How To Adjust Screen Sensitivity On Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8+ Plus

Sometimes the Galaxy S8+ Plus can be just a little too sensitive to touch. This can be a problem when you’re trying to operate the device but your fingers or other things are interfering with the touch screen. Fortunately, there are ways to fix this problem on the Galaxy S8+ Plus. We’ll provide a guide to help you below.

When you have an over sensitive display, your device may open apps, open the keyboard or perform other actions when you don’t want it to. When this happens, it can be frustrating to deal with.

This issue does occur more often on the Galaxy S8+ Plus because of its curved edge display. Fortunately, there are methods available to reduce the sensitivity of the display to solve the issue altogether.

Firstly, try to adjust the way you hold your phone. Make sure that your fingers or your hand aren’t being pressed against the display. By avoiding this, you’ll be stopping the device from thinking your hand is trying to interact with the display when it’s not.

Alternatively, why not try to use a smartphone case? Some cases can add an extra bezel to your device and this will create a small barrier between your hand and the actual display. Some users have reported that this has helped them to stop pressing their hands against their Galaxy S8+ Plus screen.

Some cases on the other hand may even be pressing against the display itself and this could be confusing the Galaxy S8+ Plus display. Take your current case off of your device and see if the issue is fixed.

You could also attempt to use a screen protector on your Galaxy S8+ Plus. In some cases, this can stop your display getting confused when you place your hand on your display.

Make sure you find a screen protector that can fit your Galaxy S8+ Plus.

If you’re on an outdated software version, you may want to visit the settings menu to update your Galaxy S8+ Plus. Sometimes, Samsung will release updates that address the screen sensitivity issue, so this could be the fix that works for you.
