Thanks for your quick replies.
@viridis thanks for your quick response.
@Jonyny It happens everywhere, and in two different models. But it's not easy to detect, you need to make really small movements, and the slower the better. If I wouldn't play games, probably it wouldn't worry me at all, I wouldn't even notice the issue.
Regarding the comparison with the XZ1, I will try to record it tomorrow. The XZ1 is not my device, my colleague from work owns it. Seeing that the XZ1 works properly gives me some hope that it will be fixed, I truly like the phone.

As you can see in the video, I'm trying to draw tiny circles on the screen. The galaxy s8 detects those small and fine movements. The XZ2 detects those as a straight line. Only tiny and delicate movements are undetected, this will not prevent you from operating the device normally, but will impact your performance when doing things like selecting text, gaming, etc.

I won't be able to record a video comparing both devices, because I don't have the XZ2 anymore. I discovered a dead pixel so I decided to return it right away.
I can assure you there's no screen sensibility issue with the XZ1. If we compare the devices overall, I think the main advantage of the XZ2 is the screen. The XZ1 has a good screen, but looks dull and dark in comparison. In the XZ2 is impressive (both in the Compact and regular models). Still software is identical, performance is better in the XZ2 but equally impressive in both. I didn't test the camera but it's supposed to be better in the XZ2 (hardware wise they are the same).
When it comes to design, it's a matter of taste, I like both.

I experience these sensitivity issues when dragging sliders, for instance adjusting Icon Size or Column Number in custom launchers and stuff. Making fine adjustments is impossible, you kinda have to drag the slider quickly, or further than you want it to to get the slider to "activate" and become sensitive for a short time before it becomes "sticky" again.
