[Q] Nexus 4 touchscreen and Battery Issues
I bought a Brand New Nexus 4 a 5 months back from an unofficial distributor. In the Beginning I loved the phone, but now this phone is really giving me a lot of headaches lately.
My first issue is the Ghost touch and dead zone issue that has been affecting quite a few G4's lately. (Since I enabled "Show Touches" in developers options,I am able to see any touch inputs on my phone. )
The ghost touches occur right in the middle of the screen (Right where the dead zone is) and the ghost touch issue disappears when I lock and unlock the screen.
The ghost touches may show up again after a minute, 10 minutes or maybe even the next day.
To my dismay, I think that a new dead zone has appeared (however, much smaller than the dead zone in the middle) a centimeter above my Navigation bar.
My other issue is that when my battery reaches a certain level, say around 25-38%, the whole screen erupts in a fury of touches all over the screen. My phone is rendered unusable, until I charge up the phone.
And another issue is that when I restart my phone, the touch screen sometimes does not respond at first. It then starts working after a while. It could start working in 1 minute or it could start working in an hour. This particular issue only happens when I restart the phone
Honestly, I have taken care of my phone, and never dropped it or abused it in anyway.
I read reviews about the whole "Amazing Quality" of the Nexus 4, and was bought on looks and design of the phone, but right now I'm really starting to regret my choice, and wish I went with an Xperia Instead.
Sadly, since there is no official LG or Google Service centers where I live, and since I bought this phone from an non-official shop, I'm unable to send it in for warranty claims.
I'm quite adept in opening up electronics, so I have no issues opening up my Nexus.
Does anyone know of a way to fix this phone, without a Digitizer replacement?
And is there anyone out there facing the same problems?
