Default Xperia Z1 touch screen problem

My touchscreen is really bad right now it has problems sensing touch

Two video examples which are exactly like my problem

1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oj1P0X12r_A ----- Start at 0:24
2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0sqwwUoEPc

I thinks it's a software problem since most Xperia Z1 users are having this problem?
Thanks for all your help!

Edit: Apparently many users are having this problem... Just found another vid : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wD_PS7EoQI8

In my opinion, its software problem related ..

I mean the sensor maybe need more tweaks and stuffs ..

Anyway, its just my opinion

Alright, thanks for your opinion... I'll try to go back to older firmwares to test wether it is hardware or software related

If this is a hardware problem, Sony will have some BIGGGGGGG trouble

EDIT : Okay, I have just went back to 524 firmware to test and I can confirm that the problem still persists.

As I wrote in the other thread my phone seems fine, tried 5 times. Someone said that it happened when you got in contact with the aluminium.
So I took the phone out of its case and tried, still fine.

I've noticed a loss of touch across the right edge of the screen, most noticable when playing candy crush and i want to switch on the far right, but in normal use it's absolutely fine, points to software in this case.

If you want to know if there are problems then download a multi touch app and move your finger across every inch of the screen, if you lose contact you'll know theres a problem and you'll have some tangible evidence when you take it back to the shop.

I'm starting to rather dislike Sony now . I can't believe so many problems can be found on a $5998 HKD, HIGH END smartphone . When I first saw an Xperia Z1, I immediately fell in love with it. I decided to save up all my money to get one, for a few months I only used 1/4 of my lunch money for lunch. And then you know what? I end up with a f*cked up touchscreen, bootloader unlocking problems and a yellow, ugly screen that don't want to see anymore. More then 6 of my friends are gonna buy an Xperia Z1 (cuz they saw mine) But I'm gonna make them change their minds and buy something else.
