So I flashed this latest update this morning and it started out really smooth. Earlier I was on global stable build and I had minor touch issue while typing such as I higher latency while typing the key "l" repeatedly. Pubg was not that good I had weird ghost touch and other issue such as getting stuck and aim going haywire etc.
After this update, pubg has gone worse. The most funny thing is that while playing pubg my joystick stars moving in random direction WITHOUT ME EVEN TOUCHING THE SCREEN. I mean, just hovering my thumb over the screen makes the joystick move for utterly no reason and I don't get it. How the hell can this screen respond simply by hovering my thumb over it without even touching the panel? As weird as it sounds, this only happens in pubg and the touch is fine everywhere else.
While trying to troubleshoot this issue, I figured out that this weird bug is caused by touching the screen at one spot for longer period of times (like when playing pubg) because rotating the screen and thereby flipping the controls temporarily fixes this issue. That's because rotating screen causes the controls to change the physical location on panel and this somehow fixes the issue for a while until it starts happening again and i have to rotate screen again.
This rotating screen in the middle of game is goddamn annoying and I don't know what on earth is going on under the panel of this phone!
Next I'm planning on flashing custom mod/kernel and see if it fixes this issue for me. My hopes are not that high at this point because everything indicates that it has to be a freaking hardware issue and no amount of software updates from xiaomi end can probably fix this. I hope I'm wrong for all our sakes.
