Nexus 7 users reporting touchscreen responsiveness issues

Google’s Nexus 7 is one of the hottest selling Android tablets right now owing to its attractive price point but it seems that Asus might have cut more than a few corners to make it cheap enough. Users are reporting a whole host of problems and a majority of them seem to involve the touchscreen.’s Ryan Whitwam recently put up a video showing a decidedly inconsistent touch experience with repeated loss of touch connection. According to Ryan, this occurrence is intermittent and varies in severity.


In addition users have complained about an issue where the glass lifts up on one corner of the tablet. Heat radiated by the processor is believed to be a cause for the issue but it is not known for certain yet. During the large scale production of any device, there are bound to be a few units with problems so this could very well be limited to just a few units. Are you currently using a Nexus 7 and facing issues with it ? We’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
