have issues with the protector being pushed up. I'm on my third and now looking at a fourth!

The biggest problem i had at first was using a case. The edges of the case push the protector up, so i got rid of the case because of this. Since then though, just regular usage (storing in my pocket), i have issues with the corners of the screen coming up. I just put my third one on a week ago and just now, the corner came up because i had something in my pocket that pushed it up. So i'm curious, has anyone had better success with other products? I'm a huge fan of zagg; however i'm open for suggestions.

3g Turn Off When Phone Screen Is Locked - Samsung Galaxy Ace

I have a samsung galaxy ace. I have turned on 3g and it is working but as soon as my screen locks it goes off and i do not receive emails or whatsapp messages. When i pick up my phone and unlock the screen, the 3g symbol is not there but a few seconds later it appears and my emails and whatsapp messages come through. This is very annoying i want my 3g to be on all the time and emails and messages to come through immediately without me having to touch my phone. Can anyone help?

I have had the phone for 2 weeks and 3g was working fine until yesterday. I started using wifi for the first time yesterday at the office and i noticed this problem with the 3g yesterday evening. I definitely have my 3g turned on. As it works but only when the screen is unlocked.

Seidio Screen Guard / Protector For Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Got an email from seidio this morning about these. They seem to be a new product.

Find the highest level of clarity and a reduction in fingerprints with our newest screen protector.

Due to its quality and durability, our screen protector does not scratch or tear easily and our customers find themselves replacing their device before purchasing another screen protector.

- Resists marks and smudges with advanced technology that reduces the appearance of fingerprints

- High definition (hd) quality ensures that optical clarity is maintained

- Retains your touch screen's sensitivity

- Covers the front face of your device, including the screen and the proximity sensor with cut-outs for the home button, speaker and camera

- Good surface hardness with a 3h hardness rating and only 0. 1 mm thin

Certainly sounds interesting although i'm a little put off by the way they made the cutout for the speaker, sensor, camera. Also the email newsletter has a typo in it and if you read the description, the galaxy doesn't have a home button. I have had seidio protectors in the past and they weren't bad at all. If you intent to try these, let us know how you like them.
