I have Star N7189 (5.5") with the lower zone of touch screen dead
The menu and back buttons don't work,but the physical home button works.
I tried to press hard on the edges of the screen, I tried to apply a twist from the short sides as if it were nothing but a wet towel. I did the hard reset but it did not work.
Sometimes pressing dead area, the phone takes it as menu button
As well as replacing the screen what other methods can I try? Is there any app, launcher or trick to resize the screen usable only to the working area?
P.S. a few hours after leaving it in airplane mode suddenly the touch had this problem but I do not remember if I inadvertently placed something heavy in that area of the cell.
