    Angry Phantom screen presses

    Is anyone aware of a fix for phantom touches on the T-Mobile S4 ?
    I've been searching the net, and either there aren't any reports of this for the S4 yet, or I'm using the wrong keywords.
    On my black S4 I'll get the occasional double letter when typing. I use Thumb Keyboard.
    My wife, however, has a white S4 and hers seems to go nuts. She's using the same keyboard, but it still does it with the stock board as well.
    It'll register multiples of phantom presses, not all in the same location either.
    This was a problem for our Sprint SGSIIs.

    Any ideas? Can it be corrected, or does it have to be replaced like the SII?

    The only time this has happened to me is right after I've used my phone and the oils from my face are on the screen it will go nuts. I wipe of the screen and it works fine. I have the white s4.

    My wife is pretty sure she has narrowed it down to being her hand lotion.
