How to Fix the 'Ghost Touch' Problem on Android and iOS Smartphones
While smartphones with touchscreens have become ubiquitous and the quality of materials used to make them have improved, many smartphones of today continue to experience a rather annoying issue called 'ghost touch'. In this article, we have put together a list of solutions that could help solve the ghost touch issue once and for all.
- Related: How to fix screen burn-in on your smartphone
At the outset, let us warn you that while the ghost touch issue can be caused by several external factors that normal users like you and me can fix by simple troubleshooting, there may be some cases wherein a visit to the service center is inevitable. Especially if the underlying cause is a hardware issue.
With the intro and the disclaimer out of the way, let's try to understand what this 'ghost touch' problem really is and how it affects the usage of your phone.
What is the ghost touch problem?
- Solution 1: Disconnect the charger/cable
- Solution 2: Kill apps that are running in the background
- Solution 3: Remove the screen protector
- Solution 4: Clean the phone case
- Solution 5: Clean the display
- Solution 6: Reset your settings and keep your device updated
Perform a factory reset
Disassemble the screen assembly (for advanced users only).
- Contact a service center for repair/replacement
Ghost touch (or touch glitches) are the terms used when your screen responds to presses or inputs that you're not actually making, or when there's a section of your phone screen that's completely unresponsive to your touch. Exactly what the 'ghost' presses will do varies from device to device, but it seems to be more common in some devices than others.
Some of the devices that have been (in)famous for being susceptible to ghost touch issues include the old Motorola Moto G4 Plus , several models of the Apple iPhone—including the iPhone X , iPhone 11 , and the iPhone 12 series, and some older OnePlus devices. All of that is to say, if you're having a ghost touch issue, it's probably not a problem with the software.
In more severe cases it's a hardware problem with your display and the way it's housed inside the chassis of your phone. If you're an engineer and are ok taking electronic devices apart (and have all the required specialty tools), multiple people have reported success simply by disconnecting the screen from the data connectors.
In other situations, water or dirt damage (or beneath the screen protector) can cause 'phantom' presses that aren't being made. There's no definitive single cause, or fix, for the problem, however, so you'll have to use some trial and error to fix the issue. This is especially true if you are out of warranty and wish to avoid a (usually expensive) visit to the service center.
How to fix the ghost touch issue on Android and iOS
Listed below are some basic steps that you can try on your smartphones before you delve into more advanced, complex fixes. Note that these steps are applicable to both Android and iOS devices.
Disconnect the charging cable
Surprising as it may seem, many a time, ghost touch issues happen only when phones are connected to a wall outlet. This is especially likely if you happen to use a charger/cable of spurious quality. Basically what happens here is that these chargers and cables affect the functionality of the digitizer—which is the sensor that detects your touch inputs.
If you are facing this ghost touch issue while charging your phone, it's best you replace the charger or charging cable with a new/better one. To check if a charger is really the cause, try charging the phone using a different charger/cable combo and check if the issue persists.
Kill apps that are running in the background
A simple solution that can solve plenty of problems! Having many apps running in the background can cause a lot of issues. Generally speaking, open applications in the background can cause glitches on the software level which may result in ghost touch issues. So clearing them is a solid first troubleshooting step.
Although in Android, the process may vary from device to device, the rule of thumb is to open the overview panel, either by pressing the overview button on the bottom right. If you have gesture navigation on, you can either swipe up from the bottom of your screen, hold and then release. If you have a two-button navigation you simply swipe up from the middle of your screen. After that, depending on your device, you either swipe up or press the "Close all" button.
To clear apps in iOS, you swipe up from the bottom of your screen and then using one, two, or three fingers, close the individual apps that appear on your screen.
Remove the screen protector/tempered glass
If you're lucky, the problem for you is being caused by a screen protector that's got a tiny piece of dirt stuck behind it. The advice then is to remove it, clean your screen thoroughly and then replace the screen protector. Be sure, however, to replace it with a good-quality screen protector.
If you try to skimp on the quality, you may end up with screen protectors and tempered glass that are made of poor materials. These types of "protectors" cause more damage to your phone than save them from cracking. Basically, the poor quality of materials used on such screen protectors affects the touch sensitivity of the screen beneath it.
A more extreme position would be to avoid screen protectors altogether since most modern smartphones come with adequate scratch and fall protection thanks to better quality glass made by Corning (Gorilla Glass) or AGC (DragonTrail).
Clean the phone case
Especially with the popularity of edge screens, the actionable area in many smartphone screens now extends to the sides of the device. That not only can lead to unwanted touch detection issues caused by our hands, but also when a phone case is not properly installed, or worse, is dirty.
Similar to the screen protector's tip above, remove the phone case, clean it properly and then reinstall it on the phone after drying. Remember to take special care if the case has a special feature—like built-in magnets, battery, or other—before cleaning the accessory.
Clean the display
As simple (or outright stupid) as it may seem—before we move to more advanced troubleshooting methods, it is always best to try and thoroughly clean the display. To do this, take a slightly moist soft cloth and wipe the screen. Follow this step with a dry cloth and wipe it clean. It is actually a good practice to wipe your screen every couple of weeks to prevent any smudges or dust accumulation which could eventually lead to the dreaded ghost touch issue.
Reset your settings and keep your device updated
Before we move on to more advanced solutions like a factory reset or device disassembly I heavily recommend making sure that your device is running the latest version of its software whether it is iOS or Android . Assuming that you keep your device updated one last effort to resolve the problem is to reset all of your settings to default. This process is almost the same as a factory reset but automatically maintains your data.
On iOS navigate to Settings > General > Transfer or Reset iPhone > Reset and choose Reset All Settings . This will only reset your device settings and will not delete any of your files. Keep in mind that network settings will be cleared too, so you will manually need to reconnect your device to your Wi-Fi. The home screen layout and keyboard settings will also be reset.
On Android, you will have to do a safe factory reset that will sustain all your data but reset all other settings. To do that you go to your settings and search for " Back up and Restore " (usually located in Settings > About Phone ) and from there you can choose where you want your backup to be stored: Locally on your phone or your computer or in a cloud. If you need more information on this process, read the linked articles below.
How to fix ghost touch issue: Advanced troubleshooting
If none of the relatively simpler solutions worked for you, chances are high that your phone is suffering from more severe (i.e. actual) ghost touch problems. As such, your options aren't quite as straightforward.
This is because the cause can now be due to either a software issue or worse, a hardware problem.
To check if buggy software is behind the issue, the easiest method is to perform a factory reset of your phone. This will bring your phone back to its original factory settings. If the issue was caused by an unruly app or a biggy software update, chances are high a factory reset will solve it.
Warning: A factory reset will delete all your data. Please make sure you backup all your data before going ahead with this step

