I seriously doubt there's a major problem here.

The problem is: where is the "just works" feature that Apple always brags?

It's not a bug but rather an implementation of a new innovative function (not patented yet) to protect users from wasting their time on playing games ;P
Or maybe a Über Hard Mode for more advanced users :)

They aren't saying it is a definite problem; they're saying it could be a problem. It depends on the user. If it is someone who swipes on the screen constantly, like for a game or other touch-based app, then it may be a big problem. They even mention that not everyone will suffer from this glitch.
Of course, knowing you, you see any article that talks about a negative aspect of the iPhone as a threat to Apple's good name...as if they actually had one.

Yea, no problems unless you play games. Now I wait for you to say its not for gaming anyway....cmon, you know you wanna say it.....
But, if it is software related, no problems. Just wait for an update. MeoCao hit the elephant on the head tho.....the "just works" mantra shoulda died looong ago.

You're swiping it wrong. It's normal.

Problem is with the Apple brainwashed devotees! The glitch exists in their mind.

Reading this....the iPhone does "just works" It "just works" like every other phone. Its not some magical phone that's immune to issues....its just like every other phone.

Well this shouldn't happen on a phone with "The Most Advanced Operating System In The World."

Nah. It is a parental control.... Can't be having those kiddies playing games with their iP5s!

You know! "It is a parental control" for old people do not play game anyway, why bother?

If you threw the phone in the garbage it would work better.

If you really research it the iPhone 5 is basically made of cheap parts period.The 4s IS BETTER than the 5. On that note,Judge Lucy Koh has decided to hear Samsung's side after questioning the integrity(because he has none)of the jury foreman for witheld info on how he use to work for Seagate,a partner with Samsung . Hey did you get the Note II yet bruh?

The only users that would rub their phone in such a way, are the people who play games like The Master of Baiters...
