Default Scroll lagging and difficulty tapping

Hi all,

I just unboxed a new Xperia Z2 Tablet and i've had some trouble with scrolling. I previously had an iPad and currently use a Nexus 5, and i'm used to two things:

1. Scrolling is easy and responsive - ie the screen moves with my finger, which I guess is the point.

2. I tap where I intend to tap, and the app responds according to what i've tapped.

Neither of these are happening with the Z2. I've still got faith. I figure i'm doing something wrong though. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Please update the firmware to the newest one (last characters are .402) and see whether the problems are gone. Earlier firmwares are known to have touchscreen problems.

You can use the Sony PC Companion software for your PC to do the update if the tablet doesn't show availability of an OTA update. Or, if both don't work, flash a FTF from this forum via Flashtool.

I'm in the same boat. Still not great with the firmware update. Sounds from other threads that there are others looking into it too and Sony aren't helping... Not sure what else to do. Except wait...

Send it back, accompanied by a peppery letter that Sony's service is abysmal and that you won't buy another Sony device.
Write in the letter that you KNOW that Sony's support employees have an order to deny the existence of the touchscreen problem and that such a behavior is incredibly impudent and the opposite of service.

They must start to know that the customers don't accept certain things, period.

I don't have any of the issues you have mentioned. I'm on. 402 too, I have so many things running and sitting at 900 Mb of free ram with complete zero lag. Still have touch screen issue but it's not as major as before. Probably happens every three days or sometimes just none. have you tried repairing it with Sony update service or Sony pc companion? Try those, and before you do that go to settings / back up and reset and do a factory reset.

If the problem still persist then exchange or refund it.

Is your Xperia having issues? Try repairing it with Sony's PC Companion or Sony's Update Service first before posting.
Remember to back up your data before proceeding and do internal wipes [factory reset under settings] as well.

Use the latest FlashTool to flash FTF files if PCC and SUS fails to recognize/repair your Xperia.

I too have the impression that there are less ignored taps when doubletap to wake is disabled

Actually I own z ultra and a z1 compact and a z2 tablet
Ultra: no problem at all
Z2 tablet, leggy, unresponsive. I'm trying to sell it on eBay after 3 weeks
Z1 compact. Near unusable. Too much sensitive.

By by Sony. Returning to apple. Sadly
