    I have Verizon and mine just started doing this also. Wiped my cache and it seems fine for now.

    My first Note 5 was awesome until I broke the glass over the rear camera. The replacement I received began having the dead spot issue about a week after i received it. My new replacement (my 3rd Note 5) immediately showed the same issue. Not sure what to do.

    After deleting Facebook Messenger the problem immediately went away. I'll post if it returns.

    The problem seems related to the Messenger bubble heads. Disable them and see if the problem persists.

    I've cleared my cache and have been using messenger bubbles. Issues have not returned for a few days now. VZW note 5.

    That's good to know! Which cache did you clear? Partition wipe from recovery or just apps cache from settings - storage?

    Isn't there a dialer number to get into internal settings like the screen? I did one with a S6 and it fixed my screen responsiveness.

    Hey guys, new phone same problem. Phone number 6, problem returned in an hour. Only thing that works is Droid Optimizer, stop Background Apps. The problem comes back but you can fix it with the app without having to reboot phone. Again, I've run the phone barebones and it comes back. I don't know which app it's clearing to make the screen responsive again, but it does work everytime. But I do have to do it from once a day to 5 times. Good luck. Besides this the phone runs like a dream. Also I deleted Nova because it eats too much RAM.

    Nova never eats as much ram as Touchwiz would eat by itself.

    I would show you the screen caps but I'm too tired. With just touchwiz, 1.5 gig free RAM, with Nova, 890mb free.

    Hmm... I'm actually commenting on this thread because someone with a Nexus6 said to have had the same problem.
    Just go ahead and clear the cache partition from recovery, you guys'll be ok.

    I use Nova, always have and I am experiencing the same Upper Left Corner Issue! I have been trying to pay attention and track when it works vs not, to find the CULPRIT, whether it be a Third-Party App, a Software malfunction, Mechanical Issue OR if simply my 'Finger Taps' are just too much to handle! 😎
    I purposefully will work solely from one App, closing all others, (that I am able & aware of anyway) and it hasn't made a difference.

    *I did read on another Forum that Messenger was the cause. They said they Uninstalled it and it seems to be working. Has anyone else tried that? Or any other removals that seem successful??

    Thanks,
    Tarka

    The issue has been detected and the only viable work around has been to disable the Facebook messenger app. Facebook has not updated the app as I'm typing this. Once the messenger app is updated (current date is Dec 14th) then I would recommend you reinstalling and see if the problem returns.

    For some people just disabling the chat heads in Facebook Messenger fixed the problem. Worth a try.

    Is that what you did? I never had chat heads enabled on my N5 and so I don't believe it was the problem for me. I did try using it with chat heads working a few days ago and the problem was there. The only thing that has worked for me has been to disable the messenger app..which I actually liked a lot, and I do check every day to see if they have updated it. (Messenger app)
