iPad mini screen interlace

Just making you guys aware of an issue I had with my mini.... Started to notice a very high frequency flicker on the screen. Noticeable when moving my eyes between UI elements such as icons and the dock. Would see a "shimmering" and faint black lines for a split second before my eyes adjusted. Apple swapped it out no questions asked, and the replacement is fine.

Saw this on my early iPhone 4 too.

I find the touch sensitivity to be poor at certain spots.

I've noticed this too, but I think it's the software thinking I'm resting my finger there and not recognizing the first tap.

I've had this same problem. I chalked it up to interface elements being smaller and requiring more precise taps.

In many ways, I think that certain apps could benefit from a mini targeted design, something in between iPhone and ipad interface.
