    ..... Think I'll wait before getting my OP7 PRO with these ghosts touches. I haven't seen OnePlus say much about solving the problem....

    Mine started this weekend... First I thought it was because of the OxygenOS Beta 9 rom, but then I reinstalled the entire system with MSMTool, back to stock official, and yet the phone is unusable, the problem became increasingly worse. I can barely unlock it. The fingerprint sensor can't read my fingerprint cause it keep being interrupted by whatever "ghostly" touches the screen. This is so sad... I live in a country where there's no official oneplus support, so basically I'm now with a incredibly beautiful paper weight... It was the best phone I ever had... for almost three months... :(
    Just so future buyers know... Mine is the GM1910 6gb ram/128 storage - try to keep away from this one.
    Edit: I forgot to mention... sometimes it gets a little better, then if I plug it into the official charger with the official cable, then the touch just stops working at all, I can't do a single thing.

    I'm also having the same issue from day 1. I suspect the fact they haven't fix this with an update is because of some bad hardware design..
    I'm so disappointed, the phone is unusable with this ghost touch, I'm scared of writing emails.
    I've noticed that disabling the nfc improves the false touches by the way

    Возможно, проблемы с тачем gsm модуля, включите режим полета или вытащите сим-карту.

    Hey there! maybe I am only speaking for myself, maybe someone else mentioned this here prior to me.
    I have a OP7 and there is a lot of ghost touch happening, especially while using specific apps, so I thought.
    I think I figured out what is causing my ghost touch issue but I am not quite sure.

    Here is what's happening: When I touch the screen with two fingers, usually nothing happens except my two touches. But when one of my hands gets in touch with the frame around my charging port my phone registers up to 8 touches. Remember I only placed 2 fingers on the screen.
    On conclusion in my case, physically connecting the bottom frame and the screen with my hands does wired stuff and seems to be reason for my ghost touch.
    I never had ghost touch issue while I didn't touch the frame down at the charging port, and everytime I want to force ghost touch it works.
    In my case I found the reason/trigger for the issue but I still don't know whether it's a hardware issue (I assume it is) or not.

    maybe some of you have the same trigger for their ghost touch too? I'm curious!

    I started experiencing ghost touched today, out of nowhere. I would be playing a game and out of nowhere the phone actives thousands of random touched anywhere on the screen and the phone becomes crazy. Please someone help how to fix this. I am literally considering selling the phone because this is unacceptable. The amount of issues this phone has is just ridiculous.

    Hello everyone,

    Just wanted to take a moment to report that I've been experiencing ghost touches on my One Plus 7 Pro. It's a refurbished model I got from T-Mobile a few months ago (the previous One Plus 7 Pro had glitchy speakers.) The ghost touches were light at first, like weird scrolling patterns, but it got so bad yesterday and today it's unusable. The interface will tap everywhere, especially on the lower part of the screen, won't allow me to type, will randomly close apps... it's a nightmare.

    I'm very disappointed in One Plus as it's my second defective phone in about a year. I'm a bit fan of their design and interface but the bugs are just unbearable.

    I opted for yet another replacement with T-Mobile and I hope this one doesn't break. Otherwise I'll have to start looking elsewhere, sadly. One Plus is a brand I really want to love...

    OnePlus does not sell or refurbish phones.

    Then contact the other digital platform you got it from.
    You'd have to be pretty stupid to blame the phone company for issues on a phone refurbished and sold by a 3rd party
