Default Samsung Galaxy GT-I9300 - Glass replacement experiences

Hello community.

I've recently replaced the glass on my SIII, and is a tad worried.
I replaced the glass only, not LED & digitizer, and it mainly works fine.
However, the new glass touches the middle of the digitizer. From time to time, it will also register as a touch, messing with the usability. When this happends, I have to turn the screen on & off again, and it'll work fine for a bit more - as long as I don't press too hard on the screen.

I read someone claiming that this might be a sign that the screen isn't hard glass, but flexible plastic, which will destroy the digitizer (due to the constant pressure).

So I'm basically looking to talk to someone who knows anything about this.
Or anyone else with experience from replacing glass.

Ball tossed to community.

Well I just replaced my glass after a destruction of my original glass.... this on the fourth day of the phone with me...
And now the glass reflects a lot (compared to the original glass) also there is a little bit of blur on the screen which really was annoying, tried to find a solution to these problems but they said everything was normal and that this flaw in the screen was due to replacing only the glass not the whole screen..... also the colors of the touch buttons changed.....
But..... guess I'll have to survive with the device for a year like this.... only a matte based screen protector saves the quality. .