- How to factory reset your Apple iPhone or iPad
This step is definitely not recommended for the average smartphone user. For folks who have the technical know-how to perform this task, and if they have the right tools at their disposal, opening up the affected smartphone, disassembling it, and putting it back together could potentially fix the issue.
Many people (and indeed, a bunch of YouTube videos) suggest that taking the phone apart, disconnecting the screen from the data connectors, and reseating all of that have been enough to fix the problem for them.
You could, of course, pay a third-party repair shop to reseat your screen in the connectors for you to see if it fixes the problem, which would be cheaper than a whole new panel.
Return/take it to the service center
The unequivocally best way to fix a screen glitch problem is to return the device to the manufacturer, ideally under warranty for a replacement. When within warranty, many companies will offer a new device in exchange for the faulty one, though some may opt to replace the screen instead to try and resolve the issue.
Although this is a simple option, it's probably not the quickest unless you're walking into a store to hand it over for a new one. If your handset is out of warranty, you'd probably have to pay for repairs and a swap won't be offered.
As you might have realized by now, there could be multiple reasons that cause ghost touch issues. And you might have to perform a series of steps to really know what is causing it. In case the simper steps do not work for you, the more advanced methods (save for the factory reset options) are best performed by a trained technician.

I am trying to read or searching something ghost touch starts now I m piss of fix pls
I like how while I’m trying to read it’s doing the ghost touch and trying to not let me read and, it’s getting really annoying and I can’t do anything, especially since I’m an artist and it’s screwing me over
For the ghost touch solution, I took away the tempered glass and there was no problem at all. After a few days, the screen was getting minute scratches, so I applied a film screen protector from Gadgetshieldz to protect it from scratches, I thought the ghost touch issues would come again, but the problem didn't occur. Also, the fingerprint was working properly for me! The tempered glasses that are not of good quality, will create these issues.
The "ghost touch" starting happening with my phone yesterday, and I can't tell exactly what it is because it doesn't respond when i tap anything on the screen. It just taps on everything by itself and I can't do anything about it, other than take it to a repair shop and I was hoping to resort to that last. I can't even power off and restart my phone because that requires for me to touch the screen and as I said before: everytime I touch the screen, it doesn't respond. The only things that work are the power and volume buttons. Letting it die, charge over night, and then powering it back on this morning did not work. I can't even get into my phone because anytime its died or been powered off in the past it can't use my finger print when it first starts up, it makes me put in my pattern, which I cannot do because it doesn't do anything when I touch it. The phone is a lg 40 thinq. If anyone has any suggestions, other than going to a repair shop, that'd be great thanks.
Im a student and i use a school Chromebook but this ghost touch thing needs to stop its annoying
I once faced the ghost typing issue in my iPad. I tried some common ways. Well, finally, I had to use TunesKit to fix my iPad stuck in the issue quickly.
I have a Motorola One and had to change the screen twice because it broke. The second time they may not have used an original screen and now its broken again, the colors are all messed up ( vertical lines in usually white go through it) and recently it started with phantom touches. They are so bad I can't do anything on my phone anymore, not even shut it down. This pretty bad because I refuse to spend more money on changing the screen at it'll be a while until I can get a new one aaaaaaa
oh no, idrk what to do with my tablet anymore, because i also refuse to spend more money on it. i hope yours gets fixed soon!
I found out how to fix this issue, with my chuwi ubook. I had issues with phantom touches on the left side of the screen. It was extremely annoying. It would come and go as it pleased. You may not like it, but you'll have to factory reset. Luckily I just got it, so it was easy for me to redownload the programs I had before it. Hope this works for everyone else. Good luck. I signed up to give you guys this information. So i deff hope it works. -_-
Hello! So I also have this problem and I had tried a factory reset on my device, but nothing happened. It may be because I have a different device then you? I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab s8 or a8 (Idrk which one) one of those two. But all I did was let it restart for around 24 hours?
Hello everyone, I have been lurking around trying to solve this issue for myself, but I am wayyy to young to do any of this. I can't take anything apart nor use an igniter. I have to try the *simple* things. I tried wiping my device down. It only worked for a few minutes. Then, started again. I was on another website and found some more *simple* tricks. This "Ghost touch" thing started a little bit over August. It then stopped in early October. It has been free of this touch thing since now. A day after Thanksgiving, the device had starting touching itself again. I had no clue why. I didn't think it was a software issue, knowing that even when it updates or restarts it doesn't stop. I don't think it's a hardware issue either. People say the digitizers may be the problem, as it may need to be put back it place, or something? Though, wouldn't it mean you had to have dropped it hard enough? I haven't dropped my device for months. Not even before the touch came back. The next thing I have came to was that it may be a virus? I don't actually have any proof of this. I would assume, though, that if it were a virus...would it really start, then stop, and then come back? If anyone can help me with this problem, you would be a life saver. I've nearly had this for 2 years. Almost going to be 2 during Christmas. I don't assume it's the tablet breaking down itself, or getting old. If you can answer, that'll be great! Thanks a-lot!! c: Edit: I've also found out that when on games, sometimes you can see where the device is tapping on. It seems to be at the bottom. But, when I turn the device around, it interacts with the top instead. Just thought I should say this in case it helps.
