    Ever since I got the 8.1 update I have found that the screen is far less responsive to swiping gestures. In particular, if I try to swipe up from the lock screen, it can take two or three swipes to actually work. The same is true when I receive a phone call. I will sometimes have to swipe up as many as three times for it to recognize the gesture. Is anybody else having the same problem? If so, has anybody found a solution?

    Agreed, but 8.1 exacerbated it.

    Swiping for me is fine but sometimes, since 8.1, when I click on icon and long press it, it doesn't register the long press. The touch is recognized cause if I move my finger the screen moves about, it's the icon's context menu doesn't pop up. Anyone have this?

    Does anybody else have a problem answering the phone? It typically takes me 2 to 3 swipes upward to get the phone to answer.

    I have ALL of this. Some of it seems like each of these gestures just takes more of an effort to fully register or complete the gesture, and sometimes it simply doesn't register. I also have the no touch responsiveness around the edges too. I also think that the touch accuracy and responsiveness is just off altogether on this phone.

    That and the slow fingerprint sensor are my two gripes with this phone.

    I'm actually kicking myself because my husband and I got two new xl's on Thursday night. Friday morning I updated to 8.1. I notice that screen response time is lagging and sometimes I have to tap the screen 3 or 4 times before it responds. Swiping doesn't seem to be an issue. The reason I'm kicking myself is because I don't have anything to compare the update to. I should have waited a few days so I knew if I was having any issues only due to the update. I know better. Anyway, I'm coming from an iPhone 6s for the past two years but always used Android in the past. Other than this response problem, this phone is phenomenal and so many upgrades to Android os have been made in the past two years. I'm very happy with this phone so far. ))

    PS... Very fast FPS too. No problems there.

    It is getting harder and harder to answer phone calls. Is there another way to answer a phone call besides swiping up on the screen?

    Swipe has been a little less responsive since 8.1 for me. Answering calls has been less responsive and my battery life has taken a small hit. Hope this all gets fixed soon.

    Those that are not having issues - have you done a factory data reset after 8.1 install? I'm wrestling with the possibility of trying this but I'd rather avoid it if it won't make any difference.

    The only thing I have done is restart the phone after 8.1 haven't had any of the reported issues

    I do notice that my battery will "straighten up" a little after I do a restart.

    I haven't really changed anything on my phone since I got it. No new apps. Only change has been upgrading to 8.1. My battery change is not really significant, just has been noticeable since the last update. I still make it through a day with an overnight charge, just not as much juice left at the end of the day. Main difference I've seen in screen response has been while swiping to answer a call. All else seems fine.

    Not near enough issues to make me even consider switching phones. Just small differences I've noticed since 8.1. Still an awesome phone!

    Yes swiping has been problematic from 8.0. If 8.1 made it worse it wasn't by much. It seems to me if I swipe up too far when answering the phone the swipe gets cancelled. If I swipe up just a bit and let go it works better. I really prefer having the buttons to just answer or decline calls.

    Fingerprint unlock is very fast for me. Dunno why that would be slow for some. Maybe redo your fingerprints?

    I agree with answer and decline buttons for calls. FPS has been pretty flawless for me also. No complaints there.

    i know this is a Pixel 2 forum but just wanted to throw out there that i have Pixel XL and upgraded from N to 8.1 this week and this swipe up multiple times when answering calls is driving me insane. Worked great last week so it's not necessarily hardware specific to the 2. FWIW......
