    I...don't think you can feel leaking current. But if there are grounding issues you will most definitely feel a reduction in sensitivity of the screen or the FP sensor.

    Seems like all these issues are still from the early Aug batches. I wonder if the new batches have been fine.

    The FP sensor works just fine, it's that when I hold the metal frame I get this unpleasant tingling feeling in my hand, like getting a minor electric shock continuously.

    It's a weird issue which I have just noticed in the last day or so which I think i am seeing. I've not seen or had any issues with grounding, lag, etc. However, I noticed when viewing a photo i had taken that there were 2 faint vertical lines showing. It's as if the screen is split into 3 sections and there are these lines going top to bottom with a slight fading of the screen colours.

    Not yet tried taking my preinstalled screen protector off yet as I'm unsure if it is this which might be causing it. Have also tried playing with the brightness and can't see that making any difference yet.

    Will try and take a photo, went to take one last night but the lines had vanished and couldn't see them.

    I was viewing them straight from the Files app. Will try Google photos see if it's the same and try and get a picture of it.

    Took these when i saw them, afraid it's fairly poor quality photos but have circled the lines which I am seeing on the phone...

    Does this only happen in photos with poor lighting? Are the bands on your screen only for that period when you are viewing the photo or are the bands saved as the image data?

    The bands are not in the source photos, the source photo i used was an outside shot, i just used it with the sky as that is where i first spotted it.

    I can still see it with screen brightness turned up full. But I have just noticed if i'm viewing the phone in a well lit area i can't see the bands, but if i go to the back of a room where it's a bit darker, they're back again.

    Hi :)

    Ordered ten days ago (let's say October 4th approx.)

    Phone build : 6th August

    Problem : Home Button malfunctioning, probably due to a grounding problem.

    I think you should find our why the vote percentage is way off by my calculations the OK no issue's should be 39% and not 53%
