Default [Q] I9300 Screen issues


Cutting a long story short, is there a screen calibration app/menu option for the S3? I cracked my screen the other week, and I have had the screen replaced (not by samsung). Ive noticed now that the screen intermittenly sometimes sticks, becomes non responsive and/or the image "vibrates" when I long press on an app to move it. OR when I try to hang up a call, 9/10 times the press doesnt "register"

Before I go and moan at the shop I got it repaired at, is there any app or any way of calibrating the screen ?

I should mention that the phone is not running a stock rom. It wasnt before the screen was replaced and everything ran flawlessly, even with the crack Now I'm no expert but I would suggest they've either fitted a dodgy screen / there's a loose connection or it needs calibration.

If anyone's wondering it is on Temasek's CM11 unofficial build. Although I had it on CM 11 for a while and the problem persisted.

I suspect it is a hardware issue with the replacement screen but I thought I'd ask.

Flash a full stock rom to test but it sounds like you've a hardware fault.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

If I remeber correctly this behavior happens when the screen is repaired without that special adhesive layer which originally glues everything together.

Back on stock rom, tried the calibration/diagnostic screen.... no dice, according to that it works ok lol.

It looks like I'm going back to the shop I got the repair done, to try and get them to fix it (again!) Bet they will try and charge me more money tbh I am almost at the point of living with it BUT I had two phone calls I could not answer today because the screen wasn't working properly, and that will not do

Edit :- found the accessibility options which allows me to answer/end calls using the hardware buttons. Still a bit gash but better than nothing.

Will see what the shop says, less urgent now, at least I have a way of answering the damn thing lol.
