(android 6/7) disable touchscreen input smoothness effect?

so i just upgraded from an old lg optimus 4x hd phone (android 4.0.3) to a new xiaomi redmi 4 prime (android 6.0.1) and what is annoying me most is a strange software effect filtering all input motion from the touchscreen. I have uploaded 2 Videos of the Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime and LG Optimus 4X HD which in comparison should clearly show what i mean with "touchscreen input smoothness effect":


At 0:00-0:37 (and especially at VNC Viewer test 1:21-1:53) you can clearly see how the Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime creates some kind of a "smooth-scroll-effect", it continues scrolling very slowly, even though the finger has already stopped moving. This clearly must be a software effect, i cant imagine a hardware problem.

At 0:37-1:21 and 1:53-2:36 you can see, how much the touchscreen has got an input travel almost like the steering wheel of a car, smaller up/down/left/right movements are just being ignored and filtered out. Also here i can only very hardly imagine that this is a hardware issue, for me it clearly looks like a software effect.

is there any way to disable the touchscreen motion smoothness filter effects and make the touchscreen input to be direct like it was in previous android versions like android 4.0.3? (If necessary, i also agree to root/unlock or install a custom rom on my Xiaomi phone)
