Although this issue is pretty annoying, that doesn’t mean you have to change your phone with something else. There are some things that you can try that hopefully can help you to deal with this issue.

First, you need to adjust the way you grip or handling your phone. Make sure that your hand or your finger doesn’t hover on top of the screen or at least on the edge of the screen. It is not always easy but it may worth a try.

Using a specific smartphone case is another good idea to try. Some cases, especially the one with wider frame and raised bezel will help to keep your hand from touching the screen when you don’t want it to.

In the other hand, using a case will make the screen far more sensitive. If you already use one, you can try to release it and see whether it makes any difference or not.

  1. I installed a glass display protector and I am having problems getting anything done now. Texting is a nightmare and playing games I can’t select things in many places.

    • I too have this issue. It is maddening to send a text, call a person, or reply to an email. Why is there not a setting for this? Come on!
