Some OnePlus 7 Pros are suffering 'phantom' touch input issues

Back when OnePlus debuted with its disruptive new OnePlus One phone in 2014, touchscreen issues were chief among complaints, and for some, the latest 7 Pro may be a bit of a throwback. As of now, there are a good number of reports together with example videos that demonstrate the OnePlus 7 Pro's touchscreen is randomly processing non-existent taps, an effect which has been alternately called "ghost" or "phantom" touches.

OnePlus 7 Pro factory images and update page are live

The OnePlus 7 Pro is the company's latest foray into flagship territory. As usual, the phone undercuts its competitors with high specs for a relatively low price (if we only compare the MSRP and keep the generally rising costs of smartphones in mind, that is), all while coming with the clean and fast software we've come to love the manufacturer for. Speaking of which: OnePlus has released the official download for the device's latest Oxygen OS on its website.

[Update: Clarification] The OnePlus 7 Pro's telephoto lens isn't actually 3x optical zoom

OnePlus was quick to market its latest 7 Pro as having substantial photography improvements — it even danced around a National Geographic photographer at its launch event to talk about the cameras — but it turns out that some of the numbers tossed around in spec sheets while discussing the phone weren't quite right. That 3x telephoto lens included in the trifecta of cameras isn't actually providing a "3x optical zoom." In fact, it's closer to 2.2x, and it makes up for the difference by cropping.

The OnePlus 7 Pro's pop-up camera can still do Face Unlock — and it's pretty fast

When the details about the pop-up camera for the OnePlus 7 Pro first started to leak out, our first concern was how that might affect the company's Face Unlock. The feature is among the fastest of its type when it comes to unlocking your device. Even if its security is doubtful, it's quite a convenience, and the extra lag imposed by the pop-up camera could have been a dealbreaker. We're happy to report that it's still very fast, though it is a bit awkward.

Get Zen Mode from the OnePlus 7 Pro for your existing OnePlus device [APK Download]

If you have one of OnePlus' older devices, you may be a little jealous of the new 7 Pro and its updated hardware and software. We can't do anything about the former, but for the latter, we've started discovering, one after one, that the APK files on the new device do indeed work on older models. Last week, we went through Camera and Gallery, then today we covered the new Screen Recorder, but we just tested Zen Mode's APK file and as it turns out, it too works on older devices.

The OnePlus 7 Pro's screen recorder works on older devices too [APK Download]

Every time a company launches a flagship with useful software additions, users start wondering whether these would make it to the previous gen that they already have in their hands. For the OnePlus 7 Pro, we recently learned that the screen recorder and Zen Mode would come to older models, but it turns out you don't need to wait to get the first one working. An APK of the 7 Pro's Screen Recorder was uploaded to APK Mirror and it works great on the 6T and older devices too, possibly.

OnePlus nearly doubles price of headphone adapter, OnePlus 7 Pro doesn't come with one

The OnePlus 7 Pro is (by most accounts) an excellent phone, but there are still shortcomings. Like most flagship smartphones these days, it doesn't have a headphone jack, but OnePlus has also decided not to include a Type-C adapter in the box. To make matters worse, the company has taken a page out of Apple's playbook and nearly doubled the price of the official adapter.
