Touchscreen issues with my phone

For some time now, I had been having touchscreen issues with my phone (a Moto G3), where scrolling registered as a click; finally decided to research it and stumbled upon this thread:

Seems like an issue faced by a lot of people regarding this handset, but I am 12 pages in and yet to see any reasonable response from Motorola (Lenovo?).

Trust in this brand eroded and I will likely never buy their phones again.
