renders the device useless
i am happy to have the s5 as my second device, so i just play around with it. were i to have to use it as my primary device, i'd go mad, as it has a mind of its own and applications and actions are triggered by themselves, thus disturbing whatever workflow i find myself in, on a regular basis. i presume this is the case with all large screen devices with very little non sensitive areas around the border.

blah blah blah...
So, after all this yammering: defective, not defective, screen away from your body... blah blah blah
Is there an answer to the original question: Is there a way to reduce screen sensitivity?
I have the same issue (coming from the S3).
I would even consider a screen protector (as much as I hate them).

It is maddening.
It is the single most annoying thing about this phone, followed closely by the locked bootloader

Anyone, Anyone, Bueller?

The screen is perfect. Try using it with gloves, works even without the extra sensitive setting. And as for activation in pocket, my s3, optimus 4x, xperia sp etc all did this. Use a password or your fingerprint sensor, touchscreens are sensitive because if they weren't they would suck
