Samsung acknowledges Galaxy S23 touchscreen issue on One UI 6.1, says it’s Google’s fault


Samsung started rolling out the update to One UI 6.1 for the Galaxy S23 family in late March, and since getting it, a lot of people have been complaining about touchscreen issues. Namely, the touchscreen on these devices sometimes doesn’t register touch input properly, and one has to tap multiple times to get a touch registered.

Naturally, this is extremely annoying, and now Samsung has finally acknowledged the problem, but there’s a twist. According to the Korean company, this is pretty much Google’s fault, as apparently the issue is being caused by the Google app’s Discover feed, which you can have appear to the left of your leftmost home screen.

Samsung says Google is aware of the problem and working to fix it for good. Until that happens, Samsung is offering a temporary solution to affected users: they should clear the Google app’s data, and then restart their device. Once that’s done, the touchscreen should register all touches properly.

To clear the Google app’s data, you need to go to Settings > Apps > Google > Storage and tap on Clear data. This may require you to log into your Google account again after you do it.

Google is most likely to fix the issue through an update to the Google app, so make sure you have automatic updates enabled in the Play Store. If you’re impatient, you can always manually update all apps through the Play Store by tapping on your profile icon, selecting Manage apps and device, and then tapping on the Update all button.
