    Hi all,

    I've got a Lumia 1320 that is extremely inaccurate when I use a screen protector. It always types multiple letters of the same letter at once when I only tap it once, or with WP8.1 swype, it separates the trails every two letters which gets very annoying. Registers touches as swipes, swipes as touches, etc. Really annoying. Any fixes other than removing the screen protector?

    Thanks,
    Kenneth

    What type of screen protector are you using. Try removing it and see if the problem still persist(clean the screen after removing screen protector)

    NO screen protector works fine. I used a Nilkin Tempered Glass protector for 1320, used NuThink Privacy Protector, used a few generic clear ones (which worked ok). Already tried cleaning the screen and what not. Works perfectly w/o it.

    Reminds me of the horror of my 1520's super sensitive screen. I couldn't type a thing without fixing one word or another...and apps opening up all the time..I was never before so thankful for the update that repaired this issue. Now, no problems. I wonder if this issue is related when using a screen protector. If only our (you and I) had Guerilla Glass 3 instead of G2 which is 50% thinner than G1 resulting in cracks on such a large screen. Not enough structural support for such a thin display screen stretched over a large expanse.

    I've got the same problem. I'm using a plastic screen guard.

    When I type "hello" it's always like "heeello" or something like that.

    I am faced with the EXACT problem. I have recently purchased my 1320 and typing was excellent. But after putting on a screen guard, the alphabets repeat (ex. whyyy are yyyou calllling?) with annoying frequency.
    Is there any way out? I am keen to use a screen guard to prevent unwanted scratches on my 1320. My wife has had no such problem typing on her lumia 625 with a screen guard.

    Kindly assist.
    Thanks.

    Just remove the plastic screen protector. see: FAQ - FAQ - What to check if the touch screen is not responding on my Lumia 1320 phone? - Nokia - UK
    Gorilla Glass is tough enough to resist most wear and tear anyway. Tough as Gorillaz!

    Hey there,

    yesterday I received my Nillkin glass protector and I do have problems, too. I removed the glass as the phablet is not useable anymore.

    UPDATE:'Updating' my Lumia 1320 with the latest firmware has solved the touch sensitivity problems. Keyboard is working just fine with my screen guard installed.
