    Hi guys,
    I started noticing flickering of screen when I type something in messaging app or email app. It happens randomly and its a quick flicker, if you blink you'll miss it.
    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? :(

    Sounds like a terrible hardware issue - you are better off returning it to where you got it from for an exchange!

    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!

    thanks for the response, yeah everything else runs fine, I don't think I can return it now, but I hope the firmware update fixes it.
