carburano, Jul 31, 2014 : Dear OnePlus, my name is Francesco aka Carburano, i'm an Android enthusiast and since 2007 i'm enjoying smartphone world (I created rom for HTC Diamond and LG O2X). When I first heard about your project I immediately thought: "that's cool, finally an open alternative to the nexus... surely i will buy it!" I have been patient for months, I have defended you here on the forum and in italian blogs, I received the invitation and I finally bought it ... I didn't care about yellow display, you hardly notice it ... But your management of complaints was not at the level of your marketing campaign, your deny of the problem, your bans ... Dear OnePlus you know on the forums it's easier to raise the voice.. You have to understand ... In the meantime my 5 days old OPO started to have strange behaviours ... 1- bad grounding issue : when laying on isolating surface, touch is awful. On my bed or on the car stand only one or 2 touch are recognized (today in my car it was impossible to use pinch to zoom in gmaps). It is unacceptable. See this video i made: in the first part of the video i have OPO in my hand (6 touch) second part on the bed (difficult to reach 2 touch). https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7BSKYMyAho3YVVTbzhtbEtmeTg/edit?usp=sharing see my new video against my Nexus 4: 2- ghost touch and very high latency when typing (VOTE THIS ISSUE ON Jira https://jira.cyanogenmod.org/browse/BACON-55): typing performance with opo are very deluding. Sometimes touchscreen goes crazy and it's almost impossible to write something. there are many videos regarding this issue and this is mine (Please watch it at max resolution and fullscreen, you will notice that when tapping fast a diagonal line will appear (it is a swipe)... it happens very frequently and writing an SMS or an Email is very frustrating.): Here another video made by me... OPO vs Nexus 4 Here are other videos about the two problems from other forum users: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4iiwD_Tnp-Q (OPO Vs Nexus 5 - grounding issue) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2ySoY9ug_c https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNWfcYrlL-Q https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjQDcMu63W0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JHi9HQfl8E https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DRyIwsa_Tz4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSmpYQYofOc On the forum i noticed that many of us have problems with the touch... And everybody wrote here, asking for help but you ... After 2 days ... you ignore us ... Tickets, private messages, quotes in the thread ... We don't deserve your attention .. . AH BEFORE YOU ASK I already disabled double tap to wake, double tap to sleep and gestures, i tried factory reset, flash factory image but nothing helped! I removed also screen protector and case... but nothing! Maybe you do not esteem us as we have estimated you. Maybe you prefer to be pay attention only to new customers, giving them another chance to give you 299 euro ... Meanwhile my love is almost ended ... I need your attention always not only in the pre-sales phase. You know, I've worked as head of customer care in a computer company. You know that the maximum response time to a ticket for me was 8 working hours? You know .. If you organize the work you can handle it ... You say you have too many requests. Ask yourself why ... Maybe your product is poor? Maybe you did something wrong, only thinking on marketing? So I have many questions but no answers. OnePlus are you just an illusion or can we expect an answer? I'll give you 24 hours to give me an answer but it should be professional and credible. Please answer to your beloved customer. Let me know. Truly yours. Francesco PS: I will Never Settle until I receive an answer from you! PPS: my ticket number is 36151 PPS: I don't want a refund or another phone. I want a fully working OnePlus One! @Jerry @Carl @David S. @Emmanuel @Ruta @Sparkolo @nguser @Pete @Mike @CM_Abhisek @cyanogen EDIT 31/07 h. 13.55. Jira ticket has been closed with unresolved status. Maybe this means that this is an hardware issue... now we urgently need a sign from OP EDIT 2: another suggestion from our friend @MickeyMouse Try installing this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.dsandler.apps.markers it is a simple drawing app which recognize pressure on supported phones... obviously OPO doesn't support pressure on touch screen while Moto G (tested by @@MickeyMouse) is fully working... I used the app also to test the latency and ghost touch... here attached a screenshot: a you can see on the left there is a swipe with two fingers from top to bottom... suddenly the lines goes a little bit crazy. on the right i double tap from top to bottom... often two taps are recognized as swipe. EDIT 3: I attached also the marker file from my nexus 4 (as you can see it's perfect) EDIT 4: 23:05 31/07/2014. Abhisek of Cyanogen team gave me an answer in Jira... He said that they are still investigating on the issue... So it's not solved and they still don't know what is causing it. EDIT 5: added 2 more videos. I did a OPO vs Nexus 4 for both issues EDIT 6: 01/08/2014 h. 23.30: Finally someone answer me... he was Andy (@Andy ?!?!?) He wrote me a sincere email and he thanked me for the detailed post He said that typing issue (the worst in my opinion) it's software related and they are working hard to solve it. On the other hand he confirmed that Grounding issue is hardware related (we knew this, but as i stated many time this happens also on other devices... BTW thank you @BadCluster your work around let me pinch to zoom on Gmaps while i'm on the bed ) And now second, awesome news... As stated by Andy Typing issue is software related... infact... after 5 minutes i received his email, a wonderful genius (Xavier) posted this comment on Jira Issue: Good news BACON-55 sufferers (I hope). I was tinkering with the /sys sub-fs exposed by the synaptics-rmi-ts driver, and I did this: root@A0001:/sys/class/input/input0 # cat baseline_test TRx To TRx Short Test Failed! 2107: syna_ts_data->vendor_id=2,data_buf=255 imageid=0x14001213,deviceid=0x14001213 2 error(s). And bam! suddenly the ghost swipes are gone! Reproduced consistently after a couple clean reboots. I'm on the last CM11S to date. Could someone else try it? So it seems that he found how to mitigate the problem with imprecise typing (and tap as swipe issue). So let's try... Do this (credit to Harska K from its Jira comment): From Phone: 1. Install: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jackpal.androidterm&hl=en 2. Open, type "su". Ensure it says root@A0001 or something like that. 3. Paste this command in: cat /sys/class/input/input0/baseline_test 4. Press enter. 5. Should be done, no need to reboot. From Computer: 1. Plug phone in, enable debugging. 2. sudo adb shell (if linux, don't know about Windows) 3. cd /sys/class/input/input0 4. cat baseline_test It's worth noting that I did not have any "errors" when I ran this. Xavier did. It works!!!! But it's still no perfect... So... It's not a definitive solution but it's a very good start and I'm sure now CM Team will solve it! So Thanks Andy and Xavier! You made my day!!! UPDATE 05-08-2014 the amazing developer Xavier discovered that ghost swipe issue is touchscreen firmware related and it should be fixed by Synaptics. In the meantime he merges his patch in a kernel available HERE: http://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus-one/general/kernel-ghost-swipes-tentative-fix-t2839378 UPDATE 12-08-2014 Hi guys... finally... i settled. My ticket (and RMA request) was closed whitout any explanation when i was away (the only email I received was from Andy... but it was only a simple response email without any useful support. Other than that my RMA request was not considered at all. So... i decided to give my OPO to my father (he needs a big phone to read and call and see videos - STOP. OPO is perfect for this but it is not good for my use). I'm angry and i feel cheated by customer support. It's not possible that an hardware problem like grounding one is not handled by this company. I'm sorry but I think also that ghost swipe problem will be not solved soon (at least not officially). I just buyed a second hand 16 gb - 2gb LG G3 from a friend of mine I know it's not good, fast and open source as opo but money aren't growing on trees and I hate to use mine for this not working device... ah... and touchscreen is working great (10 touches in my car while it's on car stand)... Goodbye Oneplus. You simply were an illusion.
