    Tried searching, couldnt find a post related to the 7 Pro.

    is anybody else noticing the screen flicker at random times? usually happens when im on low brightness in Night mode but starting to notice it in regular day time use with brightness at about 40%.

    I was plugged in and noticed wavy fuzzy horizontal lines flickering.

    what the heck? has OnePlus acknowledged this problem?

    Goto Settings.
    Goto the bottom press Utilities.
    Goto OnePlus Laboratory.
    DC Dimming and turn it on.

    Colours may be slightly incorrect on lower brightness when using it but it will stop the flicker.

    unfortunately not on my phone. I have the T-Mobile version, maybe that's why.

    Hey, so I have this problem too on my 7 pro and DC dimming shouldn't be a fix for this. It randomly flashes white for like a second and this only happens in low brightness and with DC dimming off.
    And this happens rarely. It isn't PWM flicker which is supposed to happen constantly at low brightness (I can't notice that at all)
    I am not susceptible to PWM at low brightness and don't notice any strain or headache, so why should I be forced to used DC dimming with inaccurate colours?!

    This is clearly different from PWM flicker and is bound to be a software bug. Please acknowledge this Bug Hunters!

    I'm having white spots or rectangular shapes show when I have the brightness half way to full, only visible on an all black wallpaper.

    If I cover the icons with my hand I can see it more obvious. Not sure if this is something wrong with screen or the latest update 10.3.0

    I will try to update and upload pictures
