    I am on a tablet, and I want to play Minecraft: that requires pressing and holding for long periods of time to move "Forward." The Press and hold Delay feature does nothing. My problem is, when I press and hold, and goes for about 3 seconds, then stops. How do I make it so I can move forward for long periods of time without it stopping on me?

    Welcome to Android Central! That shouldn't matter when playing a game. My daughter doesn't have any issue when she plays Minecraft on her Lenovo Tab 4 8. Do you have a screen protector on? Those can sometimes affect the device's ability to detect a constant touch.

    No, I don't have a screen protected and it's definately not an issue with the touch screen itself because the length is holds down and stops is always the same.

    Which tablet do you have? Was Minecraft installed from the Play Store, or from some other source?

    Do you notice this issue with other games that might require a constant press for gameplay (like for movement or for firing)?

    Yes, it happens for other games too. I am on a TG Tech tablet. I got Minecraft from the play store.

    That's a 10 inch $60 tablet. I'd be willing to bet that there's a design flaw in it. $60 would be cheap for a 7 inch tablet, but for that one?

    I'd bet that Rukbat is right.

    Try a touch test app like Touch Screen Test to see if the screen continues to register a prolonged touch.
