    So I use my phone a lot, throughout the whole day. I'm a heavy user. Today, I was playing Modern Combat 5 on my phone and I started to hear this loud beeping noise. It sounded like a fire alarm. I closed the app to see if that was the problem but the noise remained. I checked to see if it was something else but the noise was coming from my phone. I didn't have any other apps open or anything in notifications. The sound was loud and wouldn't stop so I shut it down and removed the case. What's going on with my phone? I just got it a few months ago and it didn't show any problems until last week when the screen kept flickering.

    It could be one of two things. It's either a low battery warning, or the NFC function. If you haven't heard it before while having low battery, it's the NFC. If you use it, toggle it back off, then on. If not, keep it off. NFC isn't available on all Stylos. The Sprint based models don't have it.

    As far as the screen flickering, you can fix that by taking apart the phone and disconnecting, then reconnecting the digitizer. This will void your warranty, but if you don't want to wait to get your phone back from a repair facility, and you're okay with taking apart your phone, this is the easiest solution to fixing screen flicker. The cable can come slightly loose after a hard drop, and cause the screen to flicker.

    Give me a few moments, need to find the thread where I mentioned this.

    I play mc5. Its an ad that does it. It made me think a smoke alarm was going off at the other end of my house but i turned the volume down and noticed it was the phone.

    Maybe the ad got stuck and kept going off even once the app was closed.

    If it didn't happen after you reboot the phone i wouldn't worry.

    Its just an annoying ad

    Screen flicker is from overheating. Those games are resource intensive and with the screen at a high brightness things get hot.
    It could be something else if it happens other times but your not the only person and this isn't the only phone that does it.

    Thanks everyone! I had no more problems with screen flickering or the beeping noise. I guess it really was just my phone heating up and the ad being stuck.

    I noticed that one of the ads with the beeping is a black ad on the bottom of the screen that says "google" on it. It often shows up when waiting to start a multiplayer match. After the "finding opponents" screen with the magnifying glass that goes in circles
