    Hi, I recently noticed that the screen on my Key2 kind of flickers. What I mean is, whenever the display tries to display a transparency effect in android, the screen dims down for a few miliseconds, then dims back up. Once you see it, you cannot unsee it.

    Examples:
    - Pulling down notification bar on home screen
    -Accessing the recent apps tab
    - Even upon opening the sidebar in the Crackberry app, the issue appears.

    It is really getting on my nerves. Is this a hardware problem or one of the many, many software bugs I experienced form day one with the Key2?

    It seems to get better when autobrightness is under 43 percent, or night mode being enabled while using the phone in a darker enviroment.

    Key2 (100-1) with ABI067, unlocked

    If it improves or gets worse with autobrightness, it might be an issue with your ambiant light sensor. So hardware. You can try a factory reset and see if that helps but I suspect it might not.

    Did try a hard reset just now. It was alright for half an hour, after all BB-Apps were updated, the problem returned. I think this is, again, a software bug.

    Disable auto brightness and see if it helps

    same here. for the last days the issue is getting more frustrating. people on forum claim it is software related

    anyone knows if the recent update solved the problem? In central Europe we still have ab1067

    In advanced interactions, disable, "Hold to stay awake," and see if that helps. that is what caused a flicker on other devices.

    The problem actually exists almost since release. It changed though, and got better or sometimes worse, depending on the software release. Some older topics which date back to end of June:

    There have been a few thoughts which could cause the problem or at least effect it in a negative way. Privacy Shade and auto-brightness are two prime examples.

    The last time I checked my Key2, the problem at least seemed to be much better compared to a few months ago. However I didn't spend enough time with it to really check it out. The flickering seems to be one of the many unpolished software issues BBRY Mobile is facing with Android Oreo.

    No, it is not a smart lock function, at least on Marshmallow. It is in advance interactions. It is called, "Hold to stay awake." I do not know what it is called in the version of Android you have on the Key 2.
