    Hi All
    Total Android noob question. I have received my new Galaxy S2 (P) and updated to ICS via Keis. All went well and I'm starting to get to know the phone. (Been a Winmo user up 'til now) Anyway I have noticed that sometimes a red frame around the screen briefly flashes when moving between apps or doing other stuff. The phone seems to be functioning correctly and is certainly fast. I'm sure this "flashing" wasn't there initially so is there something I should be aware of or is this "normal" Any advice gratefully received

    Adam :thinking:

    hi,
    i am not sure whether this would work. just give it a try.

    go to settings/developer options/strict mode enabled and uncheck it(if its already ticked).
    let know how it works out.
    cheers.

    Just faced this myself on another device.
    If this trick didn't work for you - after disabling the option simply reboot your device - it will be in effect after that.

    thank you 1981. this worked for me. i was really worried with the ugly border flashing and i even uninstalled all new games and applications i downloaded checking everytime if that caused the problem.

    thanks a ton.

    I did the trick as 1981 said, but not just after that, you need to restart your device for the trick to take effect

    I am experiencing this problem as well with my Galaxy Express. I did try what was suggested, unchecking "strict mode". Mine was not checked in the first place. Any other solutions?
