Re: xperia z1 touchscreen problems

I have ordered 2 times the Z1 repair touchscreen they have updated the software 2 times but still fails in the same place and doing the same mistakes because thats not a problem of software thats a problem of hardware.
I had to buy a second phone from china to have a phone that functions. By my surprise that phone works better than the Z1 but without these super-cameras, but mostly smoothly.
I take up the phone this morning and tomorrow i carry again to repairs for 3 and last time because its make the same fails.
I do not understand how these phones with this price have failures in touchscreen and not immediately change the touchscreen as the repairs carried thereby.

I have had the touch screen replaced, and it didn't fix the problem either...

Re: xperia z1 touchscreen problems

I made a few days ago a full reset (internal data included) on my Xperia Z1 with latest update (14.2.A.1.136) and the problem is still there.

 

BTW, did you know that Xperia Z1 has this kind of touch functionality?

Re: xperia z1 touchscreen problems

So, could enabling that stylus feature solve the touch issue, since the Z1 is programmed not to detect specific inputs? Maybe the screen misinterpret some finger touches as pencil touches, which could be the reason behind this annoying malfunction..?

There are any z1 that doesn't have this problem? Is worth to go on service with my z1? I don't want to waste my time without solving the problem.

Re: xperia z1 touchscreen problems

My touchscreen has been fine untill I updated to 14.2.A.1.136

I press a keyboard letter and the letter 2 spaces away is selected ... its getting impossible for me to type messages.

I haven't read through all 42 pages on this thread, but is this what people are getting  ?

No, You had a specific problem. You try to factory reset your phone?

Factory reset doesn't solve the problem...
