A number of early Galaxy S9 buyers have discovered an annoying issue with their screens. Apparently, they come with dead zones, which are screen areas that dont register any kind of activity.

Users have been posting both on Samsung forums and Reddit about the matter.

Whats interesting about these reports is that different screen areas seem to be affected. So the dead zone problem isnt localized to a particular region of the screen. According to Android Police, some users have been able to fix the problem by resetting the phone to factory settings or increasing the touchscreen sensitivity. Neither solution is acceptable, as the phones screen should work flawlessly.

The best thing you should do, if your Galaxy S9 does have a dead zone problem, is to return your units and hope the replacement doesnt have the same problem.

Samsung, meanwhile, is aware of the issue and encourages users to contact the company.
