[BUG] Screen Sensitivity Issue-Lag (4.0.4-4.1.x)
(might be others): selecting an app from the Recents list (Task Switcher)
: turn the screen off, then back on
: avoid using Recents list (you can use a 3rd party task switcher instead)
How to test
: open Messaging, hit Home, hit Recents, select Messaging from the list. Your screen will be less sensitive until you turn the screen off and back on. You can view the pressure by going to Settings
-> Developer Options
-> turn on Pointer Location
. This will allow you to see the Prs
of each tap in your status bar. Normally your lightest taps that register will show anywhere from 0.28 to 0.32
. However, after this bug is activated, you will mostly get values over 0.40
for your light taps. This is actually a very noticeable increase, especially when trying to type quickly.
Please report any other known methods to "activate" this bug. After re-assigning my Recents button to a 3rd party app (I'm using Simple Task Switcher), I haven't seen this bug at all. It seems that a couple of people have seen it produced by something other than Recents, but they haven't narrowed it down (or reliably reproduced it on purpose).
Please star this issue officially so Google can fix:
