    Sometimes I can't pull down the notification bar. It happens quite often on the lock screen. Has anyone had this happen? Any solutions?

    Just seems like you're " flicking " your finger too fast and not touching the screen long enough.

    Then why is my "flicking" not working on the lock screen only and it does work when screen is unlocked? I move my finger always in the same way and clearly with screen unlocked it works 90% of the time whereas with the screen locked it works only 50% of the time. Does this make sense to you?

    I only watched the beginning of your video the first time but yes it does seem more problematic on the lock screen for you.. I also just tried the flicking action real fast on my S8+ and it works all the time on locked and unlocked screen.

    Do you play guitar, bass, violin or any other string instrument? It happens that I play guitar and the tips of my fingers are not recognized by the screen, I have to change the position to be recognized.

    I thought you have a OnePlus 5 and can compare it.

    No I don't play guitar, I played some piano long time ago but my fingertips are okay. I have a feeling that it might be a software issue; that on the lockscreen it is made harder to pull down the status bar in order to avoid accidental touches in the pocket. But I'm not sure, only speculating and would like someone more knowledgeable than me to comment on this issue.
