    PSA - The Nokia Touch App was updated today. Haven't seen a change log yet.
    I didn't see this update come in. Maybe because I have my phone set to auto-update apps (WP8.1) but it is not showing up in the download history either. Is there a way to check what version of the Touch App I have?

    System settings updates don't show in the history. One more reason for me to stick to manual updates.

    One way to check if the touch setting was updated is to see if it's at the end of the the settings list. All settings that get updated are placed at the bottom.

    The problem seems to have been resolved after today's update to the touch app in settings.

    You can force Store to check for updates in WP8.1 DP by going to the Store App, selecting options (3-dots), Downloads, options (3-dots), Settings, and hitting the "Check for Updates" button.

    Interestingly, the Touch App doesn't show up in "history" (even though I forced a download and watched it install, it isn't present in the History section. As MrGoodSmith notes, is seems to be by design) Given that it certainly does make it difficult to ascertain version....

    Yes, mine seems better as well after an update/restart but I've been burned before. Going to give it a couple of days.

    OK 3 days in, it's better but not perfect. From a purely subjective standpoint it feels about the same in WP 8.1 DP with Wednesday's Touch-App update as it did prior to my installation of 8.1 DP.

    It would be pure speculation on my part but I'm guessing that one of Nokia's "patches" was broken with the Developer Preview and the Touch-App fixed it. But it sure would be nice if Nokia was a little more transparent about the issue....

    Same here. I had very little false tap troubles with mine pre-8.1, the first day with 8.1 had no problems, then after a reboot or two it got progressively and significantly worse until the latest Touch update. Since Wednesday, I could probably count the number of false taps on one hand.

    I had it till March then one day i found an update and it fixed it. Since then it worked flawlessly.
    Are you implying there are still users experiencing it on new devices?

    Just got my 1520.3 last week and even after the touch update I'm still having some issues with it.. Mainly just from scrolling on the start screen and after exiting apps there is a delay before the touch is recognized again (that might be only after the phantom touch happens). Turned off auto brightness and put it to medium, turned off sunlight readability, touch sensitivity is normal, glance and double tap to wake are off. On WP 8.1 not sure if that's one of the problems but I'm really hoping this irons itself out in the next few updates.

    Has anyone with the problem tried locking screen orientation? Seems to be working so far for me.. One can hope right?

    Definitely still have issues, yes. Enough to be occasionally annoying, not enough to give up all the pluses that the device has.

    I'm purely guessing here but I think that it is a combination of Nokia making it better + people getting used to it. For example I'll use mine for a few days and not really think about the occasional swipe/tap stumbles and then pick either my Wife's 1020 or the test/dev 822 I have and realize I NEVER have any swipe/tap problems with those phones.

    This is definitely an issue - lots of swipes as taps on my 930 also. NEVER happens on my 920 with same apps.

    Also only happens on Xbox Music, Video and Metrotube for me. Others seem unaffected.

    I have the same issues. However, I tried use a wipe to clean the screen then install Glance Background. it seem to stable for couple days.

    To get Glance Background, install "Lumia System Updater".

    May be there is static build up under the screen.

    Mine does this once in a while. It's pretty random when it happens too. I have a 1020 for work and one that I change my SIM card to once in a while and neither of them have this issue. It's only on my 1520

    Glad I didn't see this poll before buying a 1520.3 a few weeks ago. But I'm a lucky one without the problem.

    Bought a brandnew 1520 four weeks ago - issue is still very present even on new devices.

    MIne's been sent in for repair three times! and the issue is still not resolved. Nice OS, shame about the crappy hardware.

    I like WinPhone, but as I can't get a HTC One here with WP I think I'll just go back to Android...

    Considering 1520 is not made anymore might suggest something! I don't see the tap issue, however I do get random behaviour, I pull it out of my case reboot and bend slightly and clear it 😊

    I ended up getting a OnePlus One, which is a great phone by the way.

    My 1520 is sitting in my 'junk' container here on the desk collecting dust, goodbye Lumia.