Just want to add that I think the issue for me (iphone 7) was static electricity. I did process of elimination to come to this conclusion, since I know it's not really a well-documented reason. I know in my case, it's not a hardware issue because when it first happened (some time in autumn) I simply updated and cleaned the phone it worked fine until now (winter), where it started acting up like crazy again. It's not a software issue because I've updated it, reset it, and everything but the ghost touch was still there. The last possibility was that it was an environmental issue. I noticed that when I played rhythm games to test the touch screen, if I breathed on the phone to temporarily add humidity (to "settle" the charges) the ghost touching would immediately stop. Then I realised right now it is winter where I am, and static charges tend to be more present in the air because it is drier. I noticed that when I had the humidifier on the issue wasn't there. Furthermore in my room I sit next to the window which I had covered in a plastic film to prevent a draft from coming in. The plastic also contributes to the static I think because when I moved elsewhere in my room/apt the ghosting was gone again. This also explains why at first cleaning with water was also a temporary fix, since the room was still static-y in itself the screen would quickly act up again... Perhaps this might also be your issue, at least to test out. Maybe the issue is prevalent in a new model phone (like the iphone X), since the digitizers being made are probably more sensitive to static charges, which makes sense given that technology is improving. Or maybe it's just something internal, but not necessarily a hardware issue (I read other comments that say zapping the phone helped). Hopefully this helps!
Hello! I am also having the same problem you are. My ghost touch also started in near autumn, around August-October. It then stopped during late October. It's now been around 2 months. I thought it was fixed when it stopped, but, a few days ago, a day after thanksgiving, it had began to start again. I think your right. I think during the start of fall it turned down the static. Now that Winter is starting again, its much more dryer. Where I live, it's really dry. Most of the year. Especially during fall. Probably, when fall was coming to an end, the dryness was dying down, causing the static to also die down. Now that winter is coming, the dryness is coming back. I don't think that I should get an app, that may damage it even more. I don't assume it's a virus? I don't think it's a screen issue. I cleaned my screen and it only lasted for a few minutes. I don't think it's a hardware issue either. I agree with you, I think it's more of an environmental issue. Knowing that it's just the static around the device. Again, devices aren't perfect so we have to deal with it. If your trying the zapping technique, I wish you the best of luck! I think I'll just press around the screen. I researched about it and learned the digitizers inside the device may need to be snapped back in place. So, if the zapping technique doesn't work, I assume you try the snapping option. You may need to use your finger nails and slide around the screen with a little bit of pressure. It may help. Good luck! 😇👍🏾
Good to know I'm not the only one noticing weird patterns in the phone behaviour haha. Actually since I figured out it may be an issue with a lack of humidity I've been able to avoid the ghost touch since I made that first comment. I just avoid "static hotspots" (what I'm calling it) in my home. For me this really only at my desk, since it's near the window that I covered with a plastic sheet (to prevent draft). I'm pretty convinced it's the plastic, as well as not being able to open the window causing that area to be a hotspot. It's like when you rub your head on a balloon, those types of materials insulate and tend to gather static on its surfaces... You'd think it be a negligible amount of static, but I guess the sheet is big enough to mess with my phone. -_-" Maybe you can also do some "experiments" to figure out where the ghost touch appears the most in your home. I found a quick fix in turning on a small humidifier in these "hotspots" but I think it's best to just avoid using your phone in them, or open a window if you can. I also think the "zapping technique" I mentioned is that ignition thing, but I'm also not well-verse in fixing my phone so idk. Either way, I luckily don't have to try it since my phone is okay now (hopefully forever), although I wish I figured out it was a humidity for me before I destroyed my screen protector lool. Hopefully it's a straightforward issue for you too! Good luck as well~
I have LOTS of windows in my house. Pretty much each wall has atleast a window on it. But, I've found that this one area does a pretty good job of stopping the ghost touch. I did a factory reset on my tablet. It seems to work when I turn the screen one way, but the other way has the "Ghost touch". Since I have a tablet, it isn't very relatable to a phone (In some ways it is tho). Where I get most of the touches were near a sliding door which I assume carries most humidity knowing it is really just a giant window. Where I find less humidity is near two small windows and my bedroom. I also had realized when I charged my tablet for two long, it starts acting up. But, my tablet stopped touching itself, so I assume it had stopped. If it does start again, idk what I would do. I don't actually know if I have a screen protector or not. I got this for Christmas so I didn't actually BUY it. Hopefully, I never get this weird behavior again, but if it starts again, I may end up saying goodbye to it. Mostly, because it's almost been 2 years and thats when most devices die down. Anyways, I hope your device never has this "Ghost touch" again! Have a great day! Edit: My tablet has "Ghost Touch" again-..únù
I solved my ghost touch problem by downloading an app called "partial screen" on playstore,, works by manually placing a dormant region provided by the app on the area where the ghost touch problem is,, very simple and works perfectly for me.
Do you have a way that doesn't need to get an app? Nothing too extreme though. Just something very simple?
ahh! thank you so much. it fixed 99% of my ghost touches, and now my phone works again! you're a big help :)
I seem to have gone into this, went into emergency mode, then came back out and things for now look ok. Rebooted, as I couldn't before that. The first fix for anything that has computer components (phone, tablet or computer) is to reboot.
This article is completely useless. Your solutions are basically: return it, take it apart if you're a phone repair technician (which most people aren't), or do some weird crap with a lighter that could potentially damage your phone and has no guarantee of working.
8 Ways to Fix Ghost Touch Problems With Android
Is your phone acting as though a ghost keeps tapping and touching the screen? Here are all the steps you can take to fix it.
Ghost touch is a frustrating screen issue you can encounter with Android displays. It's when your screen reacts to touches that aren't happening and starts moving or tapping buttons on its own.
