Irresponsive area on the touchscreen
Hopefully I'm not breaking any rules. I've also searched and didn't found anything related to the problems I'm having.
As the title stated, my N4's touchscreen doesn't respond to touches on a certain area specifically the bottom area where the nav bar is. I was on Paranoid Android when it happened and flashed stock just to see whether it'd solve anything but despite the effort, it's still there. I figured that it might be a hardware problem since I did dropped the phone a couple of times. At first, it was only within the nav bar area but just recently, I dropped it again (thank God nothing cracked) while answering a phone call and the broken area just increased up to where the spacebar is.
I've been thinking about opening it and check the digitizer connection but I figured I could get the community opinions about it first. It's hard for me to RMA it because I live in Malaysia but bought it from the US last November (I'm not sure how the warranty covers anyway). If there's any options that I can try without having to open the phone, or what ever it is, just post it. I'm more than glad to hear about it.
Here's a couple of screenshots(man, the pictures are huge!) :-
Swiped downward and just above the irresponsive area.
This one, I swiped up from the bottom of the screen, you can see that it doesn't detect anything down there.
Lastly, this is before the recent drop. You can see that it's just around the nav bar area.
Thank you very much.
