Anna qwerty keypad

I like the new qwerty keypad always prefer a qwerty over a simple one,but I'm facing a problem that the keypad in my N8 is not completely accurate,often I press some key and another undesired key is pressed and often I have to apply some pressure on the screen as it doesn't responses to my touch.

Unfortunately this is how it is with Anna. Nothing you can do about it. Maybe things will improve with Belle.

 Capacitive screens are scanned and so there is no drift in the co-ordinates on the screen. So your problem is almost certainly due you not tapping the keys accurately. In the unlikely event that the touch panel was displaced you would have a consistant error all the time everywhere on the screen.

Capacitive screens are not pressure sensitive.

(Please note that when you touch a character the character nearest (top,below, left or right that at times get selected).
to avoid wrong characters being selected heres what you got to do.
You got to visually divide the screen into two left and right. so all the characters on the lest use you left thumb or index finger and for the charaters on the right use your right thumb or index finger. and you will see that you can now type accurately... am sure you will be able to relish the speed... Cheers ! Good Luck.

Re: Anna qwerty keypad

As both Ray and Cataholic said, The N8's screen is Capacitive and NOT pressure sensitive.

The screen is coated with a thin conductive layer and as your body also conducts electricity the phone is able to detect a distortion in the screens electrostatic field.

Make sure you are using the pad of your finger and not the nail, finger nails are not good conductors.

If the problem persists take it in and get it checked.
