    Misread of Touch

    Hi, I've been having difficulties playing Clash of Clans on my iPhone. This isn't any technical problems but the problem is, since the iPhone screen is huge, the proximal phalanx of my both hands are touching the screen. Thus, whenever I'm checking my profile, typing the tag of the clan or my friends, etc. It'll keep reseting the screen back to the home/builder base when my proximal phalanx touches the screen by accident. Additionally, when I'm attacking, it'll misread where I'm tapping so it'll place the troops in the unintended area. (Mostly the top corners)

    Please fix this problem if you can. Thank you.

    I Clash with my hands. I keep my device well away from both my proximal phalanxes.

    I'd recommend you do the same, problem solved.

    For anyone else reading this, the proximal phalanx is a bone in your foot.

    I'm not sure the op used the correct term. However, it also sounds like the op wants the game to ignore accidental touches. How in the world it's supposed to know which are accidental and which are intentional is beyond me.

    Proximal Phalanx can be your foot OR hand.

    I couldn't stop laughing after reading the iPhone screen is so large.

    I agree with Piper139, there's no real way to determine if a touch is intentional or not.

    Sorry OP. There are far bigger mobile devices with far larger screens. Personally I think smaller screens are far more prone to your issue. You will need to alter your grip.

    Not quite. Phalanx is the singular of phalanges, which refer to the bones of your fingers and toes. The term proximal refers to "closer to the body" while distal refers to "away from your body". Your fingertips are your distal phalanges, next closest bones are middle phalanges, while those that connect to your hand (that are closest to your body) are your proximal phalanges. A normal human has 20 proximal phalanges, one in each finger and toe.

    Well I had to Google it in the first place, it was all about foot injuries!

    On further inquiry, it would appear that we also have proximal phalanxes in our palms. Beats me why you didn't just say palms in the first place.

    Clash on, or maybe not.

    Idea just place your device flat on a table or in a stand. This way you can play with just your finger tips.😉

    I have a phone case with a rubber loop in the back. It’s good for adding tension or simply curling a finger around to keep your phone secure in one hand when playing a landscape-view game. The downside is it’s impossible to lie flat since it acts as a bouncy stand. It might solve your problem if you like holding your device while playing.
