OnePlus 'working' on the 7 Pro's ghost touch issue, comments on battery life



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.

I have got nothing short of 7 hours SOT daily using the 7 Pro. Pleasantly surprised for sure.

Oneplus lost my second phone place after the pro.. Shame it's such a mediocre device. Before the announcement I was so excited I thought it would replace my S10+ as my main phone. Unfortunately it failed to deliver on all counts. Maybe next year.

On my 7 Pro, I'm at 2 hours 36 min SOT with 39% remaining (18 hours off the charger.) On my 6T I got 4 hours and 55 min SOT with 39% remaining (14 hours off the charger) BUT I also got 2 hours and 46 min SOT with 29% remaining (17 hours off the charger.) So I don't know where people get these numbers, but full drain would probably be 4-5 hours on either 6T or 7 Pro (90hz, 1440p) for me. When testing on Geekbench 4 (Brightness all the way down and all airplane mode) the 6T gets about 8 hours and 25 minutes, while my 7 Pro gets a little over 10 hours on the same test, same conditions. (my Pixel 2 XL with a new batter gave me 7 hours 32 minutes, my T-Mobile S9+ is 7 hours 30 minutes)
