Default [Q] Touch Screen issue on S4 i9505

So I've been having this weird behaviour of the touch screen on my S4 during games. When I'm needed to hold my finger on the screen for continuous gestures (like moving) sometimes the screen stops registering the touch (it's like I've lifted my fingure off the screen, but I haven't), so I have to lift my finger up and press the screen again to continue moving. It's happening really often and it's really annoying for a game like Super Hexagon where if you stop moving for a milisec you're dead. Don't think I've read anyone else having the same problem. I've been having this problem on the stock Jelly Bean 4.3, CM 11 Kitkat 4.4.2 and recently I put the unofficial stock 4.4.2 KitKat. Is it a hardware problem? Any help would be appreciated!

Reboot into recovery and do wipe cache/Factory reset and then Flash the kitkat leak once again via odin and check if the problem still persist. and if your problem still doesnt fix try to flash a stock 4.3 , it might be a bug or something since the 4.4 kitkat is just a leak.. have a nice day

I'm om 4.3 now, still the same. Almost all games are unplayable... I'm starting to think it's a hardware problem. Could the disabling of a service be causing this, cus I disable a lot of them.
edit: I found that pressing the screen a little bit too hard makes it unresponsive. Definitely hardware problem since I've changed screen glasses before. I'm losing hope for fixing this :/. Any suggestions?

Well not me personally, a friend of mine owned the phone before me and I think he cracked it so he gave it for repairs to replace the screen glass, so I'm guessing it's something to do with the replacement glass.
