Screen Sensitivity settings on the Note 8 for gloves?

JUMP TO SOLUTION

How can I activate/change the screen sensitivity setting on the note 8.  My note 4 had a setting for it in the pull down menu but my Note 8 doesn't and won't respond when wearing my motorcycle gloves or any gloves.

Why are you using your phone on a motorcycle??? Don't think your gonna have much luck using the phone with gloves on. The screen wasn't made for that. Just take your gloves off and don't have a deathwish riding a motorcycle one handed.

Thanks for the smart answer!  Most people use their phone for GPS on a motorcycle.  Or I could want to use in the winter with gloves on.

 

My old Note 4 has a setting to change sensitivity settings to be used with gloves.

There is a place to adjust sensitivity.  I saw it the other day but forget where. I'll post when I find it again.

FYI, 

 

That hard press home button setting should not make a difference for whole screen sensitivity. If you have a Zagg glass you got ripped off. Very poor sensitivity. Even without a screen protector I could move around my note 5 faster. Maybe it's this new gorilla glass??!!

FYI...I agree according to the literature. However many including myself, have noticed a difference in SOME protectors. I have tested a couple different ones, even though I don't use the so called glass ones any more. Installing them identical, Even off to one side a little or pushed up or down a little. Put it this way, a couple hundred dollars for my own tinkering to be honest with you😉 I can honestly say for whatever the reason or reasons, yes there is a difference. Maybe the way it's embedded, maybe a difference in some of the screens themselves, don't know as I'm still tinkering. I still say that maybe one day we will find out.

As a matter of fact, turning the hard press home button to 1 of 5, the phone's entire screen becomes a little more sensitive. This was hard-coded into the Note 8 and 9.
