    Default Nexus 7: Screen Issue

    Does anyone own the 2013 Nexus 7 without a screen problem? I am very serious, recently bought one and have my 2nd one due on Monday. My 1st one worked great until 4hours into the tablet I couldn't get any response from the screen. Had to reboot to get it working. The more I used it this became the norm. I'm just pissed off, such a great tablet and I didn't hear anything about this issue from any Android website. Maybe I missed it but the more I look the note I see this is a very serious problem. That is why I am asking, does anyone own the new Nexus tablet without this frustrating screen problem.
    Thank You,
    Vinny

    I have no problem with mine. Early production units had an issue with touch sensitivity, but I thought later units fixed the issue.

    I think they ALL have at least some degree of problem with touch on the screen.

    I consider myself lucky as I have a nearly perfect one, but when put down on a table the screen won't register touches at least 75% of the time unless I am touching it with my other hand kind of like "completing the circuit"
    Like I said I think they all have this problem to some degree. Some just take it a step further and have problems even when holding.

    B. Diddy, do you have any loss of touch recognition when device is not in hand?

    Nope. Maybe I'm just lucky! It's always in a case, so maybe I can test it without the case.

    I'm hoping my next one, should be here tomorrow, will be AOK. Too bad such a great tablet and the manufacturer is playing dumb. I called customer assistance, Asus, they said and I quote, "thank you for telling us about this issue" I had informed them of the number of complaints on line about screen issue. Like they never heard about this problem before I had called.
    Thanks again,
    Vinny

    The only issue I have noticed, and its not really a bad thing is when you open an app it has to be a deliberate touch not just a quick tap.

    I would have never have thought that I had any problems with my screen either until on tried to use it while the device was put down on a wooden table and not in my hand.

    I wouldn't really call it a huge problem as I never really use the tablet without holding it in hand, but it IS (at least for me) a defect of some sort.

    Have you tried to use it with device put down on a table and just navigating the screen with one hand?

    I had the screen problem..
    .. these changes fixed it..

    From Settings.. Developer.. then,
    Turn Force GPU rendering off
    Turn Force 4X MSAA on
    Turn Disable HW overlays on
    .. everything else unchecked.

    From Accessibility
    Touch duration = short

    From Runtime..
    Change from Dalvik to ART

    From play store
    Loaded Google Play Launcher

    Not sure exactly why, but the above changes fixed the screen and touch problems.. it flies now.

    No more lag and no more sticky screens.
    Hope it works for you too.

    My screen will act up once in a while, and there's a small amount of bleeding at the top.

    Developer Options are not activated by default. To make them available, go to Settings>About Tablet, and tap Build Number 7 times. This will make Developer Options available, after which you can then turn them on and then change to ART.

    My Screen works fine. But the unit is in a case. Maybe that has something to do with it?

    Some of the answer on here tell me sending my tablet to Asus for service is the right choice. To check if your screen is having any touch issue, lay it flat on a table with only hand hand touching the screen. Don't put it in a case as I find it hides away the problem at times. The dead spots are usually on the edges on the top side of the screen.

    Key words are "at times".
    mine is always in a case and if it hides it, it doesn't do too good a job of it as I have problems if device is out of my hands 90% of the time while in the case.

    I can't imagine it being any worse really.

    once you activate developer options then runtime access for ART is the third from the top.
