Three updates in, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE still has touchscreen problems
- The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is getting a third firmware update to fix touchscreen issues.
- Users still report problems with scrolling and zooming in/out on the screen.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has been plagued by touchscreen issues for some users ever since it launched. After two failed attempts at fully fixing the problems, Samsung has now released a third software update for the phone, once again aimed at correcting touchscreen problems.
According to SamMobile, Samsung is now rolling out firmware version G781BXXU1ATK1 to the Snapdragon 865 variants of the Galaxy S20 FE. The update brings the November security patch to the phones and also carries stability improvements for the touchscreen. However, users with affected handsets are still experiencing problems with the screen even after the update.

One user writes on Reddit that the latest Galaxy S20 FE update fixes jittery scrolling to some extent, but not completely. Another reports that the touchscreen experience has improved but is still not up to the mark. The main issue that remains to be addressed is zooming in and out on the screen. The action apparently results in strong stuttering and erratic behavior.
It looks like Samsung is most of the way there in terms of fixing the S20 FE’s screen issues. Another update or so should do the trick if there’s not something wrong with the hardware. That said, it would have been great if Samsung ironed out these problems before bringing the phone to the market. No one likes to buy a new device and have the basics not functioning as they should.
