Re: moto g4 plus charging issue NOT FIXED

2019-05-16, 19:39 PM

I hate to say that GHOST TOUCH was not resolved. It began getting scary again the next day. NOTHING I tried worked. I AGREE, I am happy to get rid of my Moto G (I use it now as a backup crap phone). I bought an LG V30, and haven't had a ghost infect it yet (after 2 months).  Getting the LG V30 fixed the ghost problem...ha!

Re: moto g4 ("ghost touch")...tight back? Solution?

This one (turning on adaptive brightness) worked for me 3 days now.

I found that the screen being very bright (with or without adaptive brightness on) triggers ghosting. With adaptive brightness on I noticed ghosting happened almost every time in broad daylight but hardly ever indoors. To test the hypothesis I covered the sensor with my hand while outside and ghosting always went away immediately (after switching screen off and on of course). So, switching adaptive brightness off or on will apparently work if you set brightness low -- say at 25%.

Sadly, that worked rarely for me, BUT there are times when the brightness is at ZERO (which is not a problem indoors), the phone still goes crazy, even with 'adaptive' off.

 

The only solution is to turn the screen off and wipe the screen with a handkerchief or my hand, and turn the screen back on. BUT, sometimes I have to do that 2 or 3 times before the phone behaves. And, at ZERO level, it is still nearly impossible to use the phone in bright daylight. 

 

I finally gave my phone to another person who is using it as a spare backup (with Red Pocket's $60/yr, 100 min/txts, 500mb).

 

Just note that the 'ghost' problem can be more severe on some phones, like mine was.

As you informed on your forun, that GHOSt TOUCH problem in MOTO G4 PLUS can be fixed without changing hardware, but as informed by your service centers at 324005, Kota Rajasthan, india, that this require to change the hardware, it cannot be fixed without changing the hardware.

It would be more helpful if the response gave details of how to fix this apparently non-hardware issue (phone overheating and phone opening apps, making calls, etc on its own) through a link to software patch, and/or gave a link to how to find repair agents.
