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

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?
