Galaxy TabPro S: How to Use the Touchscreen on my Samsung Galaxy TabPros S?

Last Update Date : Apr 25. 2018


Use your fingers on the touch screen to perform actions.

Warning: 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.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Important: The device may not recognise touch inputs close to the edges of the screen, which are outside of the touch input area. Leaving the touchscreen idle for extended periods may result in afterimages (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.
