Anyone else had a similar problem? From time to time, my phone touch screen starts to act quite strangely. The phone does not respond to any touch or slide gesture on the screen. However, if I do a edge swipe up/down/left/right, THAT works just perfectly. So it seems the touch screen HW is working just fine, but for some reason the software does not recognize the regular taps and swipes done in the middle of the screen.

This happens to me too. It might be possible to fix it by going to the settings menu and klicking...wait, clickong doesn't work. It's like the old "No keyboard detected, press F12 to continue" ;)

A reboot fixes this for me. It happens rarely so not a huge issue. A bit frustrating nontheless.

Happened once here too. Reboot fixed it. Could've probably enter the OS with ssh if only wlan would've been up.

I had this issue for the first time a few days ago. Just when I wanted to check a booking code stored on an e-mail. Made everything pretty awkward, also for the people queuing behind me..

I'd say this is already "known" and a duplicate of this question:

If nobody stands against it I will close this question and mark it as a duplicate.

Well it's not a duplicate. The issue here is that only "outer swipes" work, i.e. those starting from outside of the screen. The referred question says that even the touchscreen works in the launcher or using the VKB so definitely not a duplicate.