This ghost touch issue can be more annoying than a physically damaged screen. To help, we've compiled a list of suggestions to help you resolve the ghost touch issue on your Android device.
What Causes Ghost Touch on Android?
Ghost touch occurs when your phone screen responds to inputs or presses that you didn't initiate, or when there is a part of your screen that is entirely unresponsive to your touch. In this state, your phone opens apps by itself and randomly taps on buttons without you even touching the screen.
If you're experiencing ghost touch, it's probably not a software issue. Usually, it's a physical problem with display components, like a faulty digitizer or a cracked screen. In some cases, dirt underneath the screen or water damage causes ghost touch.
However, because there is no single definitive source of or solution to ghost touch, you will have to fix it through trial and error by attempting each of the solutions below.
1. Replace Your Phone Charger
Surprisingly, ghost touch difficulties often occur only when phones are plugged in. This is especially likely if you use a low-quality charger or cable. Basically, these chargers and charging cables affect the functionality of the screen digitizer, which is the layer of your phone that reads your touch signals.
To check if the problem is caused by your charger, charge your phone with a different charger and cable combination and see if the problem persists. If your charger or cable is the problem, we recommend that you replace it with an official one from your phone manufacturer.
2. Clear the Apps Running in the Background
Having many open apps in the background can cause various problems. In general, applications running in the background can cause software glitches, which may lead to ghost touch. Therefore, clearing them is a good initial troubleshooting step.
Although the process may vary from one Android device to another, the general guide is to open the overview panel by hitting the overview button or swiping halfway up from the bottom of the screen if Android's gesture navigation feature is enabled. You can swipe up from the bottom of your screen to clear each application.
3. Clean Your Phone's Touchscreen
The display requires direct contact from your fingers to perform any activity. This means that when the screen holds foreign particles, such as dirt from your fingers or dust from the environment, that dirt can impact your screen's performance and cause ghost touch. So clean your touchscreen regularly to rid it of dirt and grime.
To clean the screen:
- Turn off your phone.
- Gently wipe your screen using a soft and slightly damp cloth.
- Wipe it clean with a dry cloth.
You may also experience ghost touch if your screen is cracked. So keep your phone safe from cracks or scratches. If the worst happens, follow our guide on how to handle a cracked phone screen .
4. Replace Your Screen Protector
Screen protectors are extremely useful for shielding your phone from cracks and scratches , but they can also cause issues. If dust or moisture gets between the screen protector and your screen, it can cause ghost touch problems.
Low-quality protectors also do more harm than good to your phone screen. The poor quality of materials used to make such screen protectors affects the touch sensitivity of the display beneath it.
Try removing your screen protector to see if that fixes matters. If it does, wipe your screen clean, and then replace the protector with a higher-quality one. Additionally, ensure the screen protector is installed correctly, otherwise, you may experience similar problems in the future.
5. Take More Breaks Between Screen Usage
The operating temperature of your smartphone must be at a certain level for it to function properly. For your screen to also work without issues, take breaks between usages and avoid using your screen at a stretch to prevent overheating.
Also, avoid using your phone in extreme heat, such as in direct sunlight. Heat causes electromagnetic interference, which disrupts your device's performance and may trigger ghost touch and other issues.
6. Keep Your Device Up to Date
As previously stated, ghost touch is rarely the result of a software glitch. Even so, outdated software or bugs can cause your phone to create ghost touch problems. Ensure your device and apps are up-to-date to fix these, as most bugs get patched with updates.
Steps for checking software updates vary across Android devices from different manufacturers and Android versions or skins.
To update your Android phone :
- Open your phone's Settings app.
- Tap System > System update .
- You'll see your device update status. Tap the Check for update button to install available updates.
If the steps above don't work on your device, open the Settings app and search for System update or Software update using the search bar or button at the top. If there's no matching result, check online for specific steps for your phone model.
7. Factory Reset Your Phone
Assuming your device is up-to-date, another way to fix software-related ghost touch problems is to reset all your settings and content to default. If buggy software or an unruly app is the cause, this will fix ghost touch by eliminating underlying software issues causing it.
You should back up your Android device before resetting your phone. This is important because a factory reset will clear all your data, and you can't recover deleted data.
Before resetting your device, try restarting first. Restarting can help fix certain software issues and doesn't come with the high price of resetting and starting from scratch.
To reset your phone:
- Go to Settings .
- Go to System > Reset phone .
- Tap Erase all data .
- Enter your password or PIN to confirm.
- Select Continue , then tap Erase all data to start the reset.
These steps might not work on your device because of Android's fragmented nature. Luckily, there are different ways of factory resetting your Android device . But if none works, a simple online search can point you in the right direction.
8. Take Your Device to a Service Center
If you haven't been able to fix your phone's ghost touch problem, it may be time to replace the screen. Perhaps the screen is deteriorating, water got into it, or it has a faulty component. In those instances, you'll need to find a trained technician to replace the screen.
Like other screen issues, the best way to resolve ghost touch is to take your device to a service center for a fix. If your phone is still under warranty, your phone's manufacturer may offer to replace it with a new one or may choose to repair the screen instead to try to fix the issue.
Get Rid of Ghost Touch on Your Android Device
While there are several potential causes of ghost touch on Android, you can perform basic troubleshooting steps to fix most of them. If the basic fixes don't work for you, seek out a qualified technician to disassemble or replace your screen.

