    my brand new 7 pro is showing signs of ghost touches. IT happens in the upper regions of the screen causing the notification bar to shortly slide down and up again. anyone else experiencing the same issues. no clear trigger noticed. using the developer function to show touches it's clear that it only happens in the top part of the screen.

    Someone who has this, should try booting into "Safe Mode", and see if it repros, there. @jdpeters79 ?

    This would remove (almost) all the "extraneous apps/services", that could be causing some issue here (perhaps still a valid bug, but maybe easier to "work around", if you understand the cause...).

    Same issue here, when I start CPU Z my phone starts freaking out and pulls down the notification bar every second... Maybe it can be fixed with a software update?

    Alright, I have mine running in safe mode now. Any app that was not preinstalled is now disabled. Aaaannd as I was typing this I just got 2 ghost touches! (I was just about to type that I would let it go in safe mode for a few hours to get a good sample... Haha) So if it's software related, it doesn't appear to be non-system based. I'm shooting from the hip, but my instincts tell me some of us just have some buggy screens.

    Well that some of us are actually a lot of phones since there are more and more reports of ghost touches.

    Yeah seems like a decent number are being reported. I don't want to go through the RMA process, but I am hopeful it's only a relatively small percentage of phones that have this issue. I went through the Note 7 fiasco, it still gives me nightmares [e]1f602[/e]

    No ghost touch before now. I installed CPUZ and yes I have ghost touches in this app.

    Maybe only a software issue ?

    I had the issue even before ever installing CPU-Z. Seems like it is hit and miss based on the limited sample we have from forums. The one consistent thing seems to be that the ghost touches happen at the top of the phone. who knows for sure though... OnePlus needs to address it.

    Confirmed. I too am having the issue. I had noticed over the past few days that occasionally, the screen seemed to freeze. Mostly I noticed it trying to access context menus in the top right/left corners. As it turns out though, the issue is much more serious as can be seen in this test. My touch screen goes nuts

    I've experienced it a few times and just now in Instagram the app suddenly opened the camera for a selfie on its own. In fact, I've had the selfie cam open a couple of times and close without a camera app even being open.

    Also having the issue. For me it only happened in CPU-Z so far but otherwise was ok. The ghost touches appear at the top of the screen.
