Smartphones, in general, not to mention the mighty Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, should be fast. When your tactile commands don’t operate as fast as they should, you get angry. The same goes for when they operate faster than you expect and you start doing accidental things because you’ve pressed certain icons or menus unintentionally. Regardless of how you look at it, screen sensitivity can be a problem and adjusting it is often even more stressful.
If you’re dealing with it right now, don’t forget that you’re not the only one! And to spare you from all the sufferance, don’t forget that there’s no special setting for screen sensitivity either. But while you cannot fix it with the tap of a menu, there are still plenty of options for you to try out.
Is the screen sensitivity issue on your Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus so stressful that you’re thinking to give up on it for good?
Hold On To That Phone, Literally…
OK, so you think we’ve made a wordplay – you say you want to give up on it and we say you hold on to it. But this is no joke, as the subtitle from above is trying to suggest. The way you grab and hold your smartphone can have a direct effect on its screen, literally. Maybe you’re touching the edge of the display without even realizing it. So, what seems to be an oversensitivity issue is actually pure, unintended negligence from your side.
It might sound annoying and we bet it also is, but the good news in all that is that you can fix the problem without having to throw away the device. Just pay some extra attention to how you handle the phone and try to give up on those habits that are making you to accidentally touch the display. No biggie, you see?
Or Give Up On That Smartphone Case, Instead…
This isn’t just to advise you to give up on something, but rather to show you that the current case you’re using can be the culprit. It’s all about the design and, just like we’ve seen users who needed to throw away the smartphone case, we also saw users who actually had to put a smartphone case to their oversensitive Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus.
The take away from here is that cases do have an impact on your screen and the only way to test it is by using the phone with and without a case, sometimes even with a different case than the one you’ve been using. You’ll see the differences yourself and you’ll be able to take an informed decision based on your personal experience.
Have You Also Been Using Some Kind Of Screen Protector?
Just like with the smartphone cases, a Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus might be too (little) sensitive depending on whether it has a screen protector foil or not. So, if you think that the screen is too sensitive, try using one and if it responds too slow, try giving up on the one you currently have. Again, practice will tell you what to do.
Finally, Consider Operating System And Its Updates
Truth to be told, there are little instances when some OS update messes things up. And if it does, chances are it’s not going to be about the sensitivity of your display. Consequently, it only makes sense that if you run an update, you might get plenty of improvements. As reports go, the TouchWiz technology is often targeted by these updates. If nothing worked to help you adjust screen sensitivity on the Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus, install the latest version of operating system that you have at hand.
