Reports going back as far as last year have documented a multitude of OnePlus One users having severe touchscreen issues on their mobile devices. While the company tried sending out a number of software fixes over the past few months, many users are still complaining (and for good reason) that the touchscreen issues are still present. OnePlus announced that they were working on a permanent fix for the problem over a month ago, and it looks like we’re finally getting some results.
The latest CyanogenMod 12.1 nightly that was published on May 15th seems to fix the problem, according to users commenting on various Reddit threads throughout the internet. Here’s just one example from Reddit user liberta0407:
Holy s***. I didn’t realise how bad my screen was until I installed this kernel. I could never type fast as the keyboard would press the wrong letters, wasn’t too noticeable but things just didn’t feel right..
Amazing now though! Let’s see if higher temperatures change anything…
While the problem seems to be gone completely, many users are still slightly skeptical that this nightly contains a fix for everything. The touchscreen issues supposedly intensified when the device’s temperature rose, so it looks like we’ll need to wait and see for further confirmation.
If you’re okay with flashing ROMs on your OnePlus One (which you probably are if you own the device), then head to the link below to grab the latest nightly!
