    Had this phone for last 2 months. Found touchscreen issues now. Central portion of touch screen stops working randomly (mostly after being in pocket for sometime), sometimes reboot solves it sometimes doesnt. Really frustrating to have a touch phone without the touch. I trusted the company and recommended the mobile to a lot of friends. Now regretting my decision. Thinking of installing Oxygen, will it help?

    Got this phone 2 months ago as well. Very happy with the performance until last week when the touch screen started showing some multi-touch failures.

    Essentially, the screen had a tough time identifying two fingers that are horizontally aligned. E.g. if you type "lalalalalalalala", it would register ghost touches and insert a "d" or "k" or even swype into a new word.

    Very frustrated. Reboots don't do anything. I also tried wiping, upgrading from official cyanogen 11S to cyanogen 12 as well as change kernel to Franco kernel.

    This sucks a lot!

    Strange thing is mine only just started doing it

    So it can't be a hardware or it would of happened months ago wen I had the phone

    So it must be a software issue

    Heard about this a while ago and haven't had the problems, but since today i have some issues too. Sometimes when touching, it doesn't register it or it makes 'ghost touches'. When I accidentally activated screencast and the touches were registered as dots, I noticed there was a constant touching in the corner left under. Because of all these touches I don't make, my own touches aren't always registered. Is there a solution yet?

    EDIT: maybe interesting: This only started happening since I removed my glass One Plus screen protecter yesterday.

    Since today i have touchscreen issues. I have had my phone since februari, but did never have trouble until now. Is there anything that can be done? Typing is very hard now, especially on the right part of the screen.

    I know what you mean, but think about the fact a weakly made or poorly constructed piece of circuitry could break or move, causing a short circuit of some kind. When hardware fails, it is due to mechanical weakness in the design - it doesn't just age and fall apart. Things as small and complex as smartphones are made to very fine margins, and those margins can be crossed very easily.

    I've had my phone since August and I find it wierd that a lot of people are having these issues just now. Part of me is still hoping that an update may solve the issue but I do believe it's faulty hardware design. Could have been such an awesome phone.

    Does the Batch File help you? I have also get this message from support, but don't know if it's worth a try.
    And as other people wrote, the problem occured for me during holidays in Portugal, where the weather is much better (warmer) than in Germany for the time I have the OPO (since December14). Back in Germany the problem is getting better, but when typing fast it still exists. It register hitting other letter and swipe sometimes, however, I write normally.
    I also think that it is a hardware problem and the issues occur more often in warm environment.
    Thinking of RMA it.

    Same issue here after using the phone for 8 months. Installed Oxygen + factory reset to see if that would help, but no... same problem. Some areas of the screen do not respond to touch and swipe, other areas produce ghost touches next to the selected area. Problem started after I moved from Netherlands to Dubai, so maybe to do with warm environmental temparatures.

    Created a ticket, let's see what happens...

    this is one issue which is stopping me from buying a new one for myself... still many users facing it and no clear reason or resolution appears to be there.

    Turn off adaptive backlight, colour enhancement & double tap to sleep in the Display & Lights settings section.
    Also disable ALL gestures.

    This fixed it for me.

    I believe its a software bug which is being propagated to other distributions too. Unfortunately I can tell you CM12 won't fix it.

    I hope this helps some.

    My OPO is also experiencing touchscreen issues -- if I am walking to class, listening to music, and the wifi is constantly dis/connecting, the screen is impossible to use. Scrolling is a nightmare, taps do not register, and it is overall super annoying. Sometimes a reboot fixes it, sometimes it takes multiple reboots.

    Any fix on it yet? I have been asked to install some "fix". Going to try that now, will let you guys know. Also, I have this strong hunch that this problem is happening to those in warmer climates (I am from India and its summers here).

    Just completed installing the "fix". First impression - the logo that revolves during boot animation now revolves at a speed as it used to when I first bought the phone (sometime back, I noticed that the speed had reduced and the sharpness had decreased). Will keep you updated.
