    I agree, but It would ease my mind knowing it is not really an issue and it is normal. Now I think it is/was combination of hardware+software.

    The thing is, the in your hand vs. on table looks sooo much like hardware. And I think it still is to a certain degree. Since differences still appear when using more than 2 fingers.

    But it is now 1000x better than before. So at least the software improved it so much, that the phone is now usable.

    But like I said, my rma phone received a few days ago was just as usable as it is now with the 12.1 nightlies update. So I believe the new units might shipped with the fix already applied.

    I agree to this. It's pretty unusable for typing oder playing or similar stuff at the moment. I hope the timeline won't be as bad as with the lollipop update. :D

    On the Belgian facebook page there is said that rebooting fixes the 3 fingers touch on the x-axis. After having installed the firmware ofcourse.

    New update has impact on battery compsuntion it is working but it is workaround.
    I think it is constantly reboots screen while screen is on.
    Now device is hot (my body temp applied) and in YAMTT I see glitching on every touch.

    For me the fix works, I mean I can use the phone again and it recognizes 8 fingers at the same time. And yes there are Problems with 3 fingers on the same x axis but who really needs 3 fingers on the same axis ? I dont wanna say that OP shouldnt fix the hardware problem but this makes the phone usable again.
    But If I get the RMA I will do it because of some other issuses like Microphone...
    I couldnt test the phone after carrying around in my pocket yet but I will test it.

    I can confirm the flashing Franco's kernel r43 fixes the ghost touches. for instance, when typing fast at both sides of the screen there were ghost touches to the center of the screen, not anymore.
    Two fingers on the same y axis displays correctly in YAMTT most of the times.
    Three fingers still show some problem (even after reboot) but honestly i can't see how that is a problem.
    What I can't tell yet is if the problem when the phone is hot (after a walk with the phone in the trousers pocket) is fixed. I really dont think so, but I'll post here my findings either way.
