Tips and Tricks

  • Though other materials may be recognized, using leather gloves will yield better touch inputs than the rest.
  • Using special touchscreen gloves may not require you to increase the touch sensitivity. However, increasing sensitivity would make the special gloves more accurate.
  • Tap the screen of your Note3 a little more firm when using gloves.

Questions and Answers
