    Well 4 days now and no screen issue, so thats sorted for me...though many are stick stuck with this crap issue.

    Just need them to tweak the camera now :-)
    Good to know that you're no longer having that issue. The reason, apparently, many are stuck with the issue still is the staggered rollout of this update.

    Once everyone has it I expect reports on it to start dropping quickly.

    Worked for me, but it seems hit and miss for others, some work for a day or so, some still have issue right after the update.

    This draws me to HW issue, some having it worse than others so the update works with different degrees of success, if it was just software all would have same results after the update....though I am keen to find out if anyone had the issue very bad, but after the update it was fixed.

    It could also be other settings like glance, normal sensitivity etc that caused the firmware to work for some but not all. Anyway, I just got an update for my HK variant, not in form as a firmware update, but an update in market place specifically called "touch". The descriptions says its used to support high sensitivity touch when using a glove, I guess this should be essentially the touch fix. I just got this update so I'm yet to confirm whether this is the fix for me or not

    Sorry just read the news article, the touch update was in fact for something else.

    For me this touch update seems to have fixed the issue. Keep my fingers crossed. Scrolling feels complete different now.

    I have feeling that "Touch" update fixed it ... no single mistake tap after update. I am using high sensitivity with auto brightness and double tap and glance always on (with glance background too) ...

    I'm thinking this too. I had the problem only infrequently, but some apps were worse than others for it. Since I did the touch update, I can't get it to happen. Way to go Nokia!

    I seemed to be a lucky one and not have this swipe/tap issues others were having. But receiving the update this morning its cool to see nokia can push updates out like that without having to wait for s***ty at&t to move with the updates is nice to know. Also after updating I didn't notice any change in my screen usage, so I'm assuming it was a fix for others. At least some others.

    Did you had this issue before?
    Every day i come here and reade some thread that doesnt encourage me much to buy the 1520. Has ive said, i have the Note 2 and never had problems. I want to try WP but, spend almost a month salary and then receive a bunch of problems its not that good. Some have white spots on screen, others speaker that make weird sounds, screen issues tap/swipe...
    Dont know what to do. Play safe and buy Note 3 or take a chance on the 1520.
    I really think that WP 8.1 will bring good things but, thats it dont know wich one to buy.

    I'm beginning to wonder if that Touch update helped too... After forcing it on my RM-840, the issue has only happened a couple of times, more of a rare occurrence vs a the most inopportune of times. One of the issues I could do is hold my finger on the keyboard, while typing a web address in, and it would start repeating the letter, doing very weird things. I had that happen once, then it abruptly stopped and didn't happen again after a retry, almost as if the phone is learning the issue, but I may be reading into this too much.

    I just turned glance and double tap to wake back on, so I'm still on the fresh end of this update, but usually it's driven me crazy by this time.

    Yeah, I had that problem too ... but it was managable ... well, it is nothing new that there is some bugs in the new generation products like Lumia 1520 - it is just the same with computer stuff, like mainboards and display adapters and even with Intel and AMD processors ... and Nokia did it pretty well, it did not take too long to have a fix ("Touch" update today) ....

    Anyway, I am very very satisfied with my Lumia 1520 - it is my dream phone, well, without 41 Mpx camera and Xenon flash of Lumia 1020, but I prefer it over Lumia 1020 ...

    By the way, speakers of Lumia 1520 are really great ones ... :)

    I think the point he's trying to get across is that you're typically going to see more complaints about a device than praise. That doesn't mean there are lots of problems with the phone, just that there may be a few problems that need ironing out.

    The 1520 has only been out for about 3 months, which is a fairly short time. It's taken some time to get some things addressed, but overall, even with the touch issue out there, the really bad 1520's aren't the norm. I bought mine on day 1 of availability here in the States, and I'll be honest, the touch issue got to me, but I'm a bit anal about my technology. Even small stuff can bug me.

    A squeaky wheel will always get the most attention, and this forum has a lot of wheels turning, some squeakier than others, so some of those will bring attention. Again, it doesn't mean the 1520 is a bad phone. I love mine to death, and will continue to follow the Lumia models for the foreseeable future. Hopefully Microsoft will keep quality coming.

    It was common, seen many say they were on 2nd 3rd phone before they had one that was ok.

    Update fixed mine in UK, but the issue was not as bad as many owners.
