I would empty out the phone and try to bring the housing back into proper alignment. That may be flexing your logic board and causing Touch issues.

I was only going to pop up the screen and then bend it back, I'm too lazy to do that :P

Don't bend the frame while the logic board is still firmly attached to the housing...that is essentially what went wrong in the first place, only it happened accidentally. I would remove the board and battery and torque back into shape.

You could try the logic board outside of the frame to see if the problem persists. That would be indicative of touch ic problems.

Could I leave the battery in? Don't really feel like dealing with the pull tabs...

As long as you don't use any tools that could potentially puncture the battery, why not.

At the end of the day you can do whatever you want ;>).
