The Dead Pixels Test and Fix application not only detects the dead pixels on your smartphone but also fixes them. The app is very handy when it comes to dead pixels on your device’s screen. There may be situations when your newly bought smartphone or your older one got dead pixels on your screen. That does not look great because the screen is the center of operation of all our smartphones. Defective pixels are the pixels on a liquid crystal display (LCD) that are not performing as expected. With the help of this app, if you detect any stuck or dead pixels you will be able to try to cure them.
This application will try to use different means for the treatment of stuck pixels. Moreover, it also works for screen burn-in. Dead pixels are sometimes not visible on the screen but can appear while using some application and they fail to reflect the true color. Besides, dead pixels are also caused on the screen due to the impact of drop or shock. However, with the help of this app, you can fix partial sub-pixel defects, stuck sub-pixels, dead or broken (bad) pixels, dark dot defects, bright dot defects, and phantoms (matrix burnup).Download

However, one thing to note is that the temperature, gyroscope, and pressure sensors may not work if it is not supported by your hardware. This is a dedicated sensor testing application and does not feature any other thing. Except, there is a Tool Box within the application that lets you check memory information and test the flashlight. The Sensor Box app for Android only detects changes. It may not show the correct temperature, proximity, light, and pressure values if no changes occur.Download
Another dedicated application that lets you check all the info related to the battery of your device is the AccuBattery app. The app lets you protect battery health, displays battery usage information, and measures battery capacity (mAh) based on science.
