Samsung Galaxy Note 2 S-Pen over sensitive problems and solutions

Samsung developed S-Pen for Galaxy Note series to help users when they need conduct activities that need precision such as writing, drawing, photo editing and even more. However, not every user can take advantage of the stylus to its full potential, since many folks experienced an over sensitive Galaxy Note 2 S-Pen, GNote 10.1 users also encountered this.


Their stylus keeps selecting things while hovering, so we can still select or scroll without touching the phone screen, that’s cool, right? It may look fantastic for some, but you will realize that it can also be a problem when you want to write or draw, you aren’t able to write anything legible, and your drawing is going to be messy.

If you want Galaxy Note 2 S-Pen sensitivity gets normal, there is an effective way suggested by users who also have this issue, and of course they were able to normalize the S-Pen sensitivity. They took the bad stylus from the device and slamming the back of the S-Pen gently to hard and flat surface like a table or floor.


After that, try using the stylus on your device, if there is no change you can repeat it, but this time slam it decently hard, but try not to make your stylus scratched or dented. When it works then you can make use of the S-Pen to type, scroll, writing and drawing precisely on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (SGH-T889/SGH-I317/SPH-L900/SCH-I605).

    Go to the S Pen tab in settings and change between the dominant hand options (Right to Left – Left to right, then go back). This re-calibrates the S Pen.
