I got my G3 about a week ago and have been thoroughly enjoying it, however in the last couple of days I've been having a recurring intermittent issue with the touchscreen.

Essentially what's been happening is when the phone's gotten a bit warm the touchscreen stops registering long presses or swipes properly, and adds random break points in the swipe, this is especially annoying when trying to use the continuous input on the keyboard or add widgets.

Obviously the phone's still under warranty, so I'll return it if need be, but I was wondering if anyone else was having this issues or had any theories.


Thanks for your time.

the lg g3 is on top 3 list this fall and I did read about some of the heating problems

but based on your comments and the fact it is under warranty, I would replace it at your earliest convenience--

I have to admit I have had nearly the same issue. My phone has been perfect everywhere except when it gets hot from a highly demanding game (demanding in the CPU Heat generation sense, games as simple as Angry Birds Epic cause it to get hot) and once it does, it gets to a point the touchscreen become much more erratic and less consistent on detecting taps, swipes, and holds. This digs badly into games since everything has onscreen controls and when the touchscreen looses its ability to detect touches, then all bets are off until the device cools down a bit.

It is not overly hot or uncomfortable to hold. The phone feels rather warm but otherwise everything looks and runs fine, just the touch input goes to crap for a few seconds then comes back. Has anyone else experienced this under a heavy load?

I've been having a similar issue with my LG G3. I'm very pleased with the phone's overall performance but it has this touchscreen issue that's really affecting how I can use it. It has a great proc and gaming capabilities but I can't play some games because I can't rely upon the screen to register presses every time.

Have you been able to solve your issue? If so, what did you do?
