    Please only reply to this thread if Ghost Touching issues are still happening with 9.5.11+ and not if proximity sensor bugs happen. That's a different bug and should not go here. Contacting support is a good and probably better start than using the Forums. Thumbs up for that, thanks!

    I have had the ghost touch issue for a couple of months. typically it presses top left of the screen every minute or so. This is super annoying as it prevents Google Auto car navigation (we can't touch our phones while driving in the UK). It's almost guaranteed to happen whilst typing messages in WhatsApp, can make several unwanted WhatsApp calls which is unacceptable. The temporary fix I apply is to remove the clear case that came with the phone and smooth down the factory fitted screen protector pressing firmly with my thumb along the top of the phone smoothly, then putting the case back on, it's usually good for a few minutes to a few hours then.

    I haven't got time to read 90 pages of feedback on this issue, just be aware that I have OnePlus 7 Pro 8/256 running 9.5.11 and that the problem has persisted.

    Hi, just like to mention that on oxygenOS 10.0.GM21AA the ghost touches on the top left of the screen are back.

    It's not as often as it were with previous builds, but it is happening.

    If providing specific logs helps, just tell me what to do and I'll gladly share them.

    I'm on Tmobile, 9. 5.11. I keep getting phantom or ghost taps on the upper left corner. Also notice this seems to occur in the morning commute when I'm using Waze. I charge it over night. It happened just now but a reboot seems to fix it. I hope it's not a hardware issue... Any other advice?

    I've had my new phone for about a week now, and started getting this issue. Mine is acting as if the home button is touched. All apps affected.

    OS 9.5.13.GM21AA

    This ghost touch issue is horrible and one plus still unable to fix it after months.
    Quality of their phones is horrible. I am not gonna buy their phones again.
    Even calling hotline they got nobody pick up the call.
    I'm all helpless.

    I contacted support, and they had me upgrade to OS 10.0.1.GM21AA yesterday.

    Problem still exists.

    I found the root cause of my ghost touch issue. I had setup Dynamic Lock with my Windows 10 PC at work. It will lock your PC if it detects your phone is no longer in the area. It uses Bluetooth to check.

    Once I disabled Dynamic Lock, the ghost touches disappeared.

    I'm getting ghost touches on a brand new 7t. The phone is basically unusable! It's taken about 5 mins to type this out : (

    Edit: seems related to the charger being plugged in

    Well? when will something be done ?? is it really impossible to reduce the power of nfc ?? why is nothing being done? sometimes you want to break the phone on the asphalt, buy Samsung and forget it !!!

    Waiting for my 7 pro to be shipped. These threads make me nervous. I am leaving an older samsung device with only a single issue due to touch sensitivity. This is not the things I want to be reading about one plus.

    Huh, I thought I was imagining at first. Sometimes when I was driving, my route description would get toggled out of the blue, without any touching. As if the top right corner was tapped.

    Had this issue on and off so thought I would read this thread, then ironically it started bugging out again so tried to record the touches. You can see them at the top of the screen as I try to make it go back to the web page. Trying to get it to record when it bugged out was difficult, hence it made me go to the system settings.

    Looks like I can't upload files more than 2MB ... I shared it from OneDrive instead https://1drv.ms/v/s!ApDEx2yWG2wKgcF24nnOSZWwZEoPCg?e=KRXApQ

    Edit: this is on a OP7 Pro with 10.0.2.GM21BA

    Hi I have been experiencing phantom taps at the top right of my screen (had loads of whatsapp calls unwillingly initiated because of that) since probably 2 weeks. Can we expect a fix for this? It is rather annoying

    bought the 7 pro during the holiday sales, no issues for the first few days, then randomly got ghost touches, thankfully i like to turn on show touches so i could see what was wrong right away. i updated to 10 in hopes it would fix it, but they started again after a while. they are not too crazy but obviously annoying and frustrating. i get 2 or 3 different spots near the top.
