Android mobile devices are constantly advancing nowadays, which leads to multiple updates of the same operating system and this is because of the new deliveries of new functions that Android will bring to smartphones.

However, the update processes are not fast at all, so sometimes our phone may shut down or we may stop installing the system update, which generates some  failures and errors in our device.

This is very common in LG branded devices, hence the users tend to download the software LG mobile support to fix phone system freezing on logo screen.



And it also normally happens that in Samsung's recognized brand devices after finishing the update strangely touch or touch of the device mobile devices stop working, making our phone unusable since it is through touch that we practically perform all actions on the same device.

How can I know if my Samsung phone touch is damaged?

One of the main ways to see if floating touch is failing is if so-called "ghost touches" are being presented. The above is easy to notice if you see that some parts of the screen "push", most likely the touch is failing.

You can also use programs like MultiTouch Tester to check if the touch responds correctly at every point on the screen. Finally, if the screen does not respond to any of your touches, the touch may be damaged.

What should I do if the screen of my Samsung device becomes unresponsive?

Clearly, the touch screen gets damaged at any moment for no uncommon reason. Sometimes the screen becomes unresponsive for momentary problems, in which case there are some things we can try.



Restart your device

It's the simplest process possible, but it can help. If the screen doesn't work, try shutting down or restarting your mobile. The phone may be frozen and a reboot should fix the problem if so.

Run a screen test from Samsung members

With Samsung Members there is the possibility of control your cell phone remotely. In turn, experienced users can also help you with problems with touch or any other that may arise. Without a doubt, it is a great application for anyone who owns a Samsung mobile.

Enable Safe Mode

Turn on the equipment, once the Samsung logo is displayed it is necessary press the volume down key, press it until the mobile phone starts up. A warning will appear at the bottom of the screen telling you if Safe Mode is turned on.

In this mode, touch should work correctly, eliminating the possibility that the problem is an external program. After entering this mode, uninstall any suspicious applications.

Free up storage space

An almost full phone will respond slowly, which can be mistaken for problems with the touchscreen. If your mobile is very full, free up space by uninstalling applications you don't use and deleting unnecessary files, this way your device should respond better.

Reset your mobile to factory data

If the touch on your Samsung Galaxy doesn't seem to work at all, you can try a factory data reset. Please note that this will erase all personal files, so it should only be used as a last resort.


This varies by model, but you'll find the option most of the time in the Settings section. In Settings, search for "About phone" and click on the "Reset" option and then on "Reset to Defaults", where you will find the final option to perform the process.


Disable developer options

There are some developer options that can cause problems with the screen and touch of Samsung phones. Luckily, you can easily turn off this mode, for this go to "Settings" and then "Developer options" At the top you will see the option to enable and disable these features.

How to detect if the damage is on the physical screen of my mobile

If the cell phone has been dropped and the screen is broken, this damage can be represented by the touch of your Samsung Galaxy. Likewise, if after all of the above, the touch simply doesn't respond, we could be facing physical damage.

If your cell phone is still covered by the warranty and the failure occurs out of nowhere, that's better contact the Samsung technical service. If you don't have a warranty, visit an expert who can perform the repair.

What can we do if the Touch or the touch of the Samsung mobile does not work after an update?

There is a large number of users who have come across the same case, and when they turn to Samsung technical support they get no response to the fault and they try to restart it via certain commands with physical buttons, but when they turn on it still doesn't work.
