I'm having a problem with my M8. The digitizer registers touches when my finger is quite close to the screen (1mm) but I haven't actually touched it. It's not a massive problem as it's just 1mm but it makes the user experience quite strange. Sometimes I press something on the screen but two touches are registered (one when I approach the screen, another when I actually touch it). Or sometimes I'm going to press a button and the action happens before I actually touch the screen, leaving me thinking "WTF just happened?"

It's something similar to this but of course a lot less serious:

Can any other M8 owners check if this happens with their phone? Thanks in advance!

Can you guys push you glass down at the edges? I don't have to put a lot of pressure and the glass pushes down on the lcd and creates that blue mark

Nope, doesn't seem to be an issue for me.

Sorry for digging this up. But I've just bought M8 last week. And I found this problem too. I struggle to type correctly. Is there anyway to fix this?
