I know I'm being picky, but I'm concerned because its an expensive phone. It is bearable but it gets annoying.
I thought it was related to samsung keyboard, so I installed third party keyboard, I tried swift key, go keyboard, but it still flickers.
Now I'm not sure if its a hardware issue or software issue, it only happens when I type, so it seems more like a software issue(I hope).
To reproduce the problem, I just kept typing long sentences in messaging app.
So now I'm wondering if this problem is common to all galaxy s3, if it is, then I'll be a bit relieved since I would assume its a software issue and probably software update would fix it.
So do you guys have any suggestions to fix this problem?
Don't return it...if all else is fine, just keep it and call it a day! I've seen that a few times already on mine, its so quick that yes, if you blink you will miss it. I don't see it as being a problem. Most likely just a teny tiny glitch within the keyboard or spell correction software. Not a biggie!
