But this isn't the case with the Z1 or Z1S, the fault can be provoked, and it can appear in use. We're not talking about a fault that relies on the proper alignment of the stars, we're talking about a fault that comes up all the time.
Also, the type of fault that is it shouldn't happen even when it's provoked. Like the video I posted previously, I was in the screen diagnostics portion of the phone. It failed. Was it provoked? Maybe, but there shouldn't be a way to provoke that fault.
Like the iPhone and the bad reception that depended on how it was held. Yeah, that's a provoked fault, but it's a fault that could also willy nilly pop up. But regardless how it happened, it's a fault that shouldn't have been able to be provoked.

No one is debating the issue doesn't happen in normal use. You're the one making the comment that you don't care about whether it can be provoded or not. Because it is widely accepted that this occurs in normal use, the only way to test it is by provocation.
When this can't be provoked, it will have most likely been solved in normal use.

Okay, so I have flashed the .136 provided by androxyde it's the BAL version. I have to say that the touch problem is greatly reduced in this FW. Tried reproducing it on a flat surface and on my bed (issue appears immediately here on my case) and on my hand. On .290 issue is really there as stated by all users who have this problem
But suprisingly, I have tried reproducing the problem with all the methods and especially swiping and gaming. Guess what? the problem is still there BUT it's really hard to notice and I can play now with my phone and use swype. It seems that the screen has been calibrated in some way. If I had the problem I just lift my finger for a fraction of a second and then problem is gone and will rarely appear again.
I saw it also in touch test and multi touch test. In multi touch test the screen blinks if the problem is occuring but after lifting my finger for a second and touching and swiping again, the problem is gone. I have tried it on my bed since that is my best way and the fastest way to reproduce the problem. Issue is barely there.
All in all the update worked fine for me, I dont know if this is the case for other people. I hope theirs will be fixed too and this fix should be retained in kitkat since this the first time in 3 months that I have used my z1's potential. I hope this helps
I really hope that when we update to kitkat this fix will be retained since this really solved the touch issue.

I just updated to 14.2.C.0.159 - After the initial bootup after installing the update, the screen appeared to be behaving the same way. I rebooted the phone, and the problem appears to have vanished. I'm going to continue testing throughout the day. I really hope this did the trick because I love the phone otherwise.
