How To Fix A Samsung Galaxy Screen That Detects Ghost Tapping

  • The first thing you can do is take a cloth and dry the screen. Also, be sure that you dry your hands as well.
  • Is your Samsung Galaxy in a protective case? Then, consider using the screen without the case to see if it resolves the issue.
  • Are you using a screen protector? Then, try using the Galaxy's display without the screen protector.
  • Also,  ensure that you remove all screen covers from the device. This includes the one that ships with the smartphone or tablet.
