One of the most annoying things is mobile phone screen flickering. This happens to me. I found a solution to fix it.

Today I am going to show you EXACTLY how to fix phone flickering issues, fix blinking phone screen & android mobile phone screen flickering. Even I tried all the settings and this worked on my smartphone.

Now let’s talk about how to fix it.

This Will Fix the Phone Screen Flickering Issue

Personally, this issue happened to me when I bought a new smartphone 4 months back. In the first month of use, it started getting this issue which led me into danger from my parents because they recently bought a new device. 

1.Level it up or turn it off 

I know it sounds weird but this works for me if you are getting a smartphone flickering issue then you should try this.

To fix it what you have to do is to; don’t use your smartphone in extreme low brightness, try to go for mid-range or a bit more brightness than average. 

So whenever you are using a smartphone don’t use it in the extremely low brightness. Go for average. I know it will decrease your battery life but you have to do it.

OR you can turn off the auto-brightness feature sometime this is the culprit.

2.Remove and check if it works 

uninstall apps and games

Now This will work for most people because this is the Era of paid apps and paid games, where some people tend to get free apps or unlocked apps. Also Try this after this tuorial: Best Offline Games for Android

Free things are not the solution because sometimes free things cause any issue and behind the screen flickering issue is one of the major causes.

So to fix your smartphone screen you have to uninstall any recently installed app or game and then restart your phone and in most cases, this will fix the flickering screen. 

Moreover, without installing these apps you can even try to boot into the safe mode. Because when you get into the safe mode all the external apps will stop working and when you get into the safe mode check whether your screen is flickering or not. If not, that means an app or a game is causing that issue.

What is Safe Mode? Using Safe Mode on a phone or tablet allows you to force the device to run the essential operating system, and disable most 3rd party applications. It’s designed as a diagnostic tool to help solve issues with connectivity, battery life, and more.

Here is how to get into the safe mode on Android 

Every smartphone has a different key combination to get into the safe mode. So whatever phone you are using try to Google it something like activate safe mode on Your phone’s model.

So here is the basic thing that will help you get into safe mode on your smartphone and fix the screen flickering issue.

  • First of all, Power Off your Device.
  • Turn your phone back on with the power button, and hold the power button until you see an animated logo appear.
  • Hold the Volume Down button once you see the animated logo appear.

As Dwyane Johnson said in the movie Skyscraper: “Restarting can fix all the issues ‘.

restart your phone

As they said, restarting can fix most of the issues in modern technology, so you should try to restart your smartphone to fix the phone’s flickering issue. 

If you have already restarted then I would recommend you drain your phone’s battery and Recharge it from zero because in some cases restarting won’t work so you need to restart from zero. Start charging your phone from 0 to 100 and I hope this will help you.

4.Clear the cache
