I understand your frustration. there are some basic things to start with of course which include...

Is the screen clean and free of debri (dust, grease, oil from your skin)

is there a tempered glass screen protector on the phone. if yes how long has it been there?

the last resort is of course to do a factory reset and wipe the phone clean of any and all information. (I realize this is a last resort but it may prove the most effective)

please let me know the answers to my questions so I can further assist you.

Did your issues start after the ios 9 update? If so, Apple is working on a patch for the issues
