    Is it just me but does anyone else's F3's screen flicker when the battery is relatively low on 0% brightness? For some odd reason, my phone has been doing it and its pretty damn annoying to see it doing that. Its not major but you can definitely see the screen flickering

    Sounds like something most people wouldn't notice anyway, but it sounds normal to me. Does it only do this on low battery?

    Edit: I just tested this and it doesn't seem to be doing it on mine.

    Mine used to flicker a lot, battery level didn't seem to matter. I could never pin down the cause, as it was noticeable but nothing I couldn't live with.

    After the OTA update sent me into a boot loop and I had to flash the stock ROM I found on this forum, the flicker is completely gone. I haven't had to download any of the Virgin Mobile stuff, either. My network says Chameleon, I get the stock LG boot and shutdown animations, but everything works as it should. I still don't know what was causing the flicker, but I thought it was pretty weird that the stock ROM fixed it.

    Mine flickers randomly. It's probably a defect, but it doesn't really affect the usability of the device.

    My phone is doing this when the battery gets low. It will stop flickering if I set it to at least 25% brightness. Anyone figured out how to fix this (if it's possible)? It can't help whatever resale value this phone has.
