    Don't know if this was posted before, but I've found out that the screen sensitivity issue is related to screen brightness settings.
    If I switch auto brightness off and set it to medium, then the issue disappears. However, if I set it to high I can reproduce the issue immediately.
    Touch sensitivity in settings is set to normal.

    whoa, you may be on to something. turned off autobrightness and set it to medium, so far have not had a mistap or misswipe in the past 15-20min of use. interesting...

    edit: spent another 5 min without a swipe turned tap. turned autobrightness back on, and instantly launched an app when I tried to scroll on the start screen.

    seems more and more like this is a software issue, not hardware. whew!

    Also, did few minutes testing and didn't notice any false taps. I'm so thankful to you!

    Well, working for me.
    Maybe there are some other parameters involved, that's why I posted touch sensitivity setting.

    Since day 1, I turn off auto brightness and set it to medium. However, I am still experiencing sensitivity and random brightness issue.

    How is your glance feature set up? My is at Peek mode and switching brightness to medium helped me. Works well for few hours already. I believe there were some talks this setting also might have influence to touch sensitivity

    Btw, this doesn't look like a screen issue to me. It looks more like processor or performance issue but it's mostly visible when scrolling. Maybe that's the reason why different people have different causes and symptoms (like screen dimming)
    However, setting brightness to medium works for me, and putting it to high immidiately brings the issue back.

    I only had it infrequently, but had it. What fixed it was turning off sunlight visibility features and auto brightness, while still brightness high

    Have to admit issue isn't completely gone after setting brightness to medium. It is much much better but still false taps happen...

    It's working on mine too but I don't want to have to switch myself between low and medium. Meduim is way too bright in house in evening times.

    Since mine is not bad, I switched back to auto brightness. Can't be bothered switching myself medium to low to high. Too annoying. Probably more than false taps :(

    I have been trying different settings to fix that over sensitivity (miss touches) and I think that the best workround is disable sunlight readability ... if you have a big problem with over sensitivity, just try does it help you (well, it is just workround until Nokia or MS will have an update fix for that) ....

    Did the latest update of access point change anything for you? My phone was just updated and seems better. Might be just me thinking it's better as what have access point to do with swiping/tapping :)

    I don't want to make any statements after last time I thought extras+info update helped sensitivity issue but after updating this access point thing I'm using my phone for few hours and don't have any sign of the issue...

    Update: it improved but I still have occasional problems. Much less then before, though.

    WindowsMania.pl reports that Nokia is pushing out a firmware update for the handset which brings it to 1028.3562.1402.00xx in EU and 1028.3534.1347.2001 in US.
    If i see this correctly, the US firmware is the same that I've had on my phone since the December firmware update, which did nothing to help my phone.
