Default [Q] touch sensitivity

Is it me or do you guys feel the touch sensitivity is much lower than other phones? It is not a big issue and barely noticeable during daily use but at least in my handset it feels like slightly extra pressure has to be added to the screen. Could someone verify?

I think my feeling is completely unfounded, but I have sometimes some "missed" :
  • When I use the keyboard: I make more mistakes than my old phone, while the keys are much larger ...
  • Sometimes I need to really "press" the screen with the finger much harder than my old phone

I agree with you, I feel like I need to put more pressure on this than my Samsung Note 10.1, my SO's iPhone 4s, or even my old LG Optimus & iPhone 3g. I got used to it after a while but I wish there was a way to re-calibrate the screen sensitivity.

If someone knows of a way to do it (without requiring root) I'd appreciate it so much. (Unlocking bootloader/rooting invalidates warranty in the US AFAIK, so I don't want to do it quite yet..)

Its hard to notice during regular use, but its suprising that even a basic chinese phone has better response.