I have the same problem as the original poster... Bought mine today and was messing around with it. Then I noticed the tablet 'doing stuff on its own'. After a quick test I realised I could reproduce the error by holding it in landscape and twisting it slightly. This resulted in either the back button being activated (lower left corner activated / pushed) or the settings notification area popping up (lower right corner activated). So I guess they should have used a stiffer material as the back cover. But then again it seems almost inconceivable that the testers wouldn't have encountered this issue, if it was universal... so I'm guessing that our units are faulty - sonofabitch! At the same time its my very unqualified guess that it isn't something which can be fixed by new firmware. Edit: Just thought of something ... perhaps thats why the UI of the new firmware has changed? No more 'buttons' in the lower corners (as far as Im aware).

The demo model had the same issues. It also seems the issue is quite widespread judging by the Xperia tablet Z support forum.

The same happens un my LTE 16Gb .244 black versión... It happens ramdomly, above allí while attached to Power stock charger, but not always... If Sony doesn't want us to unlock bootloaders and install other ROMs tan stock, why they release such a crappy firmware? It also happens in my c6603 sometimes un the same conditions as my Tablet, so i think is firmware related Sent from my C6603 using xda app-developers app
So that's what's happening I am having the exact same issue, in fact I didn't realize it was the flexing that was causing the issue until I read this thread. Now I can reproduce it consistently. I am so bummed, I LOVE this tablet, Sony has a lot of great stuff they put into this tablet and the form factor is amazing. I am pretty disappointed though because this makes it pretty hard to use. I checked and I am running the latest firmware. For what they charge for this thing you would think it would be a better piece of hardware. Back to Best Buy I go I supposed.

My brand new Tablet Z running 4.2.2 is acting out aswell. When in portrait mode, it seems obsessed with ghost tapping home or return... Edit: Turned screen "logging" on. Dammit, the screen goes haywire at just the tiniest bit of flexing - even when NOT flexing... Sigh.

I've gone back to the correct fw for mine and it's settled down a bit, it still does it now and then, but nowhere near as much as it used to. Sent from my C5303 using Tapatalk 4
I got my XTZ and it works just great! No ghost /phantom touches at all using stock 4.1.2 even when i move harder the tablet. I think everyone who experienced this should replace tablet with new.

I got 5 of these in for our staff - 2 of them have the same issue. Phantom button pressing happens when not even touching them! Going to try and swap these over.. Running 4.2.2 on black LTE version in Australia.

I purchased my wife a Moto G (4th Gen.) Unlocked - White - 32GB from Amazon. She loves it but has reported to me that it goes haywire once in a while. I was finally with her when it happened and it looked like fast, phantom touches. Should I exchange it or is there a fix for this?

Does she have the phantom touch issue only when she's connected to the charger? or does it happen regardless to whether the phone is charging or not?

cupofcloud said: yeah I just ask because my moto g3 had the ghost touch issue but I (and a few others I've seen report online) would only experience it while it was plugged into the charger. Disappointing, but I just dealt with it because I really love the phone and it didn't do it that often enough to drive me crazy. I think I may have noticed the ghost touch on my g4 plus too but again I figured it was because my phone was plugged in and it seems to happen less than the g3. I hope she gets a good one for a replacement. It's a shame because the ghost touch is not an uncommon issue, but there's also plenty of g4s that don't experience this. Guess it has to be luck of the draw with moto g's anymore Click to expand...

I've just reset my cache, took a case off and a screen cover off - trying to see if that helps. Really truly annoying.
- Dec 13, 2016
I had to hard reset the device back to factory. There must have been an issue with an app or setting, because it started up again when I tried to restore everything. Now, with a reset and fewer apps installed, much better. Maybe a light issue of phantom/ghost touches - but nothing obvious.
- Feb 13, 2017
I've had my Moto G4 from Amazon for almost 6 months. About 3 months ago I began experiencing random ghost touches, always after touching the power button to turn screen back on. These gradually increased in frequency and severity. Lately they would occur on 2/3 to 3/4 of my attempts to use the phone. The only thing I could seem to do was to repeatedly power the screen on and off until it stopped. It's been driving me nuts! Of course I'd tried rebooting the phone, then tried clearing the cache partition, to no avail. Today I saw in another forum what seemed to be a ridiculously simple solution: turning down the display brightness . I normally had been running it at 100%. I turned down the display brightness to 40-60% and the ghost touches became much less frequent. I then turned the display brightness to 30%, and the random ghost touches have completely stopped! So glad to be able to use this great phone again! Obviously there must be some hardware issue here that Motorola should solve at a production-quality level, but this is a simple workaround that is enabling me to use my phone without having the hassle of returning it to Amazon for a new one.

I am surprised by the number of reports of phantom/ghost touches on the G4 series. I have not experienced it (so far) on my G4 Play. But this post has me wondering. I rarely have my brightness above 30%. Maybe THAT'S why I don't see the problem?
I've had mine since launch and like the above poster, I never have my brightness above 30%. So far I haven't experienced a single incident of 'ghost touch'.

Bought my unlocked G4 from BestBuy (Jan 4 2017). Three weeks later The Ghost appeared. Tried every "fix" from the internet. Most stable was no apps but still jumpy. Was after Bestbuys 14 day return for new unlocked no contract phone. Contacted Motorola and they did a replacement took less than a week. Moto paid postage both ways. Two weeks later with all apps loaded and still stable knock on wood.

Thanks - followed Moose26's link. Mentioned phantom touches in the explanation. They gave me a fedex label to send it back. 1 week later, replacement Moto G4. Of course I already used this issue as an excuse to upgrade to a G5, but now my kid gets a new hand-me-down G4.
- May 16, 2017
The ghost touch problem cannot be solved by cleaning your cache or doing a factory reset. The best solution is to not use the Turbo Charger and to set your display to Adaptive Brightness. This will keep you phone cooler. You may occasionally still suffer from ghost touches, but it will be a rare occurrence.
Saw it too. But if it's a hot day or you are in your car where it is warm, the phantom touch will act up again. You can to replace it.
- May 27, 2017
You can have your brightness on low, but if it's a warm day or you are in your car and its hot, the phone will start acting up again. Despite the brightness setting. The only real solution is to exchange it. I'm wondering if other Motorola models have the same problem.

