How To Improve Touchscreen Sensitivity On Galaxy S20

There are screen protectors that can affect your phone’s screen sensitivity and make you miss some taps. It’s not really a serious problem but can be annoying at times. Good thing your Galaxy S20 allows you to change the touchscreen sensitivity. 

So if you recently bought a screen protector and got it installed on your phone, or if you need to use your device with gloves on, then you should consider improving the touch sensitivity of your device. 

In this post, I will guide you on how to do that. The procedure is pretty easy and straightforward, so continue reading as we may be able to help.

Improving Galaxy S20 Touchscreen Sensitivity

Time Needed : 2 minutes

If you feel like the sensitivity of your display isn’t as good as it was before, then here’s what you need to do:

  1. Launch Settings. 

    You can pull the app drawer up and tap the Settings icon, or you can simply swipe down from the top of the screen to pull the notification panel down and tap the gear icon.

  • Galaxy S20

And that’s basically what you need to do to improve the touchscreen sensitivity of your galaxy s20. You’ll notice that the display is now more responsive than it was before, even with the new screen protector or when you put on your gloves. 

On the other hand, if the touch sensitivity of your phone’s display hasn’t improved, then there can be a problem with the firmware. What you have to do next is to create a backup of your important files and data, and then factory reset your phone. This will bring everything back to factory defaults. 

Basically, you would need to know if the problem gets fixed with a reset because if not, then it’s a possible hardware issue and you may need to bring your phone to the tech. 

I hope that this simple tutorial has been able to help you.
