    Default Galaxy S3: Is there a way to calibrate the touch screen?

    When I type on the S3 in vertical mode, whenever I tried to type the period "." sign, it hits the enter key, the m key, the space bar, or even the back space key instead. And it gets highly frustrating when I want to type "....".

    So my question is, is there by any chance a way to calibrate the touch screen please? (*Not the motion calibration or gyroscope calibration, but the touch screen itself)

    Thanks!

    Go to settings, display and it should show up with G Sensor Calibration. Follow the instructions on screen and it should fix your issues.

    Hopefully he doesn't have a Verizon flavor - there's no such setting on my phone.
    OP, I'm not aware of anything like that on this phone (I think my old HTC Incredible had a setting like that). If your screen is that far off you may have to get a replacement. Is this a new problem, or something that you've just ignored since you got the phone? If you're still within the 14 day period you should be able to exchange it for a brand new phone.

    On the current release of Android it's not under Display. Go to Settings / Motion / Sensitivity settings / Gyroscope calibration.

    But I'm not sure that will address the OP's issue. Can't hurt to try, though.

    I wrote that long before 4.3. Let's see if I can find it now...... Nope, don't see it anywhere.

    I'm currently also having minor but infuriating touch screen calibration issues using my galaxy note 2, but I only seem to notice it while using dolphin browser, so this might be a different issue. However, I also have not been able to find a way to recalibrate the screen in 4.3. Is it just not there? I'd like to try that before I start exploring the possibility that dolphin browser is actually causing the problem.

    I haven't seen a calibrate option anywhere, not even on Jellybean. The gyroscope calibration discusses in earlier posts doesn't affect the screen at all.
