How to Calibrate Your Smartphone Sensors

Sensors, those little-ignored components that are far more important than we think. These sensors make possible most of the most used functions of our smartphone and even the energy saving of our smartphones. Let’s see how to calibrate and keep your smartphone sensors in good condition.

In games, motion sensors are the protagonists in titles such as Asphalt 8 or Real Racing 3. The proximity sensor saves us a lot of battery when turning off the screen when we are talking on the phone or when measuring the light to calibrate the brightness according to the light conditions.
From time to time, for some unknown reason, the sensor stops working as it should, so before deciding that it has failed we will try to re-calibrate it, often the problem is fixed.

Check if your sensors work

As we said, sensors are fundamental to many of the core functions of the phone, but they can stop working properly. In some cases, the problem is that the application using a particular sensor does not correctly interpret the data. To know, all you have to do is download another app that uses the same sensor and checks if it works. For example, if in the Asphalt 8 the car does not respond to your movements, try Real Racing 3.
It is not always as simple as trying another application, sometimes it is necessary to go to the depths of our smartphone and check that the sensors are taking action with some of these applications:
In some cases, such as Sony terminals Xperia family (such as Xperia Z3, for example), there is quite a diagnostic tool by hand. In  Settings> About phone> Diagnostics, or run the application from the application drawer. If you go to the tab Test, you can check the operation of each of the functions separately or run a full diagnosis.
For other devices, we have another option to test the functioning of the sensors in the hidden menus of your terminal. To do this, go to the phone book and enter a specific number. Android has its secret codes to access each of these settings, but some secret codes change depending on the manufacturer. In them, you can check the functionality of both your sensors and other elements such as the camera, the screen or the sound in different ways.
We have the code * # * # 4636 # * # * to access the status information of various components and usage statistics. In Xperia devices also we have the code * # * # 7378423 # * # *, where  Service tests you can see if the items displayed are working properly.

Calibrating sensors

It may not be necessary, but you want to make sure it is correctly calibrated, or maybe it does not work, and you want to run this function to check that it is not broken. Whatever your reason, some of your sensors can be calibrated, but that depends on both your terminal and Google Play.
In some LG devices from the  LG G2, they have the ability to calibrate the motion sensor from Settings> General tab> Movement. You should only heed your instructions, and within a couple of seconds, your sensor is calibrated. Not all brands have the ability to calibrate some of your sensors, such as Sony, so it is best to go to Google Play in search of an application that is able to calibrate that sensor you want to recover. If not, there is a slightly more extreme way, which is to reset to factory data, which usually recalibrates all sensors automatically.
Root users between ROM`s cooked, modules Xposed and other apps for these users, they still have more options to customize and control sensors smartphone, but anyway we invite you to share the methods you follow to diagnose and Calibrate your sensors. Do you use any third party application? Does your ROM include some calibration options?
