Uk service centre

Don't believe UK has service centres to fix the issue, Lenovo customer service said return to supplier, which is no good as seems common problem.

If anyone knows how service centres are fixing them please post

I have the issue too... Imho the stock rom is highly unstable... The phone getting hot, ghost touches and an earphone channel sometimes working and sometimes not! Furthermore we have the quadroot vulnerability. Time for an update from Lenovo/Motorola. Or better: CyanogenMod!

This helped me-
Go to settings- battery - battery optimization. Now set system UI and google now launcher to not optimized. And restart your phone.

This worked so far, did it this morning and so far I haven't had the phone freak out. Thank you so much for figuring this one out.

I found this on Moto X Pure thread on reddit
"Thanks to one of /u/jumnhy's suggestions, I decided to put some electrical tape around and on the digitizer and lcd connections inside the phone. After isolating these connectors with the tape, the problem went away all together. Anybody that finds this thread later on, it might be worth trying if you're trying to save yourself from buying an entire new display like I was."

hey hey hey fellas....atlast found something which satisfies everyone regarding ghost touch....the latest qualcomm has made severe changes inside turbo powered charger which couldn't able to stabilize the input voltage fluctuations. and that is why we all expirence ghost touch... i even checked my socket with Multimeter...hell yeah that was true....

atlast ive plugged stock moto turbo charger to the stabilizer, believe it or not i played nova 3 for exactly 44 mins beside charge was on !

so this caused ghost touch !

hope you guys understood :)

Hola, Consuñta para el moto g4 plus y el ghost touch

Hola, estaba leyendo que pusiste cinta aisladora en el flex del lcd y del digitalizador. lo abriste y aislaste el interior para que no toque cerca del marco? Despues de poner la cinta aisladora la carcasa cierra bien? Tengo 2 g4 plus y me están volviendo loco, no quiero comprar una pantalla, gracias por la data, lo quiero intentar .
Tuviste que despegar el digitalizador de la pantalla? porque tengo entendido que es bastante complicado sin rin romper el lcd.
Adrián.

I found something interesting and that you might not know or imagine, but there was a time when I couldnt use my phone outdoors. Every time I tried to write my password the ghost touch appeared And all those things we face. And its related to autobright system when in places with a lot of sun interfering. When I deactivated autobrightness the problem disappeared when I tried to use the phone on the street. Dont know if its a coincidence, but you might try. Looks like the screen cant handle high brightness for a long time

It isn't related to charger only, because ghost touch is also visible when u max the brightness

I can confirm this. Originally I would only experience ghost touch when using the quick charger. However, I now experience it when the phone heats up or when I turn the brightness up - even when it is not charging. I have tried factory resets etc. but I believe it is a hardware-related issue. I will be sending it back to Lenovo asap for repairs and hopefully they can fix the issue.

Yup, on Lenovo forums mods have confirmed that the have provided service centres with a fix that would stop this without replacing the screens, I believe what they are doing is covering the digitiser with an insulating tape/film. Anyone who have got this fixed do mention his/her screen type using an app called "Dev check" on playstore, together let's fight this annoying engineering disaster [emoji23]

And here i was thinking that it was my phone only which gets this ghost touch when brightness meter is increased, when a rom is flashed, it starts in recovery damn that is a nightmare. My phone is rooted and unlocked so hesitating to visit service center, any suggestions?

If you don't wanna mess up anything then flash the stock firmware, relock the bootloader and visit the service centre. And if u wanna try out for yourself then then there's one thing I believe might work out, I haven't done this myself but I think this CAN solve the issue, try covering the digitiser with any insulating film/tape.
Again I would highly recommend you to relock the bootloader and visit service centre.
And do update your progress here, that would surely help others
