Default [q] no screen touches being recognized!!!

Hey XDA, Really need some help here, i'll bullet point my problem for ease of reading:

- 1st Nexus 4 bought from google had wi-fi issues so got replacement
- 2nd replacement nexus 4 was good for about 2 weeks
- randomly screen touches weren't recognized by phone so reboot fixed that
- got worse and more frequent
- now my phone does not recognize screen touches at all
- phone is completely unusable, power volume buttons work though.
- need to ask XDA before another replacement ///

WHAT I'VE TRIED:

- i was on stock, so i tried to reflash stock to get rid of gravity stock and stock kernel
- rebooting phone 3950280359283 times.
- cleared caches.
- asked google play support, they're clueless.
- problem was here before i was unrooted, on complete stock 4.4.2
- also wondering whether its a software or hardware problem. i assume hardware however.
- i still have warranty

ANY IDEAS?!? thanks.

Does a touch recovery recognize touches? If so, it could be a problem of your rom/kernel. Otherwise I think it's a hardware problem.

My screen works now. However it will still come back every now and then and is fixed by a reboot. When i made this thread it did not work for a whole day, so my device will probably breakdown again. When I use TWRP it does not recognize touches. A good decider. So i guess it is hardware?

I think so, but wait for another reply confirming that.

I'd say it's a hardware issue. Definitely get it replaced again.

Devices:
LG Nexus 4 - Stock + Xposed
Samsung Captivate - CM 11
Samsung Galaxy S II - AOKP

Lmao. You're definitely right. It's really annoying they sent me another device with a WORSE problem. Gonna ask google for some sort of compensation. I don't really have time to fiddle with devices re-rooting them transferring all my data again and so on. Too much work.
