X1 Yoga palm rejection way too sensitive

2016-03-01, 1:38 AM

The X1 Yoga rejects touch as if it were a palm way too easily. When using the X1 in tablet mode, my thumb often is at an angle where the entire thumb is used to scroll through pages, however, the X1 sees this as a palm, rejecting the touch. 

 

Heres a video detailing what I'm talking about.

 

As a note, this does not happen at all on a Surface Pro 4, which actaully knows that I'm using a thumb not a palm. I mean how can the touchscreen mistake my thumb for how big a palm is? Not very happy as I use my X1 in tablet mode to browse the web quite often.

Is there a way to dial back the palm detection sensitivity on the X1 Yoga?

Your problem is because your thumb isn't flat onto the screen when scrolling so when you thumb goes onto side the screen thinks "Stop!!! This ain't a thumb???" that's why you need to keep your thumb fully flat onto screen or it will keep rejecting so yeah mosts touch screen would do this while some won't.

For me, the issue is quite the opposite.  When my thumb is flat on the screen, its surface area is large enough that the X1 Yoga thinks my palm is on the screen.  I have to use the very tip of my thumb or finger otherwise it thinks my thumb is a palm.  It simply won't read my thumb's movement if I lay it fully flat on the device. 

 

In my IT support role, I have seen and used touch screens from many makes and models and the X1 Yoga is the only device I've encounted with this thumb / false palm detection issue .  Some other examples include the current X1 Tablet and Yoga 260, any MS Surface model, and any iPad/iPhone.

 

Here is a Youtube video I found where the person is giving an example of the problem on the X1 Yoga (I realize they are rolling their thumb as swiping, but I assure you I am keeping mine flat when it falsely detects it as a palm):
