Are you finding it difficult to use your Android smartphone because the touch sensitivity is too high or too low? Don’t worry, you can easily adjust the touch sensitivity on your Android device to suit your needs. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to change touch sensitivity on Android.

Step 1: Access the Settings Menu

To begin, unlock your Android device and navigate to the home screen. From there, locate and tap on the Settings app. The Settings app is usually represented by a gear icon.

Step 2: Find the Accessibility Menu

Once you are in the Settings menu, scroll down until you find the Accessibility option. Tap on it to access the Accessibility settings.

Step 3: Adjust Touch Sensitivity

In the Accessibility settings menu, scroll down until you see a section named Interaction and dexterity. Under this section, there should be an option called Touch sensitivity. Tap on it to access the touch sensitivity settings.


  • If you cannot find the Touch Sensitivity option in this menu, it may be located in a different sub-menu or under a different name depending on your device’s manufacturer. Try looking for terms like “Touch & hold delay” or “Touch feedback”.

    If all else fails, consult your device’s user manual or search online for specific instructions for your device model.

  • If you have a Samsung Galaxy device, look for an option called “Touch Sensitivity (Glove Mode)”. This feature is specifically designed to enhance touch sensitivity when using your phone with gloves on.

Step 4: Adjust the Slider

Once you have found the touch sensitivity settings, you will likely see a slider that you can adjust to increase or decrease the touch sensitivity. Slide it to the right to increase sensitivity or slide it to the left to decrease sensitivity. Test different levels of sensitivity until you find one that feels comfortable for you.

Pro Tip:

If you are experiencing unintentional touch inputs, it might be helpful to decrease the sensitivity. On the other hand, if your device is not registering your touches accurately, increasing the sensitivity can improve responsiveness.

Step 5: Save Your Changes

Once you have adjusted the touch sensitivity to your liking, navigate to the top or bottom of the screen and look for a button that says Save, Apply, or something similar. Tap on it to save your changes.

Congratulations! You have successfully changed the touch sensitivity on your Android device. Remember, if at any point you want to revert back to the default settings, simply follow these steps again and adjust the slider accordingly.

We hope this tutorial has been helpful in improving your Android user experience. Enjoy using your smartphone with just the right touch sensitivity!
