Lastly you can try doing a 'Factory Data Reset' from your recovery such as TWRP, I do not know if the stock recoveries have these but if they do and this is a software issue than this will solve your problem. (Requires S-OFF if it's not available in stock recovery)
If doing the factory data reset does not solve your problem than it is almost definitely a manufacturer defect.
Do take note I did my own research just now to bring you these answers and I am not capable of giving you an overly educated answer like someone else may. Good luck! & I hope the software/case solutions fix it.
Edit: Try disabling Xposed and see if the problem persists too.
Using a Supcase that doesn't touch the display and no screen protector. It does it without the case being on too.
I've recently did a full system wipe and tried a new ROM (Clean ROM) and it still does it, but only in the Play Store, which is why it's confusing me as to if it's a software or hardware issue. I've had HTC send me a replacement M8 out because of it and the new phone ( and previous 2 other phones I had hardware issue with) never did this, which makes me believe that it is indeed a hardware issue. It's just bizarre that it only happens in the Play Store.
When I flashed this new ROM though, it didn't do it initially during the setup of the phone and getting all my apps installed/updated. Once I installed Xposed, it did it, so I uninstalled Xposed to see if it continued and it did, so I'm not sure if it was a coincidence that I didn't have any "phantom touches" before installing Xposed or not.

Haven't noticed anything with different chargers, you could have a hardware problem.

Are you rooted and/or running Xposed as well?
