    Hi,

    My Galaxy Note 4 has an issue I've yet to see or read anything similar.

    It's basically operating itself without being touched. I've done a quick video to show what it does.

    It's unable to be used because of this fault.

    Has anyone else had this fault?

    You can paste the link and just remove the youtube.com part. That way it won't show up as a link, just text.

    The only time I've seen something like that happen is when the touch sensitivity is set to high (for use with gloves) and there's too much wind around.

    How would you like if someone judged you for touching yourself...

    I had the screen sensitivity set to the high setting for about an hour. Insane. It was doing all sorts of stuff all by itself. I even turned it over, face down, and it somehow desk-dialed my bank's auto-teller. Even with the sensitivity set to "normal", the screen is super, super sensitive. I like it that way but dang, it gets to be annoying sometimes.

    I've never had that sensitive, I've had where my Palm activates stuff on the side when swiping. It is more sensitive then the note 3. Yours I would take in and get it replaced.

    If your phone is touching itself, maybe you need to buy it a girlfriend lol

    Where do you change the sensitivity setting for the screen? Thanks

    Settings> Device> Display and Wallpapers> Increase touch sensitivity.

    It is also one of the options in the notifications panel. I guess so you can add it to the slider during the winter.

    It would have been really freaky if it dialed 666 666 666 the number of the devil!

    That doesn't seem right, especially if it's indoors. Like I said, the only way I've seen it do something similar it's if it's windy/humid outside and the wind is hitting it DIRECTLY with the high-sensitivity screen mode. If you dial it down, even with the wind it still doesn't do it.

    Also, water droplets might trigger touch input reactions, but it doesn't seem like it's raining in that video hehe

    Strange. Have you tried using a different keyboard? Just out of curiousity. I wonder if it's the Samsung keyboard app. I'm sure you've tried the hard reset option.

    This issue was straight out of the box, as you can from the initial setup on this video

    How to fix the issue:

    1. Open Device Settings
    2. Place phone on a table face up
    3. Throw holy water at phone while screaming, "the power of Christ compels you!"
    4. Repeat until phone spews pea soup.

    Honestly it could be fingerprints mixed with too high sensitivity. I've had my phone press buttons because of fingerprint smudges. But not nearly as much lol.

    I unfortunately have the opposite effect, where your phone operates itself I have an area of the screen which is unresponsive to touch completely, just above the numbers in portrait mode and halfway through the keyboard in landscape

    The only thing that works is the pen which honestly is hardly used in general use

    any ideas on that???

    I’ve had the same problem and it’s super annoying. I had the high setting on for about a minute too. I am glad I’m not the only one! If my dog walks by and his tail swish NEARBY the thing turns on, screens open for no reason, I can’t get notifications to turn off. I’m very frustrated with the phone.

    I've had this happen on two different devices - a Palm Pre phone and Asus TF700T tablet - and in both cases it was a hardware fault (digitizer failure) requiring repair (new digitizer).
