Samsung Galaxy S22 series has launched with several new and unique features. Though it is an amazing smartphone series, users are reporting that they are having touchscreen issues with Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 plus. It is really depressing to find out that your newly purchased smartphone is not responding to the touch correctly. Though Samsung has launched a few new updates to solve this issue temporarily, some users are still facing this issue.
Why are users facing the touchscreen issues?
This issue is mostly due to the Exynos chip, which ships with almost 50% of the devices. If you too are facing the issue, here are some troubleshooting methods that you can try to fix this issue.
Ways to fix touchscreen issues with Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus:
Method 1: Reboot the device
Sometimes, the touch screen can be interrupted by a small bug in the system. If your touchscreen has got frozen for some reason, you can try to reboot your phone once, as sometimes the issue can be solved by a simple reboot.
Method 2: Remove the screen protector
As Samsung Galaxy S22 and Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus are quite expensive smartphones, users often use screen protectors to protect the screen from damage. These protectors are usually made of glass or epoxy. If you are using a high-quality screen protector, it should not cause any problem with your touchscreen, but if not, it is advised to remove your screen protector once and check whether the issue is solved. Sometimes, screen protectors interrupt the touchscreen performance and cause unresponsive or slow inputs.
Method 3: Disable Adaptive Refresh Rate
A smooth smartphone experience is a need of users, and for providing users with that, smartphones are coming with a 120Hz refresh rate. This technology is still in the experimental phase. This is why smartphone manufacturers include an adaptive refresh rate feature within smartphones. This increases or decreases the screen refresh rate based on what you are doing on your phone. This technology can affect the touchscreen and interrupt your experience. If your screen is working with a 120Hz refresh rate and, on the other hand, your touch screen is working with 60Hz, it is quite natural to have some lagging issues. That’s why you can try enabling the standard refresh rate and disabling the adaptive refresh rate from the settings menu.
Launch the settings menu and head to the display section
Now, click on the motion smoothness option
From there, select the standard option and save the settings
Restart your smartphone to apply the settings correctly.
Method 4: Update device firmware
As Samsung manufacturers already know about this issue, they are trying to solve it with several security patches. Some have already got the update that has solved this issue. You also have to check for an update on your smartphones.
First, open your settings application and navigate to software updates
Here check whether any update is available or not
If there is any update available on your device, download and install the update
Once your phone restarts by itself, check whether the issue is solved or not.
Method 5: Calibrate Touchscreen
Though the calibration is done before shipping of every smartphone, sometimes errors can happen, and that’s why you have to try to calibrate your touchscreen to solve this issue.
First, go to your Play Store and install that touch screen calibration app
Now, follow the instructions on screen and verify the calibration
Once the test is completed, you will get a confirmation message on your phone
Restart your device to check if the issue is resolved now.
Method 6: Change screen mode
According to Samsung manufacturers, this tiny bug can be eliminated by switching the screen mode to vivid.
Open the settings menu of your smartphone and go to the display section
Here, you have to go to the screen mode section and select vivid from there.
Method 7: Change screen resolution
This issue also can be solved if you switch your screen resolution to the FHD+ option.
Launch the settings menu of your smartphone and move toward the display section
Go to the screen resolution section and select FHD+ from there.
If no method works for you, you can try to get a replacement by using your warranty card or show your phone to the nearest customer service center.
