Hello
I have just received my Mi5 Pro today and after the automatic update it is at Android 6.0.1 Miui 8 Global 6.8.11 Beta
The problem is that my touch screen is way too sensitive and when I am trying to scroll it is opening things.
Trying to scroll the settings menu is almost impossible. Writing a sms is almost impossible.
I tried to find some setting for this but found nothing.
Please give me some advice.
Thank you in advance.
Regards,

Go to Device Info, tap 5 times on Kernel Version, diagnostic tool will start. Try running touchscreen test.

lol , I tried that before but I activated it using *#*# etc. and it only listed 10 tests.
Anyway this time I could run the test but it is only the screen that you see the contact movement.
Nevertheless since I did a reboot it seems OK. If the problem comes back I will post here again.
Thank you for the advice :)

Hi there,

Just confirmed that Xiaomi Mi5s has this issue, the touch screen is non reliable with excessive sensitivity, when I try to swype notifications left or right, try to select certain item in a menu, it always goes wrong.

HOW TO ADJUST TOUCH SCREEN SENSITIVITY :
  • Tap "Settings" or "... Additional settings" (all depending of your Android version)
  • Tap "Language and Input."
  • Scroll to the very bottom of these settings and tap "Pointer speed".
  • Default speed should be %50. Increase the slider to make the touch screen more sensitive and easier to tap. Decrease the slider to make your touch screen less sensitive and more difficult to tap.
  • Click on OK and then experiment with the results.
Works on XIAOMI REDMI 4 PRO/PRIME 3GB 32GB, octacore 2Ghz, MIUI GLOBAL 9.5.3.2 MBEMIFA, Android 6.0.1 MMB29M

The sliding/swiping issue is gone since Nougat (Thanks to andrei80).

Hope this will help.
