    I recently applied a screen protector and ever since the screen is horribly unresponsive. I need to increase the screen sensitivity. Is this possible?
    Thank you.

    Not unless you open the phone and hack the hardware. I'd recommend going to a different screen protector.

    Thanks for the swift reply. Are you certain of this? My last phone, Sony Xperia Z3 Compact had a glove-mode setting which increased screen sensitivity. Seems like a sensible option to me.

    Samsung had that ages ago (I think on the Note 3 and S4), but not anymore for some reason. I know that from the Note 5, at least, I'm sure they removed that option because most of their screens still respond to gloves fairly well.

    Thanks. It could be the screen protector perhaps. I have a tempered glass one. Can you recommend any? I wouldn't want to risk screen damage by using a flimsy screen protector.

    Unfortunately I'm not a fan of tempered glass protectors, so I can't really recommend any as I haven't used any. I'm on T-Mobile's JOD, so adding one of those is a PITA and a big investment for a phone that might not be with me more than 6 months :P

    Plus, I've used film protectors since the Note 2 and I've never had a scratch or crack (but then again, I'm not super careless with my phones either). But I do use the S-Pen heavily when I have a Note phone and so far the film ones haven't let me down.

    A 3 pack on amazon is $8. I'd say that's a pretty small investment.

    Ok this is gonna sound weird but if you like glass screen protectors.

    Go to Walmart there's a BlackWeb series. They may not be 100% what you're looking for but I had one on my s6 and iPhone 5-6 and never had any issues with them. It's a nice protector and relatively cheepbas well ($19.99 CDN) and I loved kt way more then any of the big names.

    Waiting for a restock on the S7 this month then I'll be putting one on my s7

    I use the ishieldz flat glass protector with no sensitivity issue. The curved glass protectors have adhesive on the edges with no silicone film in the middle. This air gap causes poor sensitivity...been there and replaced.
