Re: xperia z1 touchscreen problems

I called Sony again reporting the issue on my 6th phone. Their respons was, "this is the first time I've heard of this"

 

I'm starting to think that's what they're trained to say. 

 

I referenced my number on the claim and they read the documents. WHY AREN'T THEY COMMUNICATING. 

 

Well needless to say, I'm done! I will never buy a Sony phone again!

Re: xperia z1 touchscreen problems

I am quite convinced that the problem is software related. When I clean my phone's cache using Clean Master, the problem doesn't show up for a couple of hours, or even days. Or even resetting the phone kinda helps.

Re: xperia z1 touchscreen problems

Same thing here... Hungry Shark Evolution is simply impossible on the Z1. Starting to really miss my S4... Can someone from Sony who administers this forum comment? Perhaps those nice Sony people who introduced themselves on the welcome forum... Extremely poor customer experience so far...

Re: xperia z1 touchscreen problems

Based from my experience, prolonged touch on the screen triggers the problem. Furthermore, it also happens when there is a rapid tapping on the screen.

Touch somewhat overloads and messes up. Temporary remedy is not to touch the screen for a few seconds but WTH? we cant do that since we're playing intense games here.

Re: xperia z1 touchscreen problems

My problem does not need any trigger, it is always there, in the lower part of the screen, just where the last 2 rows of the keyboard are. Strangely, with swype keyboard is not so evident, so it fai from time to time, while in drawind or other aplications, this part of the screen is completely useless.

 

Nevertheless, a strange thing happens, sometimes, when I rub strongly the screen with fabric and I am isolated from ground, it allows me to make one touch in that zone that works, I would say then that if I charge the scrren with static charge  it works until the static is discharged.