Technical How-tos, Tips, and Tricks
How to fix the touch screen of your motorola one vision.
December 26, 2019 Matt Mills How to 0
We have seen on many occasions how even the most expensive flagship on the market can suffer some operating problems that make the user experience somewhat frustrating. Sometimes the solution is at your fingertips with a simple adjustment or update, while in the worst case we will have to visit the Technical Service on duty.
How to fix the problem
There are several users who have perceived a performance problem on the touch screen of their Motorola One Vision. The reports coincide in a little fluid experience with the touch screen, centered when the keyboard appears, although some One Vision owners indicate that it also occurs during the execution of some games.
It also indicates that the problem appears when the device is connected to the power, at which point the fault appears again and the touch experience becomes very difficult.
Update the mobile
Both Motorola and some users have proposed several solutions to this problem, which in a large majority of cases are working. The first and most logical before continuing is to verify if we have any pending system updates . If so, we must update the device and see if the problem disappears, as has been the case with many users.
If there is a pending patch, it should appear as a notification in the notification bar, but if it is not, we will have to go to Settings / System / Updates and manually check if we have any pending.
The next step is to make use of the diagnostic tool of our Moto One Vision. To do this we go to Menu / Motorcycle Help / Device Diagnostics / Hardware Test / Touch /. Then we will have to follow the instructions to verify if the touch has an error. If so, the system will offer us the steps to follow to solve it.
Enter Safe Mode
If after the test no fault was detected, Motorola recommends using the Safe Mode for 40 minutes. To do this, press the shutdown key and release once the “Shutdown and Restart” options appear ; Then we press and hold the screen on the option “Turn off” until the device turns off and release once it starts restarting.
As you know, this mode starts the device without running any third-party application. Once inside the “Safe Mode” we must check if the problem continues, if not, it means that some app is interfering with the proper functioning of the terminal.
Install another keyboard
Some users indicate that the solution has been to install another keyboard, since the Google Gboard keyboard that integrates the One Vision by default, could have some compatibility problem in some devices. In Google Play there are dozens of keyboards with which we can do the test to see if that is our problem.
Download keyboards for Android on Google Play
The screen saver?
Finally, some users report that the problem can be solved by removing the tempered protective glass . This is usually a common failure and in which few fall, and even more so when a third-party and low quality product has been installed.
If the problem persists despite everything, we only have to make use of the official manufacturer’s warranty and pay a visit to the Technical Service so that the problem can be detected.
Motorola Razr (2023) review: An affordable foldable for the masses
Motorola does it again.
Android Central Verdict
The Motorola Razr (2023) may be one of the most surprising phones this year, not because it brings anything particularly new to the table, but because it takes the foldable form factor and makes it much more accessible for consumers who don't want to spend an arm and a leg on a phone. The downside is that you don't get to reap the benefits that can come with the form factor, like a more functional cover screen.
Gorgeous 144Hz OLED display
Good performance from Snapdragon chip
Vegan leather finish feels great
Great battery life
Inconsistent image quality
Shaky video capture
Only 128GB of USF 2.2 storage
Small cover screen does very little
Slow wireless charging

