Google says it’s conscious of an issue with Pixel 4A 5G touchscreens and is engaged on a repair. Some units are failing to reply constantly to faucets on the decrease a part of the display, which is especially impacting people who’ve opted for three-button navigation reasonably than swipes. Android Police spotted complaints from 4A 5G house owners experiencing the problem, which appears to have cropped up after the December safety patch was launched.
Google’s response comes courtesy of a Pixel support forum post. The corporate says it would handle the issue ”in an upcoming software program replace”, but it surely’s wanting like that shall be at the very least a pair extra weeks away since Android Police studies January’s safety patch didn’t handle it. Within the meantime, Google advises customers to work across the difficulty with some particular directions on tapping navigation controls:
1. When tapping icons on the sting of the display, faucet the middle of the button or the facet of the button/icon furthest away from the sting of the show.
2. When tapping icons, together with the navigation buttons on the underside of your display, use the tip of your finger or thumb as an alternative. It will assist enhance contact recognition.
It’s not a simple process to attempt to consciously change the best way you do one thing like faucet a button in your telephone display, so hopefully Pixel 4A 5G customers will solely have to try these awkward workarounds for a short while longer.
Google’s January patch did address a raft of other Pixel 4A 5G bugs and quirks with the safety replace. So whereas the touchscreen difficulty persists, at the very least an audio bug that was inflicting crackling sounds in some conditions is not an issue.
