    Happen to anyone else?

    I clean my screen once a day, but it still happens. I don't know if its moisture from my fingers or the oils in my skin, but when scroll its like I hit a "wall" where my finger gets stuck lol.

    .... Been there done that. I have a weakened immune system, I wash my hands 10x more than anyone on this site. That's not the problem. Unless I produce oils like asap:icon_eek:

    +1. For me it gets sticky after I use it for a while non stop. A quick wash of the hands and it glides like...well, glass.

    I wonder if your hands are too clean. A little oil on your finger may be what allows it to smoothly flow across the screen.

    After I wash my hands the screen is almost unusable. I have to wipe my hands against a shirt or something THEN i can slide on the screen.

    Note : its very difficult to use a touchscreen when your hands are frozen. This biblical snowstorm we are in right now has made me realize this.

    I find keeping it dirtish allows for smoother scrolling. If I clean the screen then my fingers don't slide to well until I get some oil on the screen.

    Oh the problems of a nice touchscreen phone, a bit to dirty and it slides great and looks bad. Too clean and you have a sticky uncsrollable mess.
