    Does anyone have this issue? It is on any screen it will jitter after you interact with it. Shutting the phone off and reboot will help but this issue keeps reoccurring.

    I have not read anywhere that this seems to be a problem except when plugged in to a charger. Does this happen randomly or only while it is being charged? If it is the latter, then make sure you are using the charger that came with the phone.

    Also...sounds nit picky...but make sure your screen is clean and hands clean too. Mine jumps a little if my fingers get a little sweaty or some dirt from work.

    The OP isn't talking about touch screen response, he is referring to the screen literally "jittering" - in other words, a graphical anomoly that appears as if the screen was shaking. I've seen it once on my Droid BIONIC when I was running the older 6.7.2233 ICS leak, in my case it was triggered by the game "Cro-Mag Rally". In that case, a reboot and uninstalling the game cleared it up completely, i've never had it happen again.

    So, after you interact with it means to me a touch screen issue.
    But it could be an app issue....its good to cover all bases.

    Exactly what I am experiencing. My phone is stock. This occurs when not plugged in charger with clean screen and clean hands. The only game I have installed recently is "Dead Trigger" it has done this before that game was installed but now it has become more frequent.

    my wife's maxx did that a couple of days ago. She couldn't select anything, or even shut the phone down. The screen just kept jittering and jumping without touching it. After about 2-3 minutes it quit and worked fine since then?????

    Well it has been about a week and the screen jittering is back. Just curious if anyone has figured this out yet before I take the phone to the corp store where they will have no idea what is causing this. I am sure they will probably want me to uninstall foxfi lol

    Try...

    Settings>Developer Option>Window Animations-Turn those off. Does that help at all?
