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

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....

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
