I have had the update installed for 4 hours now, so far no issues. It is looking promising, but would still like to know what was wrong.

Side note it seems camera app starts faster too with this update.

Updated my phone, No more problems so far with touch screen.

Tested YAMTT and no real problem, finger no 5 sometimes loses brief contact after long slow circles.

 

I still think the battery gets a little too hot. but no overheating warning..

Re: z5 compact touchscreen acting weird

I have bought my new Z5 compact last week. I have faced the same problem with the screen like the others!

The reboot, the factory backup and other suggested solutions haven't solved the problems.

1. What are the next steps? Is it caused by a software problem, and is going to be fixed by sony updates?

2. Is it better to get back the money (which was not a negligible amount of money!)

Thanks

Béla, to me and a few others here, the latest software update seems to have solved the problem. Please try that.

After installing the latest update with build 32.0.A.5.32 all my problems with touch are gone. The phone seems a lot more responsive, but the camera startup is still sloooow.

Veablo, agree.

The camera is fast once started though Slightly smiling Face (gotta be positive).. There's another thread about the camera in the forum; http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-Z5-Z5-Compact-Z5-Premium/The-camera-app-open-very-slow-edit-sms...

Someone said something about a new camera app coming up in November. Crossing fingers..
