Default Screen Recognising finger while not touching screen

Is there anyone els experiencing the same "problem" (not sure if it is a problem or can be disabled) sometimes while using the phone not always tho I can scroll through the broser or any other app im using without touching the screen just by hovering my finger over the screen.

I have air view already disabled but it still happens... while browsing sometimes 2 3 times in a week for a of couple seconds but on lockscreen with the watercolour eff most of the time its there.

maybe its a firmware error :/

Thanks anyway

DONATE TO ME
I had got the same thing....actually its not a problem but a feature with which you can use your phone even with gloves on....It basically makes the screen more sensitive and even when you dont touch it and just hover a bit above it,the phone detects the touch...

To disable this goto Setting --> Controls --> Increase Touch senstivity and untick it....

That should solve it....
I know its very hard and tiring to hit so please avoid that pain.

Problem??? I don't think it's a problem. I kinda like it and often flaunt it to my friends... "See the MAGIC" hahaha .. Amazing Samsung
