    I was having same issue with over sensitive touchscreen on the new Galaxy S7 edge. I almost returned it, but called tech support. Here was their suggestion that worked for me.

    1. Go to Settings>>Application>>Application Manager>>More>>Show system apps
    2. In Application Manager, Go to TouchWiz Home>>Storage>>Tap on Clear Data
    3. Do the same for TouchWiz Easy Home
    4. Go to Settings>>Application>>Application Manager>>More>>Reset App preferences>>Reset

    Note that this will reset your home screen to default, but after this, my overly sensitive touchscreen problem went away. The accidental clicks were way less frequent (still happens from time to time though).

    Hope this helps others.
    This worked well

    I have a screen protector and now it's not sensitive enough... tapping multiple times to type this comment. Super frustrating! They took away features from s6. Including lower megapixels on camera, no ir blaster, and just less customization features.. seems Samsung look 2 steps back... guess I'll consider other options, I liked the galaxy's because they weren't I phones..but
    now it's getting harder to tell the difference.

    The problem is the Touchwiz launcher. My phone was over-sensitive as well, instead of scrolling I triggered clicks all the time. I installed Trebouchet launcher (unfortunately it isn't in the app store, you have to download the apk) and everything works perfect. No false clicks, even inside applications like Firefox. It may work with other launchers as well, I just tested Trebouchet and liked it (it's the former launcher of Cyanogenmod).

    download touch protector
    install blah blah blah
    go to "SHAKE"
    turn "SHAKE UNLOCKING" off
    make sure Shake locking is ON
    then, Skake SENSITIVITY must be set to .2 (very sensitive)

    essentially telling your phone to lock by shaking very easily, but not allowing your phone to be unlocked by shaking.

    ...you can unlock by pressing the volume UP button.

    Tap Language and Input. Scroll to the very bottom of these settings and tap pointer speed. I have seen sevreal default speeds, none over %50. Increase the slider to make the touch screen more sensitive and easier to tab. Decrease the slider to make it less sensitive.
