You are my only hope!
I upgraded to KitKat 4.4.2 (Samsung Galaxy S4) and the "touch to answer" is enabled again.
How can I disable this? Even I have Easy Touch Mode "unchecked" it still answers only with tapping.
When I used Android 4.2.2 it was working fine.
Please I need help because I don't want to use this !!!!
I am facing the same problem. When I am getting the phone out of my pocket, it usually answers or cancels the call by the lightest touch. Want that feature disabled without having to do a factory reset. Someone please help.
