    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?

    Is it actually a real problem that scrolling is 0.3 seconds 'slower'? Doesn't really sound like a dealbreaking 'flaw'

    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.

    A little exaggeration, but you can notice the slower.

    No, mine didn't have the magnifier on. Always turn it off because I never use it. But it's not the only 620 that act like that, the 820 and 920 also act the same and obviously they run on WP8. Devices that run on WP7 were very smooth. I don't know, never tried the HTC 8S yet but I'm starting to think it's a WP8 problem. However, does it really matter though? Sure, it is slow and very noticeable but as long as it didn't make me want to throw the phone away, that's fine though. Haha! :p

    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.

    I don't see this as a legitimate concern. You knew going in that it was a value phone, not a performance phone. I have no issues with it. Perhaps just scroll slower. ;)

    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...

    Mine not just lag but the kinetic scroll also died. I have to lock and unlock the phone, then it's back to normal. It happened again today, just a couple of times and then never. I think this is an on-and-off issue... Will keep you guys updated. I may post a video when it happen again and let you guys see the problem.

    I never realized this. My Lumia 920 is "slow" to the initial scrolling gesture. There's an perceptible delay in the slide of my finger and the scrolling initiation. Once the scrolling is in motion, then everything is smooth and response. Apparently, this setting was ON. After turning it OFF, the scrolling is much better now. My brother who used my phone briefly made the same comment about the initial delay, and I told him the WP7.5 scrolling response was super smooth. It was annoyed thinking that MS need to optimize WP8 some more.

    I had the same issue when I played with one in an O2 store today. I uploaded a video of it in the Lumia 620 review in forums on here. Very slow response on the scrolling and it wasn't my swiping

    920 is OK, but useless on 620, annoying.

    I think Nokia should do something to fix it in the future. I had tried the HTC 8s, and it's OK.

    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?

    Many thanks.
