Has anybody else had this? Its so frustrating and becoming a big promlem on my n7 I think I’ll have to send it back ( bought from Google play) but hope I’m not going to have trouble getting it replaced.
Just read as well that Google have no plans to use flash, so still no ITV player etc… i,m rapidly losing heart with n7August 21, 2012 at 7:53 am #1221
Nobody!!!… scuttles off in search of other forums :(August 21, 2012 at 9:30 am #1223
I don’t think I have this issue. My Nexus tends to be unresponsive when it’s downloading updates when I first switch it on, but no problems once they’re done.
However, the screen responsiveness does seem to be an issue for some folks. :( More details here, with links to YouTube vids, etc. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1792722
As for the flash, if you follow the instructions Jez posted for getting iPlayer to work, you should find ITV player also works.August 21, 2012 at 9:49 am #1224

This is not something I’ve experienced myself, did you find any chat about it on other forums? The only observation I’ve made is that it doesn’t detect my two year old’s teeny fingers very well!August 22, 2012 at 3:49 pm #1291
With regard to the flash issue, blame Adobe, not Google. They’re the ones dropping Android flash support (and don’t forget, iOS devices have never had flash, so they’re in the same boat).
There will be HTML5 versions of the player apps soon, but bear in mind up until now, companies like the BBC haven’t really had any reason to worry about non-flash apps for Android as Adobe only recently dropped it.
As for the touchscreen issue, I’d see what google’s tech support are like. It might be a hardware fault or it may be software. It’s the price we pay for being early adopters! (When the N7 was announced, I said I’d wait a few months for them to iron out the bugs. I have no will power)August 22, 2012 at 5:40 pm #1295
There have been some well discussed screen issues, particularly cases of the screen lifting slightly from the case. The other one that crops up on other forums is a screen flicker. I think I actually see this on mine where it flickers slightly as it adjusts brightness. It doesn’t happen often and is hardly annoying.
I think ASUS have a good rep in general but there do seem to be a couple of common faults coming through. But it’s worth remembering that its always hard to tell how many people suffer from these things and all manufactures will have a return rate that they won’t publish externally. Even Apple!September 13, 2012 at 5:26 pm #1876
I don’t know if this is the only cause, but my screen will always become unresponsive whenever my n7 starts to get hot. Now I will shut it down so it doesn’t overheat, but before I knew about this I found the touchscreen would become worse with temperature and almost unusable past 105F or so.September 13, 2012 at 8:24 pm #1880
I’ve felt my Nexus 7 get a little warm, but never hot – is that after running games or video for longer periods. I’ve certainly had plenty of gadgets in the past that start miss-behaving when hot but have no idea if this is the cause of the observed prob.February 8, 2016 at 11:11 am #50473
Some android apps (especially games or news update apps) can cause unresponsiveness.
