    It works sometimes, then stops until you lock and unlock the phone or press any hardware buttons, then starts working again, stops...

    I too have noticed the hardware buttons helping. It usually doesnt stop working in the middle of using it, but quite often when I take it from my pocket, light up the screen, it won't react. However as soon as I press fe. volume down once, it starts working perfectly. Odd.

    I think it is to avoid accidental unlock. Since the screen is sensitive, the screen could unlock itself by a simple touch of your clothes even if it's in your jean.

    I noticed that it works awful at 8 AM when it's still slightly dark but works most of the time when it's very bright outside.

    Is this light sensor tweak issue?
