    Default LG G3 Touch screen issues

    I have an AT&T G3, black. Has anyone noticed occasional dead spots on the screen where touch isn't working? Doesn't happen every time but when it does, hit usually corrects itself when I shut the screen off and turn it back on. Mine happen towards the tip of the super right corner and around the middle on the right edge. I have a Bodyguardz tempered glass screen protector on it that I bought from AT&T. Could that be the issue?

    Just poked mine all over and no problems. Don't have a screen protector on mine. Have you tried soft reset or is that what you're referring to above?

    Have u tried calibrating the screen, I do not have the G3 so I'm not entirely sure where to find settings for calibrating. Display possibly.

    Yes, I've noticed this too, and find tapping/pressing harder fixes it. I have the same phone, carrier, glass screen protector and even same color as you.

    Maybe that screen protector. I had one on my S5 and hated it

    I might take off the screen protector and see if that helps.

    I'm not sure this screen protector can be reused.

    The screen not always responding is minimal, and the protector is great, so the benefit outweighs the "cost", assuming that's the problem. I'm not actually convinced it is.

    I have no screen protector on mine so I don't think that is it!

    I took the screen protector off a few hours ago and it hasn't happened since. Really sucks if that was the reason. Let's see how the rest of the day goes.

    Yep, I've been experiencing this as well and it's annoying to say the least. I do have the BodyGuards glass screen protector on it too. I notice this playing Candy Crush where I can't swipe a candy because the screen is non-responsive at that spot.

    I don't have that phone but I think calibrating or taking the screen protector of would help

    Why use a screen protector? The Gorilla Glass is plenty protection for the screen itself.

    Gorilla glass still scratches and much easier then many think.

    This. Every Gorilla Glass device I have used without a screen protector ended up with many hairline scratches. Some people perceive GG to be scratch proof which it clearly isn't.

    A better quality screen protector will lessen you chances of a broken screen when dropped. I always get a screen protector and case and so far no screen has cracked the hundred of times I have dropped my devices.

    I have been having this issue as well. Got the screen protector from att and had issues.
    So can anyone confirm its the glass screen protector and not the phone.

    I haven't had the issue since I removed the screen protector. So, I'd say that's the reason for it. Pisses me off because I paid $35 for it.

    I think the BodyGuardz screen protector might be too thick. I've had other glass screen protectors and they weren't nearly as thick. I hope it's the screen protector. I don't want the G3 to turn out like the G2.

    @scmurphy13 - I would try to return the screen protector. That's what I'm going to do.

    If you try, let me know how that goes for you.

    I was able to return it today at my AT&T store so you should also. I told them that it affected touch sensitivity.
