Galaxy Core: How do I use the touchscreen gestures?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Using the Touch Screen


Use only fingers to use the touch screen.

IMPORTANT:

• Do not allow the touch screen to come into contact with other electrical devices. Electrostatic discharges can cause the touch screen to malfunction.

• To avoid damaging the touch screen, do not tap it with anything sharp or apply excessive pressure to it with your fingertips.

NOTE:

• The device may not recognize touch inputs close to the edges of the screen, which are outside of the touch input area.

• Leaving the touch screen idle for extended periods may result in afterimages (screen burn-in) or ghosting. Turn off the touch screen when you do not use the device.
