touch screen too sensitive

recently got the z2, i dont even have to touch the screen and it assigns the touch so if i hover my finger over an app icon it registers it as a touch and opens the app, when the phone is on charge the touch is a bit hit and miss especial on the tap to wake up.

 

is anyone else experiencing this? also glove mode is off

Problem about the touchscreen's responsiveness.

I just bought my Xperia Z2. It seems like due to "glove mode" . The touchscreen is not very responsive at times. Especially when I placed the phone horizontally on the bed or the table. This is sort of like the same issue that I had with my Xperia SP. Seems like Sony hasn't done anything about this. I really love Sony products, but it is all these little things that disappoint me. Xperia Z2 is a 2014 flagship, I expect better. Sony please do something about this. The responsiveness of the touchscreen is probably the most crucial part of smartphones.

Re: Problem about the touchscreen's responsiveness.

Can you disable glove mode ?

It is more important how others perceive us than how we perceive ourselves.

Re: touch screen too sensitive

You could apply an extra film protector

Re: touch screen too sensitive

Is the glove mode on?

Its floating touch then, you can just hover and it will track and swipe.
