    Not sure if anyone reported the bug.
    I'm currently on a holiday trip, and what I just found out is that screen completely freaked out on me when I was charging my phone in airport. Couldn't scroll at all, clicks sometimes worked, but most of time wouldn't react. Also if I was in an app, phone would go into random sections of the app, like it was receiving a click command even if wasn't touching the screen. Trying to restart, didnt work. I guess it has something to do with a higher current in the socket. I mean in US charging makes my screen less responsive and leggy, but at least I could use it.

    If you indeed tried to charge the phone with 220 volts ,
    You fried the guts of your phone.

    What charger did you use since the outlet for 220v has a different configuration.

    It may be that your charger is faulty and putting a dc offset on the ground, try another one to see if this resloves the issue.

    What do you mean. Look at the charger, it's rated 100-240v like any other phone charger out there. I've been travelling with Android phones for years and never had a problem of frying my phone with 220v outlet.

    Phone works fine, charged to 100%, I just couldn't use it for an hour which I spent watching vids on iPad..

    Mm, I've been charging with it since I bough my phone (3 months I think), never had an issue with it. I can't test another charger right now since I'm on the road.

    Well as soon as you can try it out and see if it still persists, usually the charger should output 5v no matter what, bit the question is how 0-5V or for example 10-15V is also a possibility with a filtercap/coil gone bad.

    I
    ll try as soon as I can. But I'd blame a dodgy socket in shanghai's airport myself ahead of my charger being broken.

    Yeah that's always an option as well, never know what comes out of those, might as well have been 200dc for all we know.

    I have the same problem with my OP2, screen is less responsive while charging.
    It is happening since I got my OP2, and I got through 2 or 3 updates.

    I don't use it when it's charging, just to send a message or 2 every 20-30 mins and that's when I noticed

    220V is the input. What matters is the output, which is usually between 5 to 5.2 volts. It sounds like a grounding issue.
