Re: Sony Xperia XZ Premium - Blinking Screen

I thought I was the only 1! I'm onto my second xz premium and it's doing the flickering screen. It's hard to tell at what point it starts doing it though. I noticed it on WhatsApp when it was changing from light green to dark green etc. I tried numerous factory resets and even the Sony PC companion software repair. I thought it was my glass screen protector but have since removed it. Yes you can change the brightness and it stops, for a while but you need to restart the phone completely. I've had 2 big software updates since I've had this replacement device but it's still doing it.

Btw, this is the only downside to this handset

Re: Sony Xperia XZ Premium - Blinking Screen

I have the same issue on my XZ Premium. Changing the brightness helps in my case but the flickering or blinking comes back after awhile.

I have the same problem, I always restart my premium and it's fine, Sony must fix this immediately cause it may damage the screen.

Need to say that it happens fewer In latest update

Re: Sony Xperia XZ Premium - Blinking Screen

Same with me .  The screen flickers but then after like 10 seconds or so it goes away. I think it is a bug

Re: Sony Xperia XZ Premium - Blinking Screen

I experienced the same problem.  The monitor flickering once in a while.  It usually happens in under bright environment.  I thought it was caused by adaptive brightness,  so I dissabled it,  but there is no improvement.  Sometime I restart the phone and it goes away.

Re: Sony Xperia XZ Premium - Blinking Screen

Me too. My xzp screen sometimes blinks (brightness go lighter - darker - lighter....) although i disable adaptibe brightness , so it makes me very uncomfortable. I change brightness manual to solve this, but sometimes it effects, sometimes nothing change. I don't know why this happened
