i was wondering if anybody else had this issue, or ever better a solution. Today my phone restarted in my pocket on its own. no big deal. (i felt it vibrate and i checked for those of you thinking how i knew if it was in my pocket). since then the lock screen that has a few icons and a clock on it flicker and it kinda bothers me. it happens whenever the clock animation needs to update. AKA every time the second changes.

There have been reports of the screen flickering on evo lte's as well as one x's but I can't remember what causes it. On my first evo it really didn't do it but on the replacement I just got on friday its pretty bad. For the most part though, it only flickers when I am typing out a text message. I text quite a bit and it does it every single time I type a text message, so its very annoying to me. I may have to get this one swapped out for another one when I get a chance.

i hope that i dont have to do that. i have already had to replace my evo becuase it fried out on me. I love the phone but hey

 

BTW its not the whole screen that is flickering, just the clock/app icons on my lock screen. It has to be software right?

Ok, I just came from xda and someone there was having the same exact issue as me. It turns out that the latest version of SwiftKey maybe causing it. I switched to another keyboard and the flickering stopped completely. Your issue is totally different but yeah it could be either software or hardware, kinda hard to tell.

    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
    • If you need any assistance, firmware or drivers with the radio; I am involved in Quectel's US based sales and field application engineer programs. I am working on the x62 reference RM520/N right now. They are a really fun product to work with.  
    • Thanks for the locations, I will try them sometime in the next week or so.
