    Anybody else find that sometimes taps to open an item in a scrolling list (like Tapatalk version of this forum or Twitter or anything to open a thread from a list) do not work. I find about 20% of the time I have to tap a second time to get a thread to open. Can happen anywhere really. sometimes I even see the little tap animation yet it does nothing and I have to tap again for it to really work. Never happens when typing. Only when clicking to open something.

    I removed my Zagg but it made no difference. Anybody else have this issue? Can you suggest a solution?

    Thanks!

    Same has happened to me. A number of the apps are auto updated on my phone so you have to watch for "app not installed" remove and replace icon. But yes again I have had sensitivity issues with the screen. I thought it was the factory screen protector so I have of course replaced it with an aftermarket one and still experience the issue. A bit annoying and I thought I was alone.

    I have the occasional issue when using the s-pen. not sure if it's a calibration thing, an angle thing, or that I left the factory screen protector on. usually adjusting how I use it "fixes" the problem. can't say I've had any issues using touch.

    Not sure if every phone has it or not, but...
    Does 'Glove Mode' make any difference, positive or negative?
    (May vary from phone to phone; Settings -> Display and Gestures -> Glove Mode)

    There is no display in gestures setting your glove mode in Note 7. There is only a display settings and it isn't there.

    I've experienced this but I wouldn't say it's as pronounced as mentioned by the OP. For what it's worth, the majority of times when I do experience this, it's when what I'm trying to tap happens to be along one of the edges.

    I've experienced this too. It happens most often when I'm trying to tap the "Motion Photos" button that is close to where the screen starts to bend. I've also noticed it occasionally on other buttons though that are away from the screen edge. I don't have a screen protector on the phone.

    How about selections from lists like picking a thread from this forum or opening a tweet in twitter? That is when it happens to me most often. I expect anything on the curve to suck but not the middle of the screen.

    I just tried the phone on this website and it is working okay to select links. I'm using Samsung browser. What browser are you using and have you tried something different to see if that fixes it?

    Is anybody else besides me having screen sensitivity problems? Do you have to tap items more than once to get them to open?

    I'm not having any issue with screen sensitivity. Whether it's a finger tap or the S-pen, the phone has so far been very responsive.
