Samsung blames Google for touch issue with One UI 6.1 on Galaxy S23

Late last month, Samsung started to roll out One UI 6.1 with Galaxy for the last-gen devices. That includes the entire Galaxy S23 lineup. But the rollout didn’t go as smoothly as expected. Soon after the phones started to receive the update, reports about various issues started to pop up. Among them is the touchscreen issue.

As reported by the users, the Samsung Galaxy S23 with One UI 6.1 doesn’t register the touch input correctly, and you would need to tap multiple times. It goes without saying that this issue is quite frustrating. And given that the S23 is a last-gen flagship, it made many users angry.

Samsung has responded to the issue and says that it’s Google’s fault. The South Korean phone maker says that the touch issues on Galaxy S23 with One UI 6.1 are due to the Google app’s Discover feed. This feed appears on the left of the home screen, and it’s making the phone not register touches correctly.
