Sorry, nothing in cart.
OnePlus recently launched a real top-tier flagship with a top-tier display: the OnePlus 7 Pro. However, the device remains in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. Recently it was discovered that the handset doesn’t offer 3x optical zoom as the field of view while using the portrait mode and 3X zoom vary from each other. Now, in a surprising turn of events, OnePlus 7 Pro users are reporting ‘ghost touches’ or random touches at the top of the screen without their input
In case you have never heard of this issue, ghost touch is when the display of a smartphone recognizes taps that did not really happen. As the name suggests, it is like a ghost touching your display: you see the phone’s response to the tap, but nobody really touched the display. There is also a video which proves the existence of the issue on the OnePlus 7 Pro. According to the users affected, it mostly happens while using the keyboard and inside apps, while unexisting taps are recognized on the upper part of the screen.
OnePlus 7 Pro users can install CPU-Z app to see if their unit is affected by ghost touches as the app reportedly triggers unintended touches frequently. It isn’t clear if the issue is software or hardware related. It’s worth noting that the OnePlus 7 Pro’s display was widely praised for its color accuracy, brightness, and contrast levels. The screen is even rated A+ by DisplayMate, a leading evaluator of smartphone displays.
Furthermore, multiple OnePlus 7 Pro users on OnePlus Forum claim that when typing on the keyboard, on the home screen as well as within apps, the phone’s display automatically registers a tap at the very top of the screen. While the taps are said to last for a couple of seconds, usually, but there are instances where they are extended to a good couple of minutes.
