    Since the update yesterday has the ghost touching got worse for anyone else? It was just so bad for me while in whatsapp while typing a quick message (about 10 words) it pressed the person's profile image taking me out of whatsapp three times! It was so frustrating.

    Again, to confirm, no CPU-Z installed, latest firmware, NFC never switched on.

    You may try rebooting into recovery and wiping the cache. That sometimes helps.

    EDIT: I notice it says "Wipe data and cache". If "data" is what I think it is, don't do this unless you want your phone effectively factory reset. If someone else has done this, feel free to chime in.

    I have cleaned the thread. Please take a moment to review the forum rules, especially section 1.3 about Pointless/Off Topic Posts & Section 2 on Code of Conduct. Don't forget that you agreed to keep these rules when you signed up.

    This back and forth between a couple of users in this thread is childish & these kind of conversations have no place on a support thread. This is not a playground. The thread is meant for discussion and support on the 7 Pro Series.

    This is a courtesy warning. Please do not engage in this type of activity, especially in a support thread. Support section is are solely for the purpose of bug reports and discussions on possible fix, not for off-topic, chit chatting, or exchanging insults and personal jabs at other users.

    Moving on, If you read something that you do not like or sounds offending to you or doesn't seem right or is possibly against the rules, please do us a favour and instead of replying back either the report the post or simply use the Ignore User functionality that we have incorporated.

    When you don't follow the above and reply to the post in question, all you do is further contribute to the issue in hand and jump into the flame wars which should be avoided at all costs.

    Please, keep the above in mind while you post on the forum, Help each other, and help the Developers to help you solve the issues and enhance your experience on OxygenOS. If anyone has any questions about this, please feel free to PM me directly and we can hopefully resolve it for you

    Let's keep the discussion related to Support related things and issues moving forward.

    Thank you for your consideration,

    Best report it in the bug thread and then ask for a replacement, seen as the mod said it was fixed in the latest update.
    One would have to say you have a hardware issue seen as software didn't fix it, but I'm sure some will say different.
    It's your device that you paid for, so don't listen to the I'm alright jacks do what is right for you.:)

    I suggest you do a clean flash or factory reset once as the issue has been resolved after the update and there are multiple users who have confirmed the same over XDA as well. Just in case the issue still persists, go for RMA
    Let me know if you need any assistance doing a reset or backing up

    Kinda figured you guys would lock the thread now with all the extra nonsense that has come out since the fix! I'm glad I turned notifications off for this one [e]1f604[/e][e]1f604[/e]

    PS - Thanks to you guys and support for taking the time to read our posts and collect the data to fix the issue. I am on 9.5.7 and I now have no more ghost touch issues, or any new issues whatsoever. Nice to see a timely fix, and glad it's not a larger hardware issue. You guys are definitely more responsive to this stuff than other manufacturers I've used. It definitely is appreciated.

    You can download it with link above in the forum moderator's post. Then go to the system updates and install from local in the system update settings. Or use the Oxygen Updater app in the play store.

    Sorry but you can't upgrade with a T-Mobile phone, which is a locked phone. There's no work around way. OP has confirmed this. There's no local upgrade on a T-Mobile phone.

    Thank you! I went that route, and it worked on the second download. Wiped cache as well for good measure. So far so good.

    I've been on 9.5.1 since I bought the phone. Manually updated via the link the mod posted. Hopefully this thread will die now and that will mean the ghost touches have gone but I will update with any news if or when I experience anything.

    Why are you unhappy with performance? What is wrong? Is the touch sensitivity worse?

    And yes, you can downgrade but you need to do factory reset.

    Improved overall contrast and color performance

    Improved white balance consistency of triple camera

    Improved accuracy and stability of auto focusing

    Fixed issue of greenish tone in some low light scenes

    Fixed issue of noise in some HDR scenes

    Improved contrast and color saturation of ultra wide

    Improved clarity and noise reduction in low light scene of ultra wide

    Improved clarity and noise reduction of telephoto

    Improved clarity and color of Nightscape

    Improved brightness and clarity in extreme low light scene of Nightscape

    No mention about ghost touches. Is it possible the problem was caused by the camera software?
