    Hi guys

    I have moved from iPhone to a note 4 and loving it!

    I was just wondering if anyone has found the touch screen occasionally doesn't respond to their touch and you have to touch it again. On the iPhone it only ever missed a touch if my finger was in the wrong place, but it never happened on the keyboard. Every so often maybe 5/6 times a day I touch a key on the keyboard and nothing happens, when I try again it's fine. I can't reproduce it, because when I tap anywhere on the keyboard something gets pressed. I was just wondering if this was normal?

    Hope you are enjoying your phones!!

    No one else experienced this? It happens about once or twice an hour, but is really bugging me

    This happens to me when I try to answer an incoming call. It takes 4 or 5 tries to get the touch to register. I have had the call go to voice mail a couple of times because the touch wouldn't register. I have the touch sensitivity set to high. Otherwise, no other issues.

    I have factory reset my phone today and not downloaded any apps, so we will have to see if it fixes it.

    As I am typing it has just done it twice, so I guess a factory reset has not helped

    This used to happen on my Galaxy Note 3. I could never figure out why. So far this problem has not manifested itself on my new Note 4. Touchwood.

    You could also use another keyboard since you said it is happening when you're typing. I use SwiftKey and haven't noticed an issue with touch screen response.

    I had an issue like the one you've described. However, my phone didn't register the touch when i tried to unlock. I tried taking the phone out of battery saver mode. That seemed to make all the difference.

    I just switched from the note 3 to the note 4 and I'm similarly having a bunch of touchscreen issues. The keyboard registers the wrong keys. I've never had so much trouble typing! I'm usually a whiz typer. I I tried the Google keyboard, and Samsung keyboard and SwiftKey and I eventually have issues with all three. I disabled power saving mode as someone suggested, and but have noticed a relief from my typing woes. Have people been contacting their carrier or Samsung? The more people contact them, and the more they will look at finding a fix.

    It happens to me, it's really hard to unlock the lockscreen, is like a bug in the touch, for example, if I touch in the bottom sometimes it register like i touch the bottom and the middle part, it's like super sensitive, any clue on how to resolve this issue?

    I've had the same issue to a degree. I unlocked a note 4 SM-N910T. Before and afterwards all areas of the screen were working perfectly. I flashed TWRP using Odin, worked fine. Accidentally wiped delvik and formatted sdcard and then rebooted. Since then the touch screen works, but the contact point of my finger doesn't match the needed function. However, the S-Pen works on the screen perfectly for all functions. I've installed the Samsung stock ROM twice to no change for the positive. Seeing that the pen works flawlessly and the finger does not. I'm lost on how to offer a solution or find one to share.

    Same problem here... It either doesn't respond to touch at all or responds to the wrong part of the screen. S-pen works perfectly, though.
    Anyone have any solution for this? Can't send it back, need to find a way to make it work, it's brand new.
