    I feel like the screen response is s bit wonky on the G6.
    I'll tap something sometimes and nothing. I have to make sure I give it a good tap square on whatever I'm aiming at.
    Sometimes it will scroll a bit instead of activating. And it's not just with one handed use either.
    Maybe I'm just not used to it yet. But my last phone (G4) was very responsive.

    Anyone???

    Just to be sure -- no screen protector, right?

    Or any apps that might cause it to be wonky?

    Do you have a screen protector on your device? Sometimes lower quality protectors can cause response issues. I have one but experience no response or touch lag issues.

    Funny you should bring this up, mine has been fine until two days ago, but its been kinda hit or miss since then, I just chalked it up to some random something that will pass . . ..

    No funky apps - yes screen protector.
    It's a Pleson screen protector and I have been using them for years with zero issues.

    Have you rebooted the phone? This often fixes random issues.

    I have not - honestly since i've had the phone for less than a week I didn't even think of that.

    I do - rarely used but have it.
    Should I delete it? Made sure it's closed?

    Are you having touch issues in just a certain part of your screen? If not, it sounds like it could be your screen protector.

    It's not in a particular spot - i guess I should take the screen protector off and see if it's still an issue.
    I'm not saying this is a manufacturing issue but I've had many phones in my lifetime and this one just seems different regarding touch response.
    Maybe it's just my fat fingers - LoL

    On the G6? No....

    But LG has had a long history of phones with less than desirable touch performance. Both the G3 and G4 had touch issues, worse so for my wife, who sort of had a love hate with her G4 and was always complaining about the touch response. From some people I've talked to, the G5 wasn't exactly world leading in that category, either.

    But my wife's G6 is actually quite good... so... I can only assume that the problem you are having isn't a systemic problem.. so there's a chance that there is something you can do to fix it .

    That's strange cause I just had a G4 for 2+ years and never a problem.
    I think it's the new screen ratio - maybe stretching the screen is messing with it.

    It's not relegated to the keyboard but it seems like it happens all over at random times.
    Who knows maybe you just need to be a little more precise where you tap - maybe before the area that reads the touch was bigger and you didn't need to be right on the spot - kinda like a wireless charger??

    For me, part of it is that everything on this screen is tinier, so I do need to be more precise about where I touch. But it doesn't feel abnormally insensitive.

    Maybe you can try another phone in a store just to make sure you don't have an actual issue with yours.

    Thanks - did that. It's the same - so it's not the phone.
    I'm convinced it's the new screen ratio.
    I don't think it's a major problem - I just started this post to see if anyone else noticed it or if I was just losing my mind :-)

    Hmmm odd. Now that i see this thread i think i might have a similar issue, i do have what seems to be a glass protector on it's front which i assume could explain it, either that or i'm going crazy (which to be fair might be closer to the truth ahah). Still think the g6 performs better overall than the s8 i had previously. Overall still think it's more responsive on the g6 with animations on .5 everything feels much faster imo.

    I have a glass protector too and don't seem to have an issue, the only thing I notice, which I mentioned is when instagram wants to slow the whole phone down.. I hate it.

    It's been several years since I used a screen protector. I remember on my G3 originally bought a .33 thick tempered glass that I had issues with touch responsiveness. I replaced it with a .2 thick one and had no more issues.

    I am using a glass screen protector and also have touch response issues. It seems to happen every few days. I'll go to touch something, it could be anything, and get no response. I have to stop, focus on touching whatever it is, and try again up to 10 times before getting a response. Things then seem to go back to normal for several days.
