Touch screen sometimes facing Ghost touch & Unresponsive right side

Hello..

I have bought an Iphone 6 Plus (USED), but the thing is, after 3 days, I found that the Touch screen sometime act weirdly, 30% of the right side of the screen doesn't work, Ghost touches and the touchscreen become unresponsive in some places in the right side of the screen,also a multi-touch may occur however the left side is working perfectly,

Also when i tried to shake my Iphone I heard something like the battery is out of it' house or something, I guess the previous owner had a low quality repairing service that cause this, I mean could this happen as a result of a bad connections between the LCD and Board ? should I try to reconnect the Display?

Could it be a Touch IC Fault ? or just display issue ?

Thanks very much.

The Touch IC issue, otherwise known as Touch Disease (you can read more about it here) is usually no touch at all and not one side versus another.

Because you bought the phone used, it is possible that it was previously repaired with a low quality aftermarket screen, that is simply defective. If you know the person you bought it from, ask them what the history of the device is.

If you can't, then you can open it up yourself to see if there are any aftermarket stickers or ink-stamps or bring it to a shop so they can take a quick look. Or you could pre-emptively buy a new screen and see if that solves your problem. If the issue is still not resolved, then a micro-solderer can investigate any touch Ic related issue, it's not a DIY kinda thing.
