On January 5, I bought my new lumia 620. It's beautiful, I love it very much. But I very very disappoint the response speed of touchscreen. If I move my finger on the screen, the tiles not move immediately. It will start moving about 0.3 seconds later. If I do this on my old lumia 710, tiles will start moving immediately. The response speed of touchscreen of lumia 710 is much more faster than lumia 620. I have tested this on several other lumia 620 phones, all of them are just the same. I think there is some problem on the firmware of lumia 620. The response speed of touchscreen of lumia 620 shoud be faster than lumia 710, because the hardware of lumia 620 is much more powerful than lumia 710. But in fact, it is much more slower. There are several other lumia 620 fans complained this problem on the Chinese lumia phone forum (Windows Phone). I had wrote a letter to nokia, and hope the firmware updates in the future could solve this problem. I had tested the htc 8s, and the htc 8s didn't had this problem. Any other guys have this problem? Sorry for my poor English.

I actually think its the WP8 itself being somehow slow in scrolling. Before I bought mine, I went to the Nokia Store and tested all including the brand new 820 and 920. Seems like the scrolling is much faster in WP7 than it is in WP8. I don't know whether Microsoft deliberately slow down the scrolling speed in WP8?

If the "Screen magnifier" is turn on, the response speed will become much slower. On other WP8 phones like 920 or 820, if you turn off the Screen magnifier, the touchscreen response speed would be OK. But it is useless on 620. Maybe the screen magnifier was turned on on phones you tested. I had tested htc 8s, which had the similar hardware. And the htc 8s is OK.

that migt be a result from the switch to the W8 NT-kernel. I'd be surprised if there weren't any small differences to the way the devices work. The NT kernel is a functionality powerhouse compared to the Windows CE core that WP7 ran on, maybe the minimally different touch repsonses are part of that change.

Be careful guys, the slow scrolling means the phone might suffer from a multi touch issue. Mine scrolls reaaaly slow yesterday and it lags while scrolling. Sometimes, the kinetic scroll died for some reason. I asked some of my local friends with this phone and it's a symptom that leads to a multi touch issue which is a very well known issue so far with the Lumia 620 here in Malaysia. Not sure if it's affecting others in different country.
One of the member here from Malaysia suffered this issue already. But mine happened for 3 hours and then it's back to normal. Strange...

I wanted to buy this phone, but this issue is the only thing that's putting me off from doing so.
Has anyone tried turning the magnifier off as suggested? Does doing that fix it?
Also, is this problem likely to be hardware or software related?
