    I'm having this where my phone keeps flickering every 3~4 seconds, it becomes unusable and holding the power button for hard reboot doesn't happen right away. This issue seem to happen to me about 10 times now! Is this a software bug or a hardware bug?

    Scared the living shit out of me. My phone is less than a week old and it started just a few minutes ago. Out of nowhere. I was watching Netflix. Had to lock the screen. Came to unlock and boom, static screen flickering. Holding down power button didn't help or maybe I did it wrong. Tried holding down power button and volume up button and the phone restarted. will see if this occurs again. Really hope it's a software issue.

    Could very well be a software issue, but if it's very common for you I would not hold my breath but see if I could get it replaced to see if you get rid of the problem. In my case it could possibly be solved by a quick swap at my local reseller in town.

    I'm a pretty heavy user and it has never happened for me.

    I'm going to wait a couple of more days and see how it goes. Probably do a clean wipe if it happens once more. Sent a bug report already. According to users complaints, it happens when the screen wakes up.

    Do you also have the issue such as if you pause the video it will play automatically? I observed that on YouTube, Netflix etc

    I had the same flicker issue while watching Netflix. I already replaced it but seems I was a bit to quick in my reaction. Now I'm really sure it's a software bug so keep calm relaxing and still having fun with your 9 pro again!

    What display settings do you use? And are you using any of the display enhancement options?
    Maybe I could replicate it too.

    I was switching between QHD and FHD while i was watching Netflix, i know Sounds a Bit Strange but i was Interested in the difference between the normal graphic smoothing you can put on in the normal display seetings and the extrem graphic smoothing where you can find in the Oneplus Lab Settings. The extreme graphic smoothing works only in FHD display Resolution, that was the reason why i was switching. And from one second to another the breakdown came and the flicker Starts.

    Sure sounds like a form of driver issue then

    Is this issue directly connected to Netflix? If so, OP should tell people to not watch Netflix.
