HTC Incredible :: Screen Is Too Sensitive

The touch screen on my Incredible is way too sensitive for me. Maybe I need to develop a lighter touch when scrolling but what I'd really like is a way to adjust the sensitivity.Update problem solved. I was unintentionally tapping when I started my scrolls. Now I'm careful not to let my finger bounce and all is well.

Samsung Moment :: During Phone Calls Screen Too Sensitive Face Touching Screen
anyone have this problem w/ the moment whereby your face touches the screen and causes accidentally pressed keys, things to move on screen, etc. associated w/ touching the screen? I think I remember this happening once or twice on the moment but admittedly, I don't use it much so not sure if the lock screen was on, screen was off, etc. Just looking to see if anyone if affected by this or if it's a known problem.

Android :: How To Get Screen All Dark But Still Touch Sensitive
I want to get the display as dark as possible but I also want the display to remain touch sensitive.So I can't turn the display off, otherwise it wouldn't react to touch anymore. And I use WindowManager. LayoutParams. screenBrightness to get the screen as dark as possible. And I put a layer colored black over the entire display.That works, but at night one sees that the screen is still quite strongly illuminated.Does anybody have an idea of how to get the screen even darker?

HTC Hero : Touch Screen Seems To Be Not Completely Sensitive
Just 3 days ago my Hero started to not work properly. Touch screen (in the bottom, keys 7-8-9 of numerical keyboard) seems to be not completely sensitive and sometimes it doesn't work at all in that zone.

The curious thing is the phone starts working properly after using it for a couple of hours. If the device is in stand-by mode for a long time (i.e. during the night) the issue occurs. Has anyone had a similar problem or know of a solution?

HTC Incredible :: Touch Sensitive Buttons Do Not Light Up Sometimes
This seems to be an issue that I may have just noticed. Sometimes when I turn on my phone the touch sensitive buttons do not light up. They may eventually light up but it would take a while. Also sometimes they light up immediately with no problem. Is anyone else having this same issue?

LG Eve :: Home/Back Button Too Sensitive
If I go to use the camera or am not careful in other apps, my hand touches one of these keys and I am exited from the app I was using. Is there any kind of skin to put on top of this until that would make these buttons available when I actually need to press them? Or is there some setting in the menus to disable them, or configure them?

Samsung Moment :: Notification Bar Is No Longer Sensitive To Touch
For some reason my notification bar is no longer sensitive to touch. All the notifications are showing up but when I go to pull the screen down it no longer recognizes this action or that I'm touching it. Every once in a while it will work again for no reason that I can tell.

When I try and press on the bar it usually thinks I'm pressing whatever widget is at the top near it. I've tried moving finger positioning but to no avail.

Motorola Droid 2 :: Battery Draining Quickly / Touchscreen Very Sensitive
The problems I'm having:
- The battery is draining wicked fast.
- The phone is ridiculously hot like the radio is working overtime.
- And the screen is so sensitive that when swiping home screens the damn thing tries to go back, or skips a screen. In the browser if I scroll up or down with just one finger it tends to try to pinch zoom. And on the home screen when trying to press and hold an app it double clicks and opens it. The on screen keyboard many times just blips out when swyping trying to type one word and it ends up being 4-5.

So I tried turning the phone off and back on. No difference. Did the OTA update. No difference. I didn't even install any apps yet. But I did remove everything from my home screens to hopefully fix the battery life. No difference. I like the keyboard (miles ahead of the D1) and the fact swype comes stock, if it would only work correctly. Does every droid 2 have these problems? Are they all hot all the time? Are they all super sensitive? Are they all sucking battery at a phenomenal rate?

Samsung I7500 :: Music Player Sensitive To Headphone Jack Motion / Disable Those Events?
I've experienced the following annoying issue while using my Galaxy as a music player:

Motion of the headphone jack (e.g. while walking with phone in pocket) can be sufficient to trigger events that shut down music player or cause it to skip tracks. This is a major usability issue.

I'd like to disable those events or somehow configure the music player to be insensitive to them.

HTC Incredible :: Disable Auto Screen Dim Upon Screen Shut Off
Since root has been attained, I have a feeling this app would be possible:An app that disabled the screen dim right before the screen times out.My guess is (and please correct me if I'm wrong) that the voltage outgoing to the screen changes, and therefore dims the screen. If an app could be developed that maintains this voltage, the screen could be at a constant voltage, and not dim, ever.Has anyone heard of an app like this, and, if not, is there anyone interested in developing this?I am sure a lot of people (like myself) would be willing to donate for a program like this.

HTC Incredible :: Phone's Shattered Incredible Screen
So i think i might have the first shattered Incredible screen. I dropped it from two feet onto the metal camera protruding part. It hit with very little force. You can barely even see the mark from falling. So i pick it up and notice the entire screen is shattered when the screen was face up, the screen didn't even hit the ground! I can't believe how thin the Incredible screen is, it literally crumbled jut from the force of a light fall. I'm unimpressed in the build quality of the glass. I want to contact HTC about this and see if they can help me out, it seems like a manufacturing defect, maybe a weak screen? I need to find the biggest case that i can find for my replacement, one that could absorb a fall if it falls on the back part. I am thinking maybe a pillow as a case? That might help. Now im out ANOTHER 100 bucks to make an insurance claim on this. I highly recommend people keeping the insurance, the screen blows up even if it is not directly the part that hits if it is dropped.

