Re: Screen flashes after 45.0.A.7.120 software update

I am not sure what do you mean by "flashes"... BUT, I did notice that after the update, my brightness sometimes starts to flicker. It happens rarely and it's not doo dramatic. But it is a bit weird and got me worried about the screen... Although when I pull down the setting and start adjusting the brightness, then the flickering stops... Hopefully it's a software issue....

 

I am not sure if this was before the update, but I just started noticing it after I have updated.

There was no such issue before update. Well, there was different issue witb the screen, from time to time there was a flash i felt corner while holding device horizontally, but it was happening only when watching the movies. This was resolved. 

 

What you are describing is new bug. So called quality software for so called premium device. This is the treatment we are receiving in terms of the software. Most probably just bad copy paste of google security patch. 

 

Sadly, do not expect any fixes soon.

I have the same issue since the last update like you alexGolen. Hopefully it will be fixed with a new update.

So far I could only notice that when waking up the screen in a sunny spot (screen brightness is very high then) and it's not happening every time.

It doesn't appear in the shade (screen brightness is lower).

Re: Screen flashes after 45.0.A.7.120 software update

Thank you for your help Sir!

 

You are probably right, it actually sounds exactly like this.

But I'm wondering if it is working correctly. It is a flickering between bright and dark for 10-20 seconds as soon as I activate the screen in the sun. I checked this on my z5 premium and this - assertive display effect - appears as well but there is no flickering. It is much more smoothly.

 

Actually, it isn't there all the time but only sometimes and this phone is great so I can live with that. But of course I would be happy to get fixed that.

I already did the software repair but nothing changed.

 

Anyway I appreciate your help.
