Same issue, too sensitive. Highlighting text and clicking links unwillingly sometimes when scrolling. Probably tempered glass can reduce sensitivity a bit. Using hydrogel film for now.

I have the exact opposite problem, for the past few days - scrolling up seems to not work properly at times, it just stops and needs another swipe to continue moving. Weird.

Its because the touch sensor doesn't follow all the way around the curved edges of the screen, so if your finger is sliding up and down the edge, how it registers may be spotty and give you random clicks instead of full scroll.

The solution is to go to Settings > Accessibility > Timing Controls > Touch & hold delay >Put medium instead of Short. Helped me.

After changing this setting and using for several days, it Definitely helped with the selecting and highlighting text. Only downside I've really noticed doing this is you have to hold down a good bit longer to select something with long press... Good fix overall. Thanks for the info.

    I find the screen to be a bit too sensitive in general, i get long press actions on very short touches. I get the scrolling too (partially because I'm left handed) but on top of that hightlight text

    Do you have "increase touch sensitivity" enabled?
    Nope. I can't imagine what it would be like with that turned on.
