    Twitchy screen in SS 5.0.1

    In the buglist thread, someone pointed out the screen twitching under your finger.

Worse is while trying to Swype...sometimes it is twitching so much that it is inserting multiple letters, some of which I haven't even touched. This was not happening yesterday when I was using 4.96. Sometimes if of hold the phone a certain way it seems to work, but it is not consistent.

    Twitchy screen - I too have noticed that, but mostly when the phone is in a mostly horizontal position. Bringing it closer to vertical clears it up immediately. Is that your case?
    This problem seems to happen first of all only when it's plugged in.
    But also only when you're not touching the battery cover or metal bezel around the screen.
    You can test it by holding an icon (or the notification pull down bar)
    under your finger while the phone is laying down on a table and plugged in.

    It will move around a lot under your finger. But as soon as you touch the bezel with your
    other hand it stops moving. It has nothing to do with being in a horizontal
    position, because I've tested it while vertical too.

    Hmmmm - I know of only TWO people who have had this issue - I myself only notice it (barely) when the phone is flat on the table ...

    Have you tried testing it while plugged into a wall outlet? It doesn't seem to do it when plugged into the computer.
