HOW TO FIX SMARTPHONE TOUCHSCREEN GLITCHES IN 7 WAYS
The first iPhone was launched in 2007, and probably the only brand incorporating a touchscreen in its phones then. With time, Google brought the touchscreen feature to the Android mobile phone so far that we can hardly imagine our life without this. Well, if the problem is not severe, a few DIY steps can help! Read this article to uncover the top-7 ways to inhibit the touchscreen issue on your Android flagship phones.
1.RESTART IN A SAFE MODE
There are numerous useful third-party apps today with features better than the phone's default apps. Although for this, you need to compromise on its corrupt aspect that can disrupt its functioning. Hence, it’s a good idea to restart your phone in Safe Mode, which limits the activity of third-party apps and runs only the basic system apps. Even though the issue persists, the problem is definitely not with these apps. To enter safe mode, press and hold the power button & volume button together. Once the power menu pops up, press and hold the power icon until the Safe Mode appears.
2. RUN A SYSTEM DIAGNOSTIC
Every Android phone is equipped with a few diagnostic tools to analyze its occurring issue. And same can be done for touchscreen as well. In this, you need to enter certain codes on the dialer app. To run the touchscreen check on the Samsung model, enter *#0*# and run the requisite test. If the issue is in another model, simply Google the test code for that manufacturer.
3.IF ITSWATER DAMAGE? LET IT DRY!
At times, your smartphone might get into contact with water accidentally, and that could be the reason for the irresponsive touchscreen. The first thing you need to do is immediately switch off the phone and let it dry for some time. For this, it's recommended to put your smartphone in a silica packet instead of availing the phone repairing facility.
4.TURN OFF THE DEVELOPER OPTION
In the modern flagship phones, you may see an option called Developer Options for advanced users. This allows users to customize the settings accordingly instead of putting the default settings ON, although at the cost of the phone’s malfunctioning. So, it's required to turn off this feature by going to “System Option” in the Settings app. Then tap on Developer Option and toggle it off (if it’s on).
Lower RAM could also be the reason behind the lagging Android interface causing the irresponsive touchscreen; especially when you are using too much Android space or high-end apps. We recommend clearing its memory and upgrading the RAM first. Then remove the unnecessary apps!
6.TURN OFF THE AMBIENT DISPLAY
The ambient display is very much like the Moto Display feature, which brings the important notifications in a black & white format on the screen after the smartphone is locked. It’s a pity useful feature to save battery yet can hinder the touchscreen functioning. To turn it off, head over to Settings > Display> Toggle off “Ambient Display”.
7.USE MULTI-TOUCH APP
At times, the irresponsive touchscreen can be caused by the faulty display digitizer that features 5 to 10 multi-touch points. Install the multi-touch tester app to see if these points are working adequately (the focal point of the touch screen).
The main job of the touchscreen feature is to control the functioning of the smartphone. However, the same control can be achieved through Google Voice Access too, which aims at low-vision people and lets you control your phone through voice. In such a case, we recommended turning it on and letting the experience unfold to the innovative gateway.
