/ How to improve phone screen sensitivity?
All very nice except that the screen seems reluctant to accept input on certain keys / areas e.g. the 'n' on the virtual keyboard is tricky to enter at times.
Any thoughts on anything that can be done to make it better:
- take phone apart and give it a really good clean and dust (there's some dust under the screen)?
- download another virtual keyboard and see if this is any better?
Or are smartphone screens sometimes not perfect and I'll just have to accept that the 'n' and occasionally others take multiple keystrokes to enter?
Thanks for any help.
I bought a week old phone and didn't use it for several months. When I did I discovered one corner wouldn't take inputs at all. As it was a popular model I could buy a replacement screen from ebay and fitted it myself. It was a bit tricky though.
Is it easy to update the firmware, what about the big clean option, any use?
Just as a trial, lick the screen and then try to type. Report back if there is a difference and this will help point to the correct fix.
My wife has real trouble using her phone because she has very dry fingers. She has to constantly lick her fingers to get anything to work. That said, not too wet or it doesn't work either.
Try dipping it in de-ionised water.....
It might not help but it'll make it taste nicer when you come around to licking it.
I have a htc sensation and the screen has always had a spot where the T button is when the keyboard is displayed. I should have sent it back when it was new but it was such a hassle getting delivery that I couldn't handle the stress a second time around.
I have also found that the screen is becoming less sensitive as it gets older (now 13 months old) although this could be due to the amount of crap accumulating behind it.
You can download an app that tests the screen but I've never got around to doing so.
Just found out that the HTC warranty is 2 yrs so I called them and am sending it back because of the ridiculous amount of crap that has somehow got inside the screen.
Why don't you try telling it that you preferred fingering your old ZX-81? Tell it that it just can't satisfy your needs.
Yes the whole thing. That way it'll be totally fukked and you can get a new phone with a better screen.
* This may not fix the screen but it'll make you forget about the problem for a while.
