Some G4 users are claiming poor responsiveness or even no response at all when tapping the screen

A sizable number of users are complaining over at XDA about unresponsive displays on the new LG G4. They claim that swipes and taps do not always work and there is even a YouTube video showcasing a Verizon model inaccurately responding to user inputs. As these problems directly impact important features like Knock On and Knock Code, owners are wondering if it this may be a hardware issue or just a software issue related to these special G4 applications.

Nonetheless, not all G4 models appear to be affected. An informal XDA poll of approximately 200 G4 owners shows that 60 percent of users are reporting touchscreen-related issues, while the rest are reporting no complications at all. The source includes a handy guide for owners to check if their screens are facing any similar problems.

Display issues are not special as Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge owners have also reported screen issues immediately after launch. For our full review of the LG G4, see our page here.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
