    I have a dead spot on my Nexus 4.
    I'm wondering if anybody can see if it's hardware related or if there's something I can do.
    Here is a screenshot of the dead spot, I used Screen Touch Test by Cheapskate Productions.
    As you can see the problem is the horizontal strip of the screen at the top not registering touch input.

    Without having the phone in my hand it's just guessing, but it looks like a bad digitizer. (Replacing the digitizer [lots of labor] and replacing the entire screen [a lot less labor, but more hardware cost] usually come close in price, so check and decide.)

    Thanks for your reply! I feared it might be the digitizer, was really hoping it wasn't. :/
    I suppose I should start looking around for solutions then.
