Dead spots on touchscreen

    I have been noticing some dead spots on my touchscreen. It's not 100% consistent but sometimes I touch the screen and nothing happens. Sometimes it gets better when I reboot but not always. I removed my protective screen cover to see if that was the problem but it is still happening.

    Is this most likely a hardware issue, or should I consider restoring? (the phone is not rooted).

    I think I've had it less than a year so it might be still under warranty.

    Anyone else having a similar problem?

    any ideas on fixing it?

    I may have noticed this on one occasion, but it may have been a fluke because I haven't experienced this recently. It might have just been bad contact with the screen.

    If you go to settings->developer options->show touches, you can see the phone track the touch screen input and verify if it is picking up all the touches accurately.

    I've noticed on mine I get dead spots sometimes and other times I get super sensitive spots.

    reboot and all is fine, just annoying. :/

    I've had this same problem with every touch screen i have ever had. Usually reboot fixes it.