HTC Incredible :: Stuck At HTC Incredible Boot Screen
I rooted a few days ago and did the forever S-off. I have ROM Manager loaded and was poking around in the system. I downloaded Skyraider and ROM Manager asked me to reboot. Not thinking it wouldn't let me know what it was doing when in recovery before doing something the rom had been applied. Now the Phone has for 40+ minutes been at the "HTC Incredible" boot screen.

I have read not to pull the battery but The power Button and Volume button do nothing so I could really use some suggestions. As a little more info I have not flashed the radio yet so it was a 1.x radio that a 2.2 rom was just seemingly applied to.

Bricked or recoverable? I have a Nandroid backup if someone can help me get back to that point...

HTC Incredible :: Incredible's Amoled Screen Vs Evo Larger Lcd
I have an Incredible and a friend just got the Evo. I also went to HTC's Evo launch party in NYC so I've had my fair share of time with it and I have to say, IMHO, I was shocked at the difference in AMOLED vs LCD.

I never really gave much thought to it and I always thought it wouldn't really make a difference but HOLY COW.

It was the first and glaring thing to me whenever comparing the phones. Everything from the home screen to widgets to photos, videos, web sites. It was quite dramatic. The LCD on the Evo always looked kind of washed out since I've become used to the AMOLED.

The viewing angles, crispness, deep blacks and color saturation on the AMOLED is a huge win for me.

HTC Incredible :: Stuck At The HTC Incredible Screen
I've had the phone since launch day with no problems. No suddenly, it's being weird. Yesterday I kept trying to answer a call and the other line would be dead. Then when I would try to cal the person back, there was a horrible high pitch buzzing noise in the speaker. So I did a battery pull and that seemed to fix it.

Now today, I turned the phone on and it' stuck on the initial "HTC Incredible" screen. It won't get past the screen. Has this happened to anyone?

The phone is not rooted.

HTC Incredible :: Where To Get New Screen
So I did something bone-headed and accidentally shattered the screen on my Incredible yesterday. Even after removing the battery and putting it back in, all I see on the screen are some multi-colored dots in the lower half of it.

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement screen? I called HTC and their vendor, but they were not any help. I did not have insurance on it at the time (though I thought I did, but it's a moot point).

HTC EVO 4G :: Screen Responsiveness - Incredible
Some people over a PPCGeeks are encountering some of the same screen responsiveness issues that Incredible users were seeing (non-responsive touch screen when phone is on non-conductive surfaces).

HTC Incredible :: Dust In Screen?
I've had my Inc since near the beginning (AMOLED), and just recently noticed a speck of dust under the screen. Nothing major, but a bit annoying when you're OCD like me. I bought it from Best Buy originally. Is this a pretty standard issue for the Inc, and most large screened smartphones for that matter? Is it worth taking in?? Will the problem just get worse, or is it an inevitable thing?

HTC Incredible :: Screen Slides By Itself
I have several different screen layouts when I slide to the left or to the right. As of 5 minutes ago, when I press the Home key, it goes to the home screen, but then automatically slides to the screen to the left, and then slides again to the left. I dont know if this might be something I accidentally programmed without knowing, or if its just some kind of bug.

HTC Incredible :: Could Not See Screen In The Sunlight?
I had previously reported to a user and a friend that I could not see my Incredible in the sunlight - was a bit embarrassing considering how it was 'new technology'. It turns out that I had my Brightness at 25% to conserve battery. I could not see a hint of my screen let alone someone calling when it was sunny out. I didn't even have to be in the direct sunlight.

I decided to turn my brightness up to 100% (and on automatic), and I could see everything even when it was really sunny out! After a few days of being grumpy about not being able to see my screen in the sun - I am now very relieved that I can see my Incredible in the sun. So morale of the story, if you live in a sunny state, change your brightness to high or automatic - it is WELL worth the battery sacrifice if you are outdoors a lot and need to see your screen. I've also noticed the High setting also decreases glare from indoor lights.

Does anyone know a way to keep the screen from timing out while either plugged in, or in the Maps app?

HTC Incredible :: Cracked Screen
I was going to get my son from the bus stop and dropped my phone about 2 ft on to the driveway. The Screen is completely shattered. The phone still works but I'm kinda screwed at the moment. I got Wirelesszone insurance and left asurion cause they told me it was cheaper, covers water dmg etc.. They didn't tell me is there is 30 day waiting period and i got the phone may 5th. I been looking online to see if i can find a new glasstop and replace it myself but i only found 1 on ebay for $125 and takes 2 weeks to arrive from China. I can wait until my 30 day waiting period and make a claim and pay $75 deductible, but I really don't want to have a shattered screen for 2 more weeks.

HTC Incredible :: GPS And Screen Time Out
With my Blackberry Bold, the screen times out after 30 seconds of inactivity. This is fine unless I am using the GPS and Google Maps. I always have to hit a button when driving to get the phone to kick back on. Without setting your screen time out to never, will the screen stay on using Google Maps on the Incredible?Also, people say the screen is hard to see in the sun. Will this be a problem in the car or does the screen have enough brightness if it is shaded in the car?

I have the added issue where, in whatever app I happen to be in when the phone starts freaking out, my cursor will jump from one position to many others - all on its own. after 1 month of use, I'm sure that this has something to do with light and the optical joystick. how many Incs here have the same problem.
