    Spoke to live chat and they said to return the phone and replace.....and yet people done this and either a bit better/same/worse than the one they took back, I also did see someone say a friend in Nokia told them a fix is on the way eta?????? I said all this to live chat today and they were all "oh, what problem, never heard of this issue"
    TBH bets thing anyone can do is bug the hell out of Nokia, only way to get answers and get a fix quick.
    I have been at them a few times about screen and the horrible low light video...NOISE!!!!

    Have you spoke to Nokia, anyone with issue needs to speak to them to get answer....wait or return. The more that do the faster we get a fix or told to return.

    Talked to Nokia support, their advice is to hard reset which I don't think will help and is going to be a real hassle. So,, more people need to complain for them to take this seriously.

    Yeah they tend to say hard reset or turn touch off high to normal.....well whats the point in having high if its broke.

    Again, if you have the issue speak with Nokia.

    Its funny its like that issue with the SGS4 with the smeargate saga, I was well behind that with a few others, pushing on sites and driving people to question that issue, in the end one guy got it to hit the media and lol who would of thought it......a fix came not long after :-)

    Problem is most companies rush product out, they know we will buy it and look at it as "hey we can update as we go along, just get it out and sell" and the problem is some dont complain to them, so in any companies eyes why bother to fix it if they seem happy with it, thats why you need to get on at them.

    Reported this issue in Nokia forum. They said change screen sensitivity to normal. I try to resetting several times but nothing is fixed.That's funny. So, this issue may not be resolved :(

    I think that is on all phones, not just the 1520. I know I had that issue on my 925, 1020, 1520, and my dad has it on his 920. Sometimes I can get in a groove and will work for a few days nicely, but it always shows up again. I've tried screen sensitivity, leaving glance on all the time, etc. No luck.

    Switching from 920 to this 1520. The first day I use this phone already getting annoyed with the touch sensitivity issue. I thought only few units having this issue, but it seems quite a number are encountering the same issue.
    Previously able to fixed this by updating the latest Microsoft Update with Developer Preview. But the problem came back after few days....

    It seems worse the longer its left alone, I would say its gone in to low power/deep sleep, and the taps are not getting through, kind of like waking a person up from a sleep.....the longer the harder it is to wake them lol
    If I use it and keep going back to it there is no real issue, but if its been left alone say 30mins, then at times I have to tap loads just to get it to wake.
    This could be a powersave issue, they want it to run as deep as they can to help the battery life, really needs looked into as you look a fool stood there tapping like mad.

    Having this problem since wp7 days when I was using a Lumia 800. Then I changed to Lumia 620 and still having the same problem. Recently I'm using lumia 920 with gdr3, I think whether the problem has been fixed with gdr3 or lumia 920's touch sensor is a lot better than my previous phones..

    The firmware released on ATT today seems to have fixed this issue for me on my 1520. I've tested in both NORMAL and HIGH sensitivities and no swipes have been mistaken. This is only with about 5 - 10 minutes of just random swipes. Even after waking the screen up it seems much better.

    After reading another guys post in Nokia forum it would seem the update did not fix the screen tap issue, he said it was ok for 12hrs and then it came back.

    The symptom seems not happening during charging on my 1520...anyone try to turn off the battery saver?
    My 920 & 820 never had such issue.

    I can almost guarantee you this is a hardware problem. I had to get my 1520 exchanged twice over unrelated issues. The first one had a horrible case of the swipe-click. The second was slightly better. The third one doesn't have it at all. I haven't installed any updates yet (plus the latest update the AT&T customers get isn't even out here yet). It seems Nokia's been shipping faulty digitizer units in some production batches. They may be trying to fix the problem with a software workaround but so far they don't seem to have been very successful.

    I need to use a signature in a dialog box for work and it is not possible to get a signature to register on my 1520 (works fine on my iPhone and GS4)... Just drawn a small segment, then drags/moves the screen around...

    Well just Tweeted Nokia Helps again, said this is looking more like HW and as such no fix will work, or if they do get a work around it could be way off.....if ever.

    There is no way a massive company like that cannot at the very least come to the conclusion of fixable yes...but will take time/not fixable and then pass on this info so we know what to do.

    I love the phone except for this issue (and the screen dimming), but how did this phone make it through any quality control procedures before being released??? It seems like such a very wide-spread issue, that such procedures would have certainly caught the problem. Oh, well. Keeping my fingers crossed for a fix.

    Giving it to end of next week, if no word off Nokia as to IF! its fixable then I will take it as a no go and return it.

    This problem is driving me crazy. It's to the point I know when it will happen and just get ready to immediately press the back button. I'm beginning to wonder if I should go back to my Note 2.
