This is a common problem with iPhone 6 Plus's—[http://ifixit.org/blog/8309/iphone-6-plus-gray-flicker-touch-death/|we recently wrote a story about it|new_window=true]. The issue is that the Touch IC is failing, and the only permanent solution is to replace it with a new chip.

b) become a microsoldering specialist or
 
c) buy a new phone.
 
None of these solutions are ideal, and we hope that the manufacturer will extend their warranty period or offer compensation for folks like you, but for now you're stuck between a rock and a hard place. Keep us posted on your repair story and best of luck!
