The changelog of the Realme 7 update version A.71 outlines that some knwon issues have been fixed and touch control experience and algorithm have been optimized.

This means that the update should have addressed the ghost touch/screen flickering problem but it seems that several users are still facing the said issue.

As per recent reports from the Realme Community, multiple users are facing the aforementioned issue on their Realme 7 even after installing the A.71 update.

While it is unclear what is causing this issue, the latest Realme 7 update has also not fully addressed the problem.

Also, the OEM has not provided much clarity on the matter apart from the latest AskMadhav session whereas the growing number of user reports demand a wider response.

Users have even taken to other online platforms like Twitter to report the persistent issue but a proper response is still awaited.

Why you people are not able to fix realme 7 screen flickering issue after so many update. Currently i am using latest A.71 version. But still i am facing flickering issue.

As i update my Realme 7 on A.71 update issues related to flickering & hang problems are much more then before. Network problem also arose.

However, a possible workaround has been found by a user which involves switching off the Super nighttime standby mode.

It seems that doing so is indeed working for several users as they have reported that the aforementioned workaround solved the ghost touch issue.

Hopefully, the OEM provides a permanent fix to this problem as Realme 7 users have been waiting for the same for quite some time now.


In the meantime, if you are using a Realme 7 with the A.71 update, feel free to drop a comment below to let us know whether the workaround given above fixed the said issue for you or not.

That said, we will keep tracking this for further development and will provide more details once new information becomes available.
