    Even in normal my 1520 screen is too sensitive. I'm constantly getting my finger swipe gestures registered as clicks. But what's weird is the double tap to wake up feature for the most part never works. Usual it's a quadruple or more taps to wake up lol. Anyone else having these issues?

    I think that is an issue with a lot of 1520's... The DP update seemed to make it better but that was short lived....

    Oh lol.i have WP 8.1 but I don't think it's even a Windows issue. Seems like a firmware problem to me.

    I have noticed that when I scroll down with my fingers, it tends to zoom in especially if I have been sitting at one part of the web page for a few seconds. I believe it's so sensitive that it interprets any touch on the screen as if my intention is to zoom in, even if touched lightly, even on normal sensitivity.

    I read somewhere on these forums that setting your sensitivity to NORMAL and your screen brightness to MEDIUM will reduce this occurrence. I've used these settings and have noticed the issue happens far less than it used to. I can't take credit for this, but I also can't remember which user on these forums discovered this (sort of) trick. Hats off to them!

    Haven't noticed consistent results with any combination of phone settings (sensitivity, glance, touch, etc.). Double tap to wake seems to work as it should for me, but you just never know when a swipe or scroll will register as a tap unfortunately.

    I love this phone, but this bug is driving me crazy sometimes. I sincerely hope they are working on a fix for this. I need it badly!

    I also get a lot of the unwanted zoom in thing when I touch the screen. It's quite annoying.

    I've also noticed while browsing that it will sometimes select website links that aren't even being displayed. At first I was totally baffled, wondering where on earth it found some article I couldn't even see, but then I realized it was off-screen while I was zoomed in. It somehow misinterprets touches and chooses the wrong part of the web page. Not sure if that's an OS or firmware problem.

    I've only had my 1520 just over a week. First thing I did was load 8.1, so I'm not sure if my results will be as helpful.

    That said, I haven't had the sensitivity problem at all (fingers crossed). But I do know the double tap to wake is VERY inconsistent. But it was the same on my 920. It usually does this when using the glance beta. When I disable glance beta it works as it should.

    Same here. I've had my 1520 for about two weeks and it's been having sensitivity issues since day one with WP 8 and 8.1.

    I wonder, for those who are facing screen sensitivity issues, are you using any screen protector? Could that be the reason as well? I have the issue, and having a screen protector on the screen though.

    I don't use a screenprotector and have this issue too. A screenprotector makes it only worse is my experience.

    After turnig off dubble tap to wake, vibration on the windows keys and glace, the problem is almost completely gone for me. Sucks I can't have those features turned on, but at least it works. (Btw its worked for several months now).

    Its a strange problem, different solutions (or lack thereof) for different phones.

    Edit: Btw, I'm on windows phone 8.1

    I feel like no one has a solution and are just claiming they've found one as either some sort of placebo effect or they're in denial.

    I've tried everything and still receive phantom taps. I think it is a hardware issue. As another person stated on the numerous threads about this...if this was such a widespread problem, Nokia wouldn't of waited to package the fixes in the next firmware update (cyan)- strictly speaking if this was a firmware issue... If a product is broken and the company is aware of the problem (and has been since launch) then ideally it should be of best interest of the company to fix the problem asap (for the consumer). ...Just my two cents (especially being in the software business)...but then again, I guess we'll find out if this is a hardware vs software problem after the next firmware update (cyan) is released.

    PS. Stating that this is an OS problem is irrelevant here. It can only be a) firmware or b) hardware

    Since basically 8.0 and 8.1 produce the same issues on both of my 1520's...(one is an ATT model, the other is a Qi unlocked model from Amazon).
