When scolling webpages it often zooms instead very frustrating. Anyway to turn the sensitivity down? Its a 10" Pendo pad running Andoid 4.2.2.
It's not a sensitivity problem. The issue is the touch digitizer — it's detecting phantom touches when it shouldn't be.
If you go into Developer settings and select the option "Show touch indicator" you will get indicators that show where a touch was detected. If you see multiple indicators appear when touching the display with just 1 finger then it's a sign that your tablet is a little dodgy.
This happens on my Cube tablet but it seems to be caused by the tablet's charger which is introducing noise and ripple into the charging current.
Cool thanks for the info. Does warranty cover this normally? Purchased from BigW or Coles/Woolworths can't remember.
Ok turned it on so I can see my touches but it is all good. The touches aare perfect but the problem keeps happening.
Maybe it's a software thing. There are actually two different ways to zoom a web page other than pinch gestures. The first method is to simply double tap the screen. Second method is double tap and then holding the finger down while moving it up and down to zoom in or out. This is designed so that you can zoom on a resistive touch screen using just one finger (or stylus).
Try a different browser.
ahh cheers mate must be the issue, so simple didn't think of it myself. I'm using opera so will try something else.
Depending on the firmware you can turn down the frequency the digitiser checks for touches; this in effect lowers the sensitivity.
'50' is default, my galaxy note got better battery life and was flawless at '20'
