I use my phone for work a lot, which means typing a lot of emails and messages.
I’ve noticed compared to other devices that the screen seems less sensitive, particularly in that it misses the space key a lot. I have to type a lot slower and still have more mistakes. This is really causing problems when I’m busy.
Has anyone had similar issues? I’ve tried multiple keyboards with the same issue. I’m using the stock one now.
I think I had the same problem when I first got the phone, but I no longer notice it. How long have you had your phone? Might it be a matter of getting used to it, or do you think it’s a genuine issue? In case of the latter, you might want to report it with customer support. Alternatively, have you tried swiping instead of typing?
I tried this tool to check the touch response and it seemed to find something interesting:
If I tap alternately with my left and right thumbs in a vertical line, the screen seems to detect a point in the middle creating this “H” pattern. This is despite me typing alternately very deliberately. I guess this could be the problem for typing.
Could someone see if they can reproduce this?
I’ve included the screenshots below although it’s a bit hard to see the white pixels. It’s very obvious if it’s happening in the app.
Agree, thought the same once I saw the same pattern on my test as it was on yours.
On a phone I’m not exactly a fast typer (though an impatient one ), my issues with typing are more Wurstfinger™-related, there’s a few keys I often miss by one. Nothing FP-specific, though, have the same on anything with less than 105 keys…
So, comparing the two phones I’m using regularly (an S7 from Samsung and the FP3, and, if memory serves, my old FP2), I’d say there isn’t much of a difference for me, really.
