How To Increase Touch Sensitivity On Google Pixel 7

After installing a new screen protector and your Google Pixel 7’s touch screen is no longer as responsive as it once was, then there’s something you need to enable to fix the touch sensitivity problem. 

Estimate Cost : 0

Time Needed : 2 minutes

You don’t need to remove the protector just to improve the sensitivity. In just a flick of the switch, you can rest assured that your Pixel 7 will become as responsive, if not more. 
So here’s what you need to do to increase the touch sensitivity of your Pixel 7: 

  1. Pull down the Quick Settings panel.

    You can do that by swiping down from the top of the screen twice. The first swipe will pull down the Notification panel, and the second one is for the Quick Settings panel. 

  2. With Quick Settings pulled down, tap the gear icon at the bottom of the screen.

    Doing so will open the Settings app on your phone which allows you to change some features. 

  3. Scroll down a bit to find Display and once found, tap on it.

    This will show you the options that allow you to change some settings for your phone’s screen. 

  4. Scroll down to find the option Increase touch sensitivity.

    You have to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the screen to find it. 

  5. To enable the feature, tap the switch next to it.

    And just like that, whatever problems you have with your phone’s touch screen will be resolved.

It has also improved the responsiveness of the screen so that it will work properly even if you’re wearing gloves. 

Some beach goers often put their phones inside a zip lock, even if that’s the case, the device will still respond as long as the Increase touch sensitivity feature is enabled. 

We hope that this guide can help you.
