    Hi guys, (I hope this is the right section/first thread)

    Recently I realize that when I'm charging my phone (Nexus 4 via usb with my laptop in this case), my screen will act weird and the swipping on the screen is not smooth and its very hard to type on the screen. My friend has the same problem too.

    Anyone else having the same problem?

    Occasionally I have noticed a slight flicker of the screen when I scroll with it on the charger. Doesn't do it all the time though.

    That happened to me once, but simply switching the phone off and on again fixed it. Hasnt happened again since.

    Are you using a third-party launcher (Nova, for example)?

    As for charging via USB with your laptop, please note that this is only just barely acceptable. Your laptop/PC's USB ports put out only 500mA, just 41% as much current as the stock charger. It is barely enough power to --slowly-- charge your phone while it is powered off and, as has been reported here before, not enough power to keep the phone from losing charge if it is actually in use while connected.

    Low quality or faulty chargers can mess with the digitiser and cause it to behave unpredictably - try using the mains one you got with it instead
