Issue Description

Whenever I pick my phone to use it, as soon as the screen comes on, it jumps around like crazy…sometimes zooming in & out, jittering, or just sits there when I try to use an app. If I pick it up & hit the Facebook app quickly, it responds normally. Sometimes, I can get it to respond normally by swiping the screen up or down. Kind of a pain having to turn it on & off a few times to get it to function. Not sure if it is a phone problem or something else.

Hi @kerryh.m8leam and welcome to the Community!

I’m sorry to say it is indeed likely a phone problem that afflicts some Moto G4s known as ghost touch: Moto G4 Ghost Touch – Republic Help.

I’m further sorry to say that generally, it’s incurable. You might find some relief here: Reduce occurrence of Moto G4 Ghost/Phantom Touch using MacroDroid.


Tried the black tape over the sensors… seems to work great now ! Thanks sooo much!!!