- Should you buy it?
Motorola is known for its affordable Android phones, often undercutting the competition with models offering tons of value for the price. That's why it's no surprise that the company did the same with the new Razr (2023), a phone that's finally making its way to North America for just $699. That makes it the cheapest new foldable you can buy if you live in the United States, a fact that should definitely pique your curiosity.
There are some obvious downgrades when compared to the more expensive Motorola Razr Plus , but when you're talking about a foldable phone that costs less than most traditional flagship phones, that's to be expected. Still, even with more "midrange" specs, the Razr (2023) — which I lovingly refer to as the "Razr Minus" — has a lot going for it and may just be the gateway drug to a new world of foldables for many.
Motorola Razr (2023): Price & availability
Motorola announced the Razr (2023) in June of 2023 before later launching the phone in North America in October of the same year. The phone retails for $699, with an initial offer cutting the price down to just $599. There is only one configuration, with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM.
The device is available in several different color options, including Sage Green, Vanilla Cream, Summer Lilac, and Cherry Blossom.
Motorola Razr (2023): What I like
When it comes to the design, Motorola takes a bit of a different approach with the Razr when you compare it to its Plus counterpart. The overall design is the same, but the Razr trades the glass cover panels for a vegan leather finish (something only found on the Viva Magenta Razr Plus), while the frame takes on a more brushed metal finish compared to the rather glossy frame on the Plus. The result is a phone that feels and looks quite classy, and in some ways, I prefer it to the flashier Razr Plus.
When opening the phone, you're met with a large 6.9-inch 144Hz OLED panel, making it one of the highest refresh rates on a foldable phone . And the crease is just as minimal as on the Plus display, perhaps even more so. It's fairly punchy and bright at 1400 nits, although I often struggle with foldable displays outdoors due to the smudginess of the built-in screen protectors, and this phone is no different.
And the hinge, while technically the same one used on the Plus, somehow feels much sturdier, almost to the level of the Galaxy Z Flip 5. It's able to keep the top half of the display propped up at various angles but without the level of wobbling that I experience on the Plus.
The overall performance of the Motorola Razr is honestly quite good. The Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 powering the phone may not be the top-of-the-line chipset from Qualcomm, but it definitely gets the job done. Paired with 8GB of RAM, the phone is able to handle much of my daily tasks without faltering. It also handles gaming well, capable of playing Honkai: Star Rail on high settings with little problem. And if you're really daring, you can even play on the highest settings to give the phone a challenge, although expect the Razr to get warm as it tries to keep up, at least on the top half of the device.
The smooth performance is likely aided by Motorola's light take on "stock" Android. MyUX is a largely similar experience to what you'll find on a Pixel phone but with the usual Motorola flourishes, such as its own take on customization, useful gestures like twisting twice to turn on the camera or chopping twice to trigger the flashlight, and wireless Ready For, which is ready to turn your phone into a desktop or a webcam for your computer.
There's also a new "Moto Unplugged" feature that launched alongside the phone, and it's positioned as a neat way to disconnect when you need a break from your phone and the world. In reality, it's really just Motorola's version of Focus Mode, which is already available on the phone via Google's Digital Wellbeing.
Motorola also promises three OS upgrades and four years of software updates, and while it's still less than what Samsung or Google offer their latest phones, it's still praise-worthy for a company that always seems hesitant to support its phones for very long.
Battery life is also a highlight of the Razr. Motorola stuffed a 4200mAh battery into this phone, which is just 100mAh shy of the OPPO Find N3 Flip . I find that while it can't quite hit the full day that I get from the OPPO phone, the Razr still gets me through most of the day, and I have much less anxiety when going out than I do with the Razr Plus. It also helps that the phone has 30W wired charging, although the 5W wireless charging leaves a lot to be desired.
Motorola Razr (2023): Cover screen
The cover screen experience is vastly different from what you'll find on the Razr Plus. Instead of a large display taking up much of the cover panel, you'll find a black bar housing the rather small 1.5-inch display and dual cameras (which I'll get to later).
This display isn't the most functional, and it's mostly meant for glancing at information and notifications. Customization is limited to a handful of panels for weather, calendar, contacts, media, a timer, and the audio recorder. You can swipe between these in a carousel on the cover screen while swiping down from the top will present Quick Settings with select toggles. Swiping up will show any available notifications, which you can preview directly on the cover screen, and some will let you do things like delete an email, but for most interactions, you'll be prompted to open the phone.
There's a certain simplicity to it that sort of reminds me of a smartwatch — something that's not meant to be used all the time or even replace your phone, just to check notifications and maybe glance at information from time to time. That said, even my Galaxy Watch 5 lets me respond directly from the display. Still, I can't imagine Motorola stuffing a full keyboard on this tiny 2:1 screen.
This cover screen is meant to give the bare minimum while still serving its purpose of letting you decide whether or not it's worth it to open your phone. Media controls are basic, but they work well enough, and surprisingly, you can still take selfies and shoot videos using the cover screen to preview the shot, although your view and controls will be limited.
Motorola also includes various clock styles to give the cover screen some personality, which is a nice touch considering its limited functionality. But overall, this is probably not the main selling point of the Razr, and it's a shame Motorola couldn't put a larger display on the outside, like the 1.9-inch panel on the Galaxy Z Flip 4 . Maybe next year.
Motorola Razr (2023): What could use some work
The Motorola Razr (2023) may have a higher resolution camera than the Plus model, but that doesn't necessarily mean that images are better. Don't get me wrong, I don't think the Razr takes bad photos, but like the Plus, the images often leave me wanting more, whether it's more punch, more contrast, more accurate white balance, or something else. The phone also seems to have trouble with balancing colors at times.
Overall, the phone takes fine photos, and every so often, it'll take a great photo, but it's very inconsistent and likely won't win any blind photo contests against higher-end Android phones. However, pit it against cheap Android phones , and it might pull something off. Night shots are fairly decent, and it manages to capture more detail than the Razr Plus in 2x zoom.
Video isn't great either, and the phone often suffers from the same problem as the Razr Plus, where it will noticeably drop frames when you start to record a video and sometimes in the middle of recording.
A downside of having such a small cover screen is that selfies with the primary cameras are a little hard to take and orient. And with the cover screen, you're limited to standard photo mode, video, and portrait. Swiping up toggles between wide and ultrawide, but you get no access to additional photo options.
Of course, when you're taking a bunch of photos, you'd probably want a lot of storage to, you know, store them. Unfortunately, the Razr (2023) only comes with a 128GB variant in the U.S., with no option to expand or pay for a 256GB model. I'm not quite sure why Motorola would limit this, but in this day and age, 128GB isn't that much; I don't care how affordable this phone is.
Lastly, while I like the design and the fact that I don't have to worry about breaking glass (aside from the small cover screen), the vegan leather often holds on to scratches, and they can sometimes be difficult to get rid of.
Motorola Razr (2023): Competition
In the United States, the Motorola Razr (2023) has one main competitor: The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 , which is positioned as a more flagship smartphone than the Razr. Thus, you'll find a more powerful chipset, better cameras, and a much bigger cover display. However, the downside to all that power is that the Flip's battery life can suffer, struggling to get through a full day. The Razr is likely to last a big longer while also costing you hundreds of dollars less.
Another flip phone we enjoy is the OPPO Find N3 Flip. While not exactly U.S.-bound, the Flip enjoys an all-day battery life, an impressive triple-camera system, and a rather stylish design. It also has a large cover display, but the vertical orientation makes the implementation a little awkward and more limited than what one would expect from such a large screen. And don't expect the phone to hit retail stores in North America.
Elsewhere, there's the TECNO Phantom V Flip , which is also positioned as a midrange flip phone. It, too, has an all-day battery, impressive build quality, and a leather back, while TECNO offers it at a cheaper price than the Razr. That said, the camera system is limited, there's no IP rating, and the software isn't really up to par.
Motorola Razr (2023): Should you buy it?
You should buy this if...
- You're interested in foldable phones
- You don't want to spend a lot of money
- You want a phone that performs well and lasts all day
You shouldn't buy this if...
- You want a useful cover screen
- You want consistently good camera quality
- You take a lot of videos
Motorola has done something truly special here. The Razr (2023) is the perfect example of the company's ability to bring high-value products to market while undercutting the competition to get it done. The $699 Razr (2023) is the kind of phone I would hope to see from the likes of Samsung and even Google as a way to make foldable phones more accessible.
Keep in mind I don't think this phone is for everyone. There are obvious compromises here, such as the rather limited cover screen, inconsistent camera system, and weak water resistance rating. If you're looking for a truly flagship experience, this isn't it. But at a price that falls well below many of the top Android phones you can get today, this could be more of a perfect first foldable phone than the more expensive Razr Plus, and that, my friends, is the real plus.
The Motorola Razr (2023) is your cheapest way to get a foldable phone, while still offering a powerful Snapdragon chipset, an impressive 144Hz display, and all-day battery life. If you're curious about foldables but don't want to spend too much to get one, this is the phone to consider.

