Google Pixel 4a 5G has an interesting issue with touch recognition. The sensitivity of the touch screen at the edges decreased slightly after the December payment. For example, there are problems with using the navigation keys on the bottom screen, where the touch may not be recognized. Google already knows about the bug and is working to fix it. In the meantime, it has at least a few tips for its users that could make it easier for them to suffer.
Google Pixel 4a 5G and its touch recognition issues
Google is aware of this issue and will fix it with another security update. In the meantime, Google is advising people to slightly change the way they tap icons at the edge of the device, according to the Android Authority.
- If you tap the icons at the edge of the screen, tap the center or the side furthest from the screen.
- If you tap the icons or navigation keys at the bottom of the screen, use your thumb instead of your finger to increase the pressure on the screen as well as the area where you touch the screen.
However, in the meantime, the January security patch has already been released, which did not eliminate the problem. So it’s not clear when it will come, maybe with the February or maybe with the March security patch? Until then, users must use tips recommended by Google. Using the three buttons on the bottom screen would be a better solution for users to switch to gestures, at least temporarily.
