Apart from weird noises
and camera mishaps, OnePlus 7 Pro
users have had to deal with another teething issue, the so-called "ghost" touches
, as demonstrated in a user video above. This touch panel solution has created troubles before but apparently nothing that driver or other updates can't fix, since OnePlus has confirmed for Android Authority
that they are working on fixing the problem.
The recent OxygenOS 9.5.4
update for the OnePlus 7
Pro fixed the audio delay with Bluetooth buds, the double-tap-to-wake gesture and the ambient light display settings. It also enhanced the camera performance greatly by improving HDR, low-light exposure and the white balance correction. The next incremental update could very well dispose of the ghost touching issues, too, but if you want to address it right now, turn off NFC in the switch panel.
OnePlus 7 Pro battery life and dynamic screen refresh
Users have also been concerned about the battery life situation as their phone has fared worse than what one would expect from the OnePlus with the biggest battery pack ever. We, however, found the OnePlus 7 Pro
to perform on par with other phones that sport Quad HD display resolution and large battery packs, namely it had a very similar endurance to the Galaxy Note 9
OnePlus also seems to agree, and from its comments about the 7 Pro's battery life we now learn that the display's refresh rate seems to be dynamic, despite that in the settings you only have 60Hz and 90Hz options.
According to our actual test, the OnePlus 7 Pro, with the refresh rate set to 90Hz (which automatically scales down according to content) and intelligent resolution enabled, exhibits a battery life that is greatly improved in comparison with the OnePlus 6, and very close to OnePlus 6T under the same test condition.
