Microsoft Lumia 535 touch screen is too sensitive; upcoming software update will fix the problem
A video out of Vietnam confirms what many users of the Microsoft Lumia 535 have been complaining about; the phone's touch screen is just too sensitive. Does that mean that the screen cried because you called it fat? No. The sensitivity that we are talking about has to do with how the screen tracks your fingers when you touch the glass.

As the video shows, multi-touch is one of the problems facing users of the Lumia 535. The problem with the touch screen on the handset, could make it hard for users to employ Word Flow. The latter is the Swype-style swipe to type feature available on Windows Phone 8.1.

Microsoft says that it is aware of the problem, and is working on a software update that will fix the issue. In the meantime, some Lumia 535 users say that they have been able to improve the sensitivity of the screen by turning off the Screen Magnifier, which just so happens to be on by default. To turn this feature off, go to Settings >Ease of Access.

Too Sensitive? It barely responds when I touch it. Mostly while playing games.

Wow, those blacks look utterly hideous and washed-out next to the AMOLED Lumia 1020...

Yeah, & it's also an extremely cheap device with a 5" qHD screen. What were you expecting? Screen of the year? You must really hate your life because you will find a reason to b*tch about anything.
