The vast majority of our interactions with smartphone occur through the devices’ touchscreens. Sure, we’ll use voice commands now and then, and maybe even connect a Bluetooth controller, but without touchscreen input, we’d be utterly lost. So some OnePlus One owners have been understandably frustrated as they deal with touchscreen glitches that seem to have been plaguing the handset since it launched. Despite OnePlus delivering update after update that attempted to put these touchscreen bugs to rest, problems have persisted. At least, they have so far, but it looks like salvation may have finally arrived, as the latest CM12.1 nightlies implement a new touchscreen firmware.
Users whose touchscreens had remained glitchy even after every past update are reporting that this new release finally appears to fix everything. OnePlus calls early reports “very encouraging,” and while this is still an in-testing nightly release, so far all indications point to this being the solution users have been waiting for.
Assuming no further problems pop up, expect this touchscreen controller firmware update to be incorporated into the OnePlus One’s next formal CM release.
