My phone has 3 years and when im in a Pokemon window, and want to go all the way down in order to release it, the scrolling is very difficult.

I need to tap very close to the screen lateral border and even like this i need 3-4 attempts to scroll until the release button.

Is the lag? is my phone? Any suggestions?

  • Does it lag when playing the game? Is the game from the official store or is the game incompatible and you used the apk to install it? – dly Jul 19 '16 at 6:51
  • @dly is the official one and except this one, i have no lags or problems regarding the phone. – lois6b Jul 19 '16 at 6:53
  • Then I'm pretty sure the phone has no problem with the game itself. What phone is it? – dly Jul 19 '16 at 6:54
  • @dly HTC One M7 – lois6b Jul 19 '16 at 6:55

I don't know if you've figured this out already, but try using two fingers. Like a dual finger scroll (like something you would do on a laptop touchpad). It always works for me. It saved so me much time after I figured that out! I guess they didn't exactly make it user-friendly for most phone users, but at least it works now :)

  • i didnt figured out since i cant change my phone (yet) and reinstalling do not do the trick. i'll try later and let you know! thanks – lois6b Jul 22 '16 at 7:05
  • oh god, you are a genius, that works wonders! – lois6b Jul 22 '16 at 8:12

It's because your phone is quite old. Either you need to get a new one or reinstall. Then again Pokemon Go does take up a lot of space.

    It's not just about the device's age. My phone is older and quite good at running the game. – dly Jul 19 '16 at 6:46
  • well, could be the age. reinstalling is not a solution. until a new phone, i have to deal with it i guess .. thanks ^^ – lois6b Jul 19 '16 at 6:50

    you could try restoring your phone to fabric status, that for sure will help. I think I will do that myself with my Moto G2 – Mario Garcia Jul 19 '16 at 6:55
