Try these steps:

iPhone and iPod touch: Frozen and unresponsive

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Tried those steps, they didnt help at all.
My problem is not anything like freezing.
Its that whenever i touch something, it registers that as a touch about 1-2cm to the left.
EXAMPLE: I touch A on the keyboard, it registers that as L
I touch F on the keyboard, it registers that as S or A.

I did drop it many times to where the sceen broke, so i had to replace it, all before this happened.

From your video, it also becomes unresponsive.

If not of that helped, it's time to call Apple.
