Yes but it's a lot of phones that are having this problem. I have had 2 so far and the same thing keeps happening. I'll be receiving my 3ed on Monday and I'm hoping that it will be ok if not, I give up on samsung.
Let's try a few troubleshooting steps to see if it will help resolve touch screen issues you are experiencing.
Wipe system cache partition:
Try booting your device in safe mode:
Let's try putting the device in Safe mode to determine if there are external factors that cause this symptom. This step will temporarily disable all your third-party apps, but none of your personal data will be deleted. Your customization settings (Wallpaper, Themes, et cetera) will be reset to default once you exit this mode.
Please follow the steps below:
1. Turn the device off.
2. Press and hold the Power key past the model name screen.
3. When "SAMSUNG" appears on the screen, release the Power key.
4. Immediately after releasing the Power key, press and hold the Volume down key.
5. Continue to hold the Volume down key until the device finishes restarting.
6. Safe mode will display in the bottom left corner of the screen.
7. Release the Volume down key when you see Safe Mode.
8. To exit Safe Mode, restart your device.
Let us know how your device responds after performing this step!
If the symptoms do not persist in this mode, means a third-party app may be causing this to occur. I would recommend deleting each individual third-party app until the symptoms do not occur anymore.
If the symptoms do still persist in safe mode, I recommend backing up your device and performing a factory reset. I know this may not be the ideal step to take but this will reset the device to its factory default settings.
Same problem in Canada. Did a factory reset...no apps installed and still having the problem so let's not try to distract people with a 3rd party app problem. I don't know of any 3rd party apps that can screw up your touch screen.
There is obviously a very widespread problem here and the sooner Samsung acknowledges it, the better their credibility will be. Do we need to talk about the Note 7 again?
Get this fixed Samsung...or at least acknowledge it. If I return this phone, there's no reason to believe the next one won't have the same problem.