How to take screenshots on Motorola devices
Motorola has plenty of phones under its banner, from its latest Moto G Stylus to the foldable Moto Razr and the flagship Motorola Edge . But if you’re only just hopping aboard the brand’s device train, you’ll probably want to know how to accomplish basic tasks. Snagging screen content is one of them. Below, we’ll detail how you can capture screenshots on Motorola devices.
Also read: How to take screenshots on Android
The simplest way to take a screenshot on Motorola phones is to hold the power and volume buttons down simultaneously. Read more below for details.
JUMP TO YOUR PREFERRED METHOD
- Use your phone's buttons
Use the recent apps shortcut
Use a gesture, capture long screenshots, use a voice assistant, use your phone’s buttons.
Like Android devices from Samsung , OnePlus , and other manufacturers, you can use the buttons on your Motorola phone to quickly initiate a screenshot. This is the most well-known screenshot method. To do this:
- Briefly hold down the power and volume down keys simultaneously.
- Once the screen flashes, let go of both buttons.
You can also use the phone’s power button to bring up a shortcut.
- Press and hold your phone’s power button. A shortcut dialog will appear.
- Tap the Screenshot icon to capture content on your display.
Motorola places a Screenshot shortcut on some devices when you open the recent items menu. To access it:
- If you’re using gesture navigation, draw a line from the bottom to the middle of the screen with a finger. This will open the recent items menu. Using the three-button navigation method, tap the square recent items menu button.
- Scroll horizontally through the screens. When you find something you wish to screenshot, tap the screenshot button beneath it.
- If the dialog is greyed out, the app will not allow you to capture a screenshot.
If the button method is too laborious, you can also snag screen content using a simple gesture. You may need to enable it first, though. To do this:
- Open your phone’s Settings > Display > Advanced > Three-finger screenshot . Toggle it on.
- Once activated, find the content you wish to capture.
- Swipe down with three fingers from the top of the display to take a screenshot.
Do you want to include more content beyond that displayed on your screen? You can also take a long screenshot on Motorola phones. To do this:
- Take a screenshot using one of the methods above.
- Once the screenshot dialog appears, tap the double down arrow icon below the screenshot preview.
- The phone will now display a “processing” dialog while scrolling the screen to progressively capture it. You can touch Stop to halt the process at any time.
Finally, Google Assistant can also snap screenshots on your behalf if your hands are full. To initiate a screenshot using Google’s voice assistant:
- Find the content you wish to capture.
- Activate Google Assistant by saying Hey Google .
- Then say, Take a screenshot .
You’ll find your screenshots in your Gallery app. Head to Albums , find the Screenshots folder and scroll through the screenshots you’ve taken. In Google Photos for instance, the folder will be located in your Library .
You can tap the Edit icon in the screenshot dialog after capturing the screenshot, or access it later in the Screenshots folder.
You can quickly share screenshots directly after capturing them by tapping the Share option in the screenshot dialog. Alternatively, you can share the image from within your desired app as you would any other file or photo.
You can also use these screenshot apps to capture screenshots on Android.
You now know how to take screenshots on a Motorola device. If you have any questions or have an additional method, drop a comment below.

Le tactile de mon Motorola Moto C ne fonctionne plus
Déc 28, 2018 | Motorola Moto C
Comment réparer le tactile de votre Motorola Moto C si celui-ci ne marche plus?
Assurez vous que l’écran du motorola moto c est propre.

Screen: Soviet Operetta:Shostakovich Music in 'Song Over Moscow'
THE star of the new show at the Cameo Theater, "Song Over Moscow," is a man named Dimitri Shostakovich. The great composer has turned cool cat for one of the tangiest, most infectious operetta scores put on film in recent years.The Russian production, which opened here last Saturday, is a skittish, familiar and entirely good-natured little film about romance and general confusion in a Moscow apartment project. What makes it is the bubbly lilt and pull of the music. So who cares if it's a little derivative around the edges, with touches of Strauss, Gilbert and Sullivan and Menotti? The music seldom ceases—marches, ballads, waltzes, duets, quartets, often with the whole apartment house joining in. And spiked with special Shostakovich flavoring, without a clinker in the entire batch of numbers, it's an acoustical joy.To see? Well, former Premier Khrushchev reportedly scowled when the Lenfilm production aïrily emerged two years ago. Amid all the chaos about installing families in various apartments, there are some light jabs at bumbling bureaucracy. At one point, somebody ventures a few bars of "Who's Afraid of the Big, Bad Wolf?" The brisk implication is—guess who?As for plot, the story gathers together a heterogeneous group of Muscovites jumping for joy at the prospect of new apartments, then collectively hounding a sly superintendent who balks about handing over the keys. That's the real crisis. Add a portly tenant, a minor functionary, who selfishly tries to squeeze out a pretty museum lecturer and her father from the building. And that, except for the music, is the picture.But Mr. Shostakovich seldom lets go, likewise the genial, energetic cast, most of them in splendid voice. Within the obvious limitations of an operetta format—a bit old-fashioned, perhaps, in this nuclear age—the trifling incidents spin at a giddy pace. The picture hits an arid snag or two, to be sure. But a door-bell ring is about all it takes to cue in the band and the singers.The best voices are those of the four young principals—Olga Zatbotkina as the pretty heroine, Vladimir Vasilyev as her extroverted pursuer, Viktor Korotkin as his chauffeur pal and Svetlana Zhivankova as this gentleman's quarry and the most fetching crane worker in the Soviet Union. Marina Kalatusiva and Gregori Bortnikov as newly-weds almost equal the others' youthful, vocal appeal. And the older folks chime in with the same limber likability."Song Over Moscow" bounces, smiles and sounds delightful. Mr. Shostakovich has been grander but never groovier.
