Phone Tab Pro 8.4-how I fixed oversensitive screen

So my two Tab Pros were driving me bonkers because of the oversensitive screen was making the device almost useless, opening apps when I didn't want and being too sensitive to register touch and hold.

I downloaded an app from the Play Store which fixed the problem on both. SGS Screen Booster. Please note that I'm not spamming the forum with this-just wanted to pass it on as this issue was driving me nuts!

On the sensitivity adjustment I moved it from default of 40 to 45-50. This is with a screen protector and now both tabs are a pleasure to use.

Thanks for sharing this. It does work! Though the problem still happens but the frequency really can be ignored. The interesting part is this is an old app for Galaxy S (I9000), I bet the developer didn't expect saving samsung's ass again 2 years later.

Glad to be of help-I've gotten so much out of the forum that I'm pleased to give something back at last!

is this for when you scrolling on the tab, it'll sometimes register as a click?
