For all accounts, the OnePlus 7 Pro is the best phone launched by the company so far, with a higher price that reflects both. But some of the first buyers report that they have noticed phantom screen presses, where applications respond as if something had been touched on the screen even when the phone is idle.
OnePlus is aware of the problem, according to Android Police and says that it treats it as a high priority after successfully reproducing the problem. If you just bought this phone, you certainly expect that ghost touches are something that can be removed through a software update and are not indicative of a deeper hardware dilemma. The OnePlus 7 Pro has an OLED screen, the first of its kind, with an update frequency of up to 90Hz.
The Verge has been able to reproduce the ghost pulses in one of our OnePlus 7 review units. Like some users in the OnePlus forums, it is easier to observe the problem with the CPU-Z application. But others have found it in Messages and other applications where the ghost touches would be very annoying.
This does not seem to be a universal problem that affects all OnePlus 7 Pro phones, but we will be attentive to the situation and provide the updates that OnePlus offers with respect to a solution.
