I recently got a replacement phone from esurance for a broken Droid x2. They sent me a droid 4, which I had no objections against given the great specs comparatively.
I read reviews on the screen being low quality, viewing wise, and this is not the issue I have with the phone. Coming from a dx2, the quality is not that different.

My problem is that there appears to be a lag between when i touch the screen and when it starts reading the input. A simple test to show what I am talking about is as follows;
Download multi touch paint or another paint app. If I swipe my finger across the screen as fast as i can, I can get 2/3 of the way across the screen before it draws anything.
This half second delay makes typing on the screen nearly impossible...It only picks up about half of the letters I press when typing normally like I would on a Dx2. To be clear, its not inputing the wrong letters because i am not used to the phone.. Its not inputting anything on about half of my keypresses.

I am on the latest official (nonleaked) version of android. Unrooted.
Should I RMA it again? Is there a fix, and has anyone else experienced it?

Thanks for any help!

over 150 views and no reply yet? I dont mean to rush things along, I just wanna make sure i did everything right.. Im in the right section?

If nothing else, could someone else tell me whether they have similar results?
Is typing horrible for everyone on the onscreen keyboard?

I don't use the on screen keyboard much but the few times I have I have not noticed any lag. Sounds like a hardware issue to me.

I'd do a factory reset (yeah yeah, I know). If that doesn't fix it, you can either RMA it again or try to install a 3rd party rom and see if that helps things.

What you are describing is definitely not normal.
