    I have had a Motorola Moto e4 for almost 2 years with relatively no problems. A few days ago, my phone's touch screen stops working in certain frequently pressed places on the screen. This proves to be mildly annoying, but manageable as I would just flip the phone to landscape to get past this (especially when typing). Unfortunately, my phone has finally died and after I charged it, it now asks for my password so I can log in. The thing is, I can't press one of the onscreen keyboard keys to enter my password completely, and thus cannot unlock my phone. I cannot use my fingerprint because every time my phone reboots it asks for the password. I know if I can get my landscape mode I can enter in the correct password but all my attempts (notification bar, lock screen camera) have all failed. Any help?

    Even if you could change it to landscape mode you would have to get in first to change it.

    not sure about the first, but if you need to backup stuff before going for a new device, something like that might help

    Wouldn't he need to get into the phone to set that up?

    not that i know of. had a similar issue once, could see the screen but digitizer was broken. could use it right away,

    a Bluetooth one wouldn't just work, since you would need to tell your phone to establish the Bluetooth connection. a wired one should be plug and play

    it's quite an overkill tho. an otg adapter to usb and some usb keyboard you have lying around at home also does the trick.
