    Default LG G2: Touch Screen Issues?

    I am curious to see if anyone else has been having any touch screen issues such as it being too sensitive or not responding properly?

    Every now and then my phone will go crazy. For example if I'm in a browser and I try to 1 finger scroll up or down i will have random zooming happen or a link gets selected. It just doesn't respond like you would expect it to almost as if it doesn't register your touch gesture correctly. Once it gets into one of these modes the problems persist until i turn off the screen and leave it be for a bit.

    Is your screen clean?
    Had it happen to me last week but fixed it by cleaning the screen off. Greasy fingers.

    This just started happening to me. I noticed it only happens when I have a case on the phone. Probably has something to do with the thin bezels and the case putting pressure on the screen edges.

    My solution was to just remove the case and cycle the screen on/off.

    I am caseless right now, but I did use the flip case for a while when I first got the phone.

    This absolutely happens to me. When I double click to zoom in on a webpage is when it happens. It doesn't always happen, but every now and then. Once it starts going crazy it affects all apps and I just have to restart the phone to be able to use it. I've been thinking about getting a replacement, but if it's a software bug all of them will probably have the same issue...

    Hmm I can't produce this issue at all on mine and haven't seen it. When we post in the G2 general section it may be a good idea to list our version/carrier to see if we can isolate issues down to one particular model.

    That's exactly why I started this thread, haha. I wanted to try and figure out if this is something that could be fixed with a software update or if I should exchange my phone for a new one. It seems like it could potentially be the hardware since there aren't a lot of people that seem to be having this problem.

    I also have to say that I don't remember having this issue until after the software update they pushed last week.

    I had it before the update, so unfortunately that isn't it.

    Just happened to me, and has in the past. For me, they keyboard flakes out. I'll touch a key and it repeats it several times. Sometimes when I scroll it freaks out. I thought it had something to do with static electricity or something. I can't say for sure if it happened before or after the update. I'm on VZW.

    I had the key repeat issue on my original unit - though only on the lock-screen PIN-pad. Returned it for this and other screen-fritz issues, and the new one doesn't exhibit any of the screen issues of the original, including the keypad freak out. Also VZW here.

    Looks like I'll be returning mine then. I can hardly text or browse the web for it. Also getting the screeching on calls. Hope I just got a dud.

    Had it happen to me today for the first time and got my phone on launch day. Screen was way to sensitive. But turned off phone and back on fixed it. On Verizon and never got the update.

    I've had the keyboard issue bad. It seems to be effecting the swype type keyboards and texting for me. If I tap type works good. I've tried swype, swift, and Google keyboards, all with the same issue.

    Unfortunately this is a deal breaker for me to keep the phone. Which sucks as this is a great phone.

    And it appears to only be effecting my text, stock and handcent so far. I swyped this entire message with no issues.

    Here is a example of normal swype message. It doesn't even come close to words.

    Has anyone had issues with a case on the phone. Curious if the screen so close to edges has anything to do with it. Just seeing if case keeps your palm of screen more, just thinking out loud here.

    I can swipe on the forum using tapatalk 4 no issues, but texting has issues, stock or third party, doesn't make sense.

    I am actually having this issue as well and it's intermittent. Is this a software bug or hardware! I'm still in my 14 day grace period. Love the phone, but hate that touch issue!

    Is it just some models, so is there a chance I can return this one and get a functioning one? Or is this a LG G2 issue meaning it effects the most if not all G2s

    Wow, using memo to visualize this issue was really clever.

    It shows exactly what I suspected was going on. Now to try and figure out if this is hardware or software caused. The fact that it doesn't happen all the time gives me hope that its software and can be resolved with a patch. Although with my 14-day window closing soon, I'm not sure i have the luxury of waiting to find out.

    Yikes, combined with the voice quality issues...scary. Software or hardware I wonder.

    I feel like it's software because it doesn't seem to happen in all apps and even when doing the line trick without the transparent memo the lines are straight.

    Meaning when I see the browser or desktop, etc [Transparent mode] and draw the lines, the lines go crazy but when I switch it to the default memo background lines are straight. Interestingly when I return it back to transparent mode the lines go haywire again.

    That is weird vahdyx. Fortunately I don't believe most people are seeing that with their G2s, so there's hope for you. I've never seen it on mine. I even tried duplicating what you did with the notepad since I don't normally draw on the pad. But my lines were perfectly straight with none of the wonkiness you documented in your video. I'm assuming rebooting hasn't solved it either?

    Why not go back to Verizon and see if their demo does it. I'd bet it doesn't based on the many owners here. I'd exchange it. Good luck!

    I have a theory! I'm testing it out now and 10 mins in no wonkiness. I recently got home with my newly replaced G2. Everything was fine for about 2 hours. I didn't want to theme it and do all this work if it was going to fail. Everything seemed a-ok so I went ahead and downloaded all my apps.

    Rethemed it with Nova and used NOx icons and no more then 10 mins in the wonkiness began.

    It then occurred to me that perhaps the issue is Nova so I decided to use the standard theme.

    Its been about 10 or so mins of constant use and no wonkiness. I'm gonna keep it on stock theme and see what happens.
