    I'm experiencing a major issue with how swipes are being detected as taps on my 930 - resulting in massive frustration while navigating apps horizontally. It doesn't happen in all apps and doesn't happen at all on my 920. Major offenders are Games, Videos, Music, Metrotube.

    It seems this was a big issue on the 1520 too:

    Anyone else experiencing it?

    Daniel Rubino has experienced this on his Lumia 1520 as well.

    I used to experience this in a few apps(primarily Whatsapp) but after most of those apps got updated, I don't think I've experienced it on the last few weeks.

    No one else noticed this? I tried my friends 930 today and it did the same thing.

    Did some further testing in app and it appears that it's not just limited to some apps, but certain tiles in those apps. For example, the first 2 long tiles in Video app are fine when swiped, but the 3rd and 4th ones always will register taps. I'm almost certain now that this is an app issue in specific apps.

    I have this issue. Pita. I only noticed it on my 1520. My l920, 925,and 810 dis not have this problem. I thought it was related just to this phone or maybe the dev preview for 8.1. But the L925 has the same update but without this problem. For me, it is not tile specific. It happens all over the OS and in all kinds of different apps. It's a pain but one I haven't complained about cause I love the phone so much and I over looked it. It doesn't happen often enough for me to gripe.maybe 2 or 3 times a day it will register the swipe incorrectly and I simply use the back arrow and swipe again for it to work. Maybe not always on the first try but definitely by the second.

    Could possibly be a problem with the app's compatibility with Windows Phone 8.1. Either that, or I'm guessing a fautly touch screen.

    Seems like either a screen size or resolution, something unoptimized in the WP8.1 code base? On the 1520 it happens even on the start screen, and in TapaTalk it happens all the time.

    Except that it happens all over the place on the 1520 and that one doesn't even have 8.1 yet

    Sorry, I meant WP8 and WP8.1. When WP8 was released there were no 6" phones, but my now you'd hope that the software would be optimized for large screens as well. But it doesn't look like this. Assuming it's a software / firmware problem, maybe related to scaling of touch coordinates.

    I cant replicate any issue in videos, swipes are swipes and taps are taps. If you give me another scenario I can test too on mine but all video tiles working fine here.

    Only times I've had swipes register in taps, were when using apps which don't support the swipes... such as the radio (searching for stations by name).

    Otherwise, swiping for emails and texts has been blinkin' amazing! :)

    I have these issues on this app on my Lumia 521, when swiping to get to forums I end up clicking a article on the main page

    I'm monitoring this closely. Part of the reason I'm considering a switch to the 930 from my 1520 is the widespread swipe/tap bug.

    I've made that switch and the 930 is a gazillion times better in this respect.

    I used to have this problem with Adobe Photoshop Express and it would always open the Adobe Revel sign in screen however I have just now tried to replicate and the issue has appeared to been resolved.

    Hmm, interesting. Makes me consider switching that much more. Although you did say in another thread that the 930 is "chalk full of hardware issues." Has your switch from the 1520 been worth it overall?

    Well, the swipe/tap bug was so bad on all four 1520s I tried that I could never actually use them - in that respect, it was worth the switch. Other than that, I don't really like the 930 because of the various bugs and faults (lousy screen, slow keyboard autocorrect, mediocre camera), but there's not much of an alternative if you want to stick to WP8 (which I might not, once the iPhone 6 is here, to be honest).

    Thanks. Interestingly, I stop by the Verizon store here in the DC area pretty often to mess around with the Icon (which of course is ostensibly the same as the 930) and it doesn't have any of those issues. Honestly, it sounds like much of the 930's kinks are things that'll get worked out with software updates. Recall how many of the same issues accompanied the 900 and the 920 for a short time.

    I just can't justify keeping both phones financially, so I'd have to sell my 1520.3 if I end up getting and keeping the 930. Probably not worth doing without LTE though...

    I can confirm this issue on my 930. Playing SubwaySurfers is frustrating if your character continue running straight ahead even if you swipe left or right. This never happend on my old 925.

    I'm considering to buy Lumia 930 because my Lumia 1520 has swipe/tap issue. But I found out that Lumia 930 has same issue on your post. I just have cancelled my Lumia 930 order now!!!
