Thanks for letting us know here about your concern about the latest security patch rollout on your beloved Samsung Galaxy A11 and at the same time, experiencing issues ranging from touch screen to hard-pressed power button, and we are sorry to hear that.
If I face similar difficulties, I will feel very bothered too.
Before you try out the recommendations below, be sure to check if your device's software and related apps are updated to the latest version. To update your mobile device's software, follow these steps:
If you attach accessories, such as screen protectors to the touch screen, the touch screen may not work properly. Small stickers, such as protective labels, can also affect touch sensitivity. In particular, some Samsung-unapproved protective glasses or films have only adhesive on the side edges, and if these products are attached to the screen, the protective glass or film may not adhere completely to the screen.
Because of this, some areas of the touch screen may not recognize the touch and may respond intermittently. After removing the attachment, check the touch function again. If the attachment is removed and the touch works properly, your phone has no problem regarding the touch screen.
Note: It is recommended to use Samsung-approved accessories. Using unapproved accessories may cause performance problems.
Check 2. Be careful when touching the screen.
If you are wearing gloves or your hands are not clean while touching the touchscreen, or if you tap the screen with sharp objects or your fingertips, the touchscreen may malfunction.
Check 3. Moisture may affect the touch screen.
The touchscreen may malfunction in humid conditions or when exposed to water.
Check 4. Activate the touch sensitivity feature.
Your Galaxy phone has a feature that increases the touch sensitivity of the screen for use when a screen protector is attached. If you feel that the touch on the screen has become relatively less sensitive after using the screen protector, follow the steps below to enable the Touch Sensitivity feature.
Step 1. Go to the Settings, and then select the Display menu.
Step 2. Find and tap the switch to activate the Touch sensitivity.
- If there is no response on the screen, or if the screen is cracked, the device may need repair.
- Device screenshots and menus may vary depending on the device model and software version.
If that doesn't fix the problem, you may submit an error report through the Samsung Members app as follows:
Step 1. Long press Samsung Members icon on Apps screen and tap Error reports.
Step 2. Tap OK on agreement popup to send system log data.
Step 3. Select Symptom category "Sensor/Touch".
Step 4. Describe the problem in details and SEND.
