    No flicker here on my iPhone 4.

    I cannot duplicate this problem on mine, so definitely ALL phones do not have this issue.

    Lol guys, CoBrA2168 is 100% right and I tried to point this out in another thread about this last night. This will happen on any of the iphone4's because of the way they made that search page dim. The reason it only happens by going from page 2 to page 1 is because the search is on page 0 lets call it, before the first home screen. If you happen to scroll over from 2 to 1 a bit too fast, you'll see the starts of the dim from page 0 thus making it look like it's flickering but it's not really.

    Every one will do it, so don't worry about it, it's not a defect!

    well every one in the apple store did it and other shops, not only that i even showed a member of staf and he could not even see it i tried to point it out for 5 min but he could not see it so he must be blind but there is a slight flicker when going to the home screen its only the wallpaper that flickers and its very fast i would say 1 sec but you can just see it i noticed it stright away when i first picked the phone up.

    some wallpapers make it worse than others but as long as apple is reding this and can try and sort it in future firmware i will be happy, i just wanted to point this out to them

    Just picked up mine and tried it. Doesn't happen with mine. So far, I have a flawless phone! Hoping it stays that way!

    Well that's great to hear you are liking your phone but every one of them does it heh. Just glad you don't notice it. I didn't either till somebody mentioned it but again it's not flickering, it's simply that search page starting to dim the screen if you scroll over too fast or far, so simply don't do that, or even if so, it's hardly noticable, definitely not enough to complain about it.

    You sure you're not just blinking every time ? ?

    I got a replacement phone today due to yellow-brown strip on first phone screen. My replacement phone does not have the flicker problem you talk about, so **not all**phones have this problem. I noticed that the screen on my replacement phone seems to have a warmer tone to it than the first, but I don't think it is a problem, because the screen images look great, and sharp. Don't spend your time looking for problems and don't compare to your 3Gs, they are different models. Enjoy your phone or return it.

    it darkens a little bit but not much i think its because its preparing for the search bar if you go one more page.

    i wouldn't say its "very distracting" though. Just deal with it.
  • DarkOneX Level 1 (5 points)
    teach, yes they do ALL have this problem, but like I've said over and over, it's not even a Problem it's how it's made. That search screen darkens the background when you move to it, it's designed that way, so no problem.
  • DarkOneX Level 1 (5 points)
    And yes drknssdrgn gets it, that's exactly all it is, and it's not a problem at all, it's by design.

    My iPhone 4 does not experience a flicker.
  • DarkOneX Level 1 (5 points)
    Also was just playing with it more, it depends also on how you flick. If I move my page over slowly, doesn't happen. If I flick it very fast it will ONLY happen if I basically swipe almost all the way across the screen. If I just barely touch and flick real fast it doesn't happen. So it happens if you leave your finger on longer as you swipe.

    Mine doesn't flicker
  • drknssdrgn Level 1 (55 points)
    yeah when you flick fast it bounces across to the other side and shows a little bit of the search bar, so it darkens.. if you do it slowly then it doesn't bounce and no flicker
