    Had it here and there on version 10.0.1 but since upgrading to 10.0.2, phantom touch has really intensified. Restarting phone resolves it temporarily but back to it after a while.

    Please help.

    Did you get a fix for this? I too am experiencing the same fault. Worst since upgrading to 10.0.2.

    Have turn off gesture navigation, and use the traditional 3-button layout. The issue is related to the back gesture, that is where the phantom touch/swipe happens.

    OnePlus hasn't acknowledged it and refuses to do so. I'm holding out until S11 is announced.

    I use NFC daily for Google Pay purposes, so have to go the route of turning off gesture navigation.

    Yup it's not at all a solution but for now it solves the problem occurring

    Update: Looks like turning off NFC (a critical feature) might be the only temporary solution. Phantom back button came back even though I had traditional 3 button navigation on, first experienced in the Amazon app. Had to restart phone to get rid of it.

    Turning off NFC is not ideal for me due to Google Pay.

    too many issues, I am fed up with the Ghost touch.
    No word from OP

    Is my first OnePlus, just bought it like last month. Came over from Nexus & Pixels. Now I know the grass is not always greener on the other side :( Wanted a phone that looked modern (I had Pixel 3). But miss it now.

    A solution is turning off NFC but I can't believe this problem still exists because it is not acceptable that having NFC on gives ghost touches

    I also have a ghost touch issue. Mine is in the top right about a half inch in from the top and side.
    I installed a touch screen test app that makes my screen all blue and puts a white dot or line wherever I touch. Within seconds of opening the app, a white dot appeared up there while I was not touching the screen at all.
    It's intermittent and the problem sometimes goes away for awhile.

    I also started to experience ghost touch on version 10.0.2 but I do not help disabling nfc, it still occurs and usually manifests when writing on the messenger

    Does someone know now when OnePlus will resolve the phantom touch issue? I'm still having it from time to time, often it helps for a short time when I clean the screen. But only for a really short time. It has began with Android 10 update and since then it got worse and worse. Pls fix, otherwise I've no other choice than going back to iPhone.

    I also have this ghost touch on my OP7Pro. disabling NFC seems to resolved it, but it's not a solution. I used Google Pay reguraly.

    I'm using OS Beta 7.
