You are now in the secret service menu of your smartphone. You now need to test the touch display with tapping on following tile: “Touch”

Now a pattern appears on the display. Swipe this pattern with your finger. Areas that are recognized by the touch screen correctly are marked with green. Move the fingers also on the place where you think that the display has a defect.
