    Default I'm amazed!

    I see no mention of a problem that both my friend and I have. We both have to swipe the screen 2, 3 or more times to answer a phone call. His is on Verizon and mine is on AT&T. There's something wrong that the screen swipe is so flawed. I never had that with any other S3 or S4.

    Double check your settings, go into "Settings" > "Display" > "Increase Touch Sensitivity". Not sure if it will help, but hope it does!

    Thanks guys! Cobra's solution worked best. Now I can use either the home key or swipe. Very nice!

    When you touch the answer button slide it to the right

    ^ Yeah, did that as I have in all of my Samsungs. This one is fussy, but linking the answer function to the home button solved it.

    I've noticed the same problem. It seems I have to press and hold the green answer icon for half a second before swiping. Another quirk of the OS, I guess.

    It should be a little harder than just a little swipe. Wouldn't want the phone answer as your pulling it out of your pocket and you slide the screen against your pocket.

    It's not a quirk really, it's an improvement in my mind. It makes you tap and hold for a half second before swiping right to answer thus preventing accidental answering.

    IDK, never had this problem with my S4. Also, I never had a problem with premature answering on my S4,either.

    Sometimes the really savvy developers will tell you your bug is really an enhanced feature.

    Couldn't agree more Frank. People can rationalize all they want, I never had this issue with the S4 and like you, never had an issue with premature answering. This is an issue I'll bet they address.

    It's been that way ever since they introduced the physical home button with the S3.
