    Hi all,

    I have a galaxy note 5.

    I have noticed when using it that if i hold it too tightly or firmly or squeezeit the apps that are the edges of the screen will open. Yet I don't app the app or want to open the app. This happens sometimes with the keyboard too.

    The iphone and windows phone never did this yet I hate those phones.

    Is there a solution? Why does my phone behave this way?

    Cheers

    Not sure why this is happening to you but this behavior is the marketing slogan for HTC U11

    Yep! That is one of my biggest gripes of Android. They have not figured out a way to ignore unintended touches. I compared my iPhone to my Note 5 and did the same touches and the iPhone ignored it while the Note 5 launched apps, moved apps to other screens and overall made it a pain.

    I thought Apple patented a technology years ago that prevents unintended touches but I can't find anything on it.

    It is so silly they reduce bezel size but offer no solution to unintentional touches. If you want to help unfortunately a case is all that reduces the issue.

    I dunno. I have my note 5 in an otterbox case and I've got no problem with this. Now..When I take it out of the case, that is a different story.

    I don't know of a fix, I don't think there is one in Android. A case helps but that is it.

    This is why I miss even a small bezel on the sides.

    Not to be rude but why would you even squeeze the phone tight?

    I've noticed this a few times when I've tried using my Note 5 without a case. I've also noticed that the phone will open an app or do other things when I get my finger is a little ways off from actually touching the screen.
