can confirm this to be a problem. really is strange. is this by design???
@thecripplednewt so you are facing the same issue? Is it possible for you to make a video of the issue and post it on youtube and post the link here? So we can show the people the issue as many don't understand or figure out how to replicate it on their device just by reading my post. I'm thankful you understood and tested it lol, also please post your model number as well.
sure, here you go:
model number is TA-1043
yep, i guess this is by design then? because i demonstrated that in the video too, when i touched it on the sides. yep, same model
It's working like it should be for me. I don't have glass protection. Also TA-1043.
Anyone willing to take protector/glass off and test touch?
Not just the status bar, overall touch responsiveness becomes very low if you're not touching the sides or the back of the phone.
Same issue here.
After having contact Nokia support and after some (non-related) "try-to-fix" suggestion, I decided to remove my screen protector. And yes, my problem resolves by removing the screen protector. (and came back when reinstalling it)
To be complete:
- the notification bar was not working when
* the phone was just laying down and i swiped
- the notification bar was working when
* I had contact with the bezel of the phone during the swipe
* I connected the phone by USB (eg. loading) during the swipe
What type of screen protector did you use?
@francis4dp I actually tested it myself too, works fine without screen protector. I've actually tried multiple, one was a full screen protector, the other just a usual glass protector.
It's actually an issue with all the new nokia phones as I was going through either Nokia 7 plus or 8's forum and people there were reporting the same issue.
I can confirm that this is an issue on the TA-1045. Hopefully Nokia will correct this as most people put a screen protector on their screen.
