Calibrate the Gyroscope on Samsung Galaxy S4

Questions and Answers

Why does my S4 have no option to calibrate the gyroscope?

I have attempted to calibrate my phone due to not being able to use the keys on the bottom row of my keyboard. Screen has been cleaned, phone Factory Reset, soft rest, turned off and on, and tried using different keyboards etc. If I try to press any letter on the bottom row it recognizes it as something else.

Do you mean there's no option in the phone at all for the gyroscope calibration or you just couldn't find it? If you can't find it in settings, try looking again. Hit Settings and then tap on motion and gestures under My Device:

Select Gyroscope Calibration here:


If your S4 does not have this option, perhaps you've installed a custom ROM or you might have a clone/knockoff S4. It is possibility and one you need to look into.

Since you've also done the Factory Reset and tried using different keyboard apps, you might want to consider that the digitizer is faulty. Register your phone at Samsung's site here:


Go through the warranty process and see if you qualify for service. You can also get an estimate on repairs if you don't qualify.
