Using the Touchscreen on Your Galaxy TabPro S

Use your fingers on the touch screen to perform actions.

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

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

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

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

• It is recommended to use fingers when you use the touchscreen.
