Xperia SP Display Problem!

All SP owners please check this in your phone as well.

I'm having problems with my sp's display when the phone is kept on horizontal surface.

In the video,  phone is kept on the bed and i'm trying to use it. But you can see  the screen just misses the touch :/ I wonder why.

This only happens when the phone is kept horizontally.

Ps: screen guard is not the problem since I checked with 2 different guards and phone works perfectly in hands.

PS2 > The screen works fine while phone is put to charging.

Re: Xperia SP Display Problem!

Found another similar video. This only happens when kept on a table or a bed.

Re: Xperia SP Display Problem!

Re: Xperia SP Display Problem!

I try to describe the probem with display on my device.

When the phone is on the horizontal surface and I don't touch the metal edges and then I would like to touch the screen the display don't respond the touch sometimes.

But! When I do the same with touching the metal edges and with other hand I try to touch the screen, the display respond the touch without any problems.

Re: Xperia SP Display Problem!

slimshaddy, if the screen works fine while the phone is put to charging, then I guess it's caused by software bug/glitch? have you tried to restart the phone?

Re: Xperia SP Display Problem!

Hi, I just tried to recalibrate the G-sensor and it seems that the display issue is gone !

I did it with app "GPS Status & Toolbox" from google play.
