    I recently purchased a Lumia 830 when Microsoft was running their $200 promo. After using it for a week with no problems I started noticing intermittent screen jumps while scrolling. I would describe this as text jumping vertically while scrolling which makes it difficult to read since I need to look for the text I was just reading. I noticed this same issue with a 1520 which I thought might be related to the tap scroll issue. Has anyone else had this issue with an 830? My daughter has a 635 and I never noticed any jumping while scrolling. Thanks.

    Are you talking about jitter or micro stutter while scrolling or where the text jumps to another position on the screen almost as if you scrolled much more then you did?

    Common issue. At least from my own experience (we have three 830's in my family and all of them do it occasionally). Not sure why it happens or how to make it go away. It doesn't happen all the time, but it's annoying when it does.

    Yes, it is there, most prominent in twitter app, among others. Maybe it is more noticeable in twitter because it needs much scrolling.

    Happening on both my 830's I've tested... I hate when it does that jumping....

    Even in settings or applist this can happen...

    I sent my 830 for repair just for this. I hope they give me a new one that actually does not do this. Micro-stutter on apps also happens on my Lumia 720. But the scrolling stutter that skips a frame, only happens on Lumia 830. Happens mostly on the start screen.

    I'm talking about text jumping to another position on the screen. I notice it mostly in the web browser.

    I just purchased the phone and am within the return period. Did the problem with yours get worse over time? I was wondering if I should try to exchange it.

    If you have text stutter, then do not exchange it. That is something with any Lumia. But if you have start screen stutter scrolling, then exchange it. It felt like it dropped a frame whenever I started scrolling. It made my experience crap. I lived with it for 5 months but now I just can't help it. It has something do with ocd.

    Got my phone back from repair and they fixed nothing. Not even one issue. Worst service in Canada. Calling them leads to them saying sorry and nothing else.

    I have this on my Lumia 630 it stutter when I scroll with my finger on screen as soon as I lift it it continue scrolling smoothly and it's super annoying especially not knowing if that's an issue that can be fixed or some or all Lumia phones just work that way. It seems that only people with OCD can see it :)

    It's an OS issue... the screen jump exists on the 830, 630, 930, 1520 that I know of, and probably others.

    That's what I thought people who say that they're phones doesn't do this apparently just don't pay attention to it, but what could be cause? According to comments in forum this micro stutter is present sync cyan update

    I personally don't know enough to tell you, but one theory I've read is that it's an issue with the way the firmware is interacting with the OS. It doesn't bother me much, but either way I'm sure it'll be fixed. Apparently it's already considerably better with Denim and Update 2.

    That's true it's much better with update 2 and also today I've got interesting tip on other thread (where I posted video of micro stutter) that I should try to swipe with thumb sideways instead of tip of my thumb which apparently create too much friction, which is than translated to OS as this weird jumping. To my biggest surprise it actually work O.O I don't know if problem was at our fingers whole time or it's a combination of less friction and update 2 but now it's significantly better :) thank you very much for your help

    Interesting, I'll try that. The other trick I noticed is that keeping your thumb or finger on the screen for a shorter time prevents the jump. So if I want to scroll through a long list I'll flick with a little more force, while keeping contact with the screen for less time, as opposed to a slower scroll (more contact time on the screen and less force in scrolling).

    I was wondering myself if it was something I was doing. Especially as i also have some issues with side scrolling in apps. I'll have to try using less tip. ;)

    I am convinced I am executing some gesture to cause the glitch:
    ...slide up...pause...slide sideways=jump scroll 1/2 screen
    I haven't found a list of secret gestures, but it's a consistent issue.

    I've found interesting thing, not sure if it proves anything but at least it could be a potential reason for this scroll jitter. I've looked at how WP work with touch and find out that they actually differentiate scrolling by dragging finger across the screen which they call simply DRAG, and just flicking the screen to scroll which they specify as FLICK. That's a fact so there is actual difference between dragging and flicking which some of us see. Now remember that this micro stutter looks like a content of the screen that is being scrolled sort of jumps number of times. Well Microsoft specify that when people start moving finger across the screen manipulation event called ManipulationStart occurs and than during drag ManipulationDelta event occurs number of times until movement stops, to notify system where exactly users finger is. Did you see this certain similarity there? System deals with touch by firing delta event multiple times like screen jumps multiple times, but when we just flick the screen and lift our finger from screen no delta event occurs as same as there is no jumping of content that has been scrolled. I know it could be nothing and I really don't understand how WP work and how rich works but it sounds pretty concurrent to me. Also if that's how it is, it would mean that this phenomenon is actually how system itself works and thus all windows phone devices as well. And that would mean that some of us are seeing things or others doesn't see this thing that is clearly there :D. Otherwise power of placebo effect ;). What do you thing could this be proof that this scrolling jitter affects all Lumia phones and possible source of this "issue"?
