    No. The UI is to my satisfactory. I'm not big on root unless it's carrier branded. Been since the Nexus One I had an unbranded phone.

    for me that happens when my fingers are wet and leave streaks of water (sometimes almost impossible to see) on the screen, sweat from my pockets (yes it really is that hot in Tokyo) or sweat/grease from ears after a phonecall, etc.

    Sony made the screen REALLY sensitive on this one, even without Glove Mode. When that happens, try wiping the screen and see if it continues.

    It's definitely water, it happens to all Z2 phones I think. Smidgets of water confuse the screen and makes it go haywire.

    Haven't really had it on my phone, but my tablet Z does it all the time. Frankly, the tablet Z sucks. Flickering when the keyboard is up, screen jumping about everywhere: these make the tablet almost unusable. Shame, because it would be brilliant without these problems. I can believe some people may see the phone behaving like this too.

    it's not a constant issue with my phone thankfully, but when it does happen very annoying. i just ordered the z2 tablet last night so i hope there are no issues there
