so I had a quick look on Google for a solution to this, to no avail. So I thought the next best place to ask would be here.

I find that I have to press about 0.5cm above whatever I want to press in order to actually press it, so I was wondering if there was a way to calibrate the screen. And there was nothing in the options, that I could see.

Although this isn't the biggest issue in the world, it is a little annoying.


Most phones do not have screen calibration routines. If it's always been off it likely is defective or poorly made. If it has gotten worse you might try a factory reset (but you'll lose all your data, apps, config, etc.). If the phone is still under warranty you might try getting it replaced.

  • Well I got it 2nd hand, so I don't know what it was like before I got it, and I doubt it is under warranty. – Jordan Oct 19 '15 at 15:27
  • If it was factory reset prior to you getting it, and it's always had the problem, then another factory reset isn't likely to help. So you either need to live with it or get a different phone. And, as an aside, if you do replace it I'd suggest staying away from the Chinese brands like Huawei if possible as they seem more prone to a variety of problems. – mikeatlarge Oct 19 '15 at 15:41
  • Yeah, it was pretty cheap. But my wage is crap, and my Windows Phone was annoying me to a point where I would happily replace it, even if it meant having to part with £60... And I wanted to try Android, so the phone is bad, but so far Android seems a lot nicer than Windows and iOS – Jordan Oct 19 '15 at 16:18
