I've reset my phone (Android 4.3) but because the touchscreen is not fully responding, I can't go through the initial tutorial and therefore using some apps like airdroid to remotely control my phone via PC. How can I control my phone using no apps? Kind regards

  • Is USB debugging enabled? You can use key events to do the initial setup in AirDroid. – Firelord Feb 22 '16 at 17:56
  • @Firelord yes, USB debugging is enabled. I used OTG cabel which solved my problem. – faf Feb 23 '16 at 9:45

Buy yourself a USB OTG cable. You will be able to access the phone using a mouse.

  • How do you know OP's device supports USB OTG? – Firelord Feb 23 '16 at 5:47
  • That is actually a good point. I assumed an Android 4.3 device would have that capability but I was wrong. – Alexandru Ungureanu Feb 23 '16 at 20:35
