Windows 8 touch screen sensitivity


i have a Samsung Ativ tab 5 (500T) tablet and is quite frustrated with the sensitivity of the touch screen.

As compared to ipads, android and wp8 devices that i own, it seems that the sensitivity is much weaker on the w8 machine. This causes accidental taps while swiping the screen.

It seems to be a hardware issue, but i tested the sensitivity on a surface machine and i found that the sensitivity is also as weak. Could this be a windows 8 problem?

Anyone with similar issues?
