    Hello!

    One or two months ago I noticed that when I switch between apps,when I scroll ,when I switch folders,etc,the screen brightness changes by a few points so to speak,it blinks.There are times when I do the same activities and the screen doesn't blink from the first try.
    I tried some things that I found online(with no result):
    -start the phone in safe mode
    -factory reset
    -turn off auto-brightness
    -turn off battery optimization for system UI and launcher
    -turn on disable HW overlays
    -turn on force GPU rendering
    I'm afraid it's a hardware problem...What more can I try?Thank you!

    It could be due yo the latest official update but couldn't be 100% certain. Do you know when you're Moto G6 updated received the last update?

    I was thinking about this. The last software update was many months ago, but the last security update was pretty recent

    I have to ask, any chance the phone was dropped or the internals were exposed to water? You know, to rule that out as a possibility.

    I would also go back to phone settings "Developer Options" and turn off "HD Overlays" and "GPU Rendering" . In fact, if you have a setting to turn off or toggel off "Developer Options" for the time beeing, I suggest you try that and re-boot. Then check to see if your issues have been resolved.

    A few things I might add/change developer options , although not related to the screen flicking, would be to change the animations (window, transmission and duration) to Zero or off.
    If you have dark/night mode you can choose that option as well.

    Enabling USB is good if you need to transfer data between cellphone and pc but likewise, it's a security risk when left enabled. That choose is entirely up to you.

    On my device, being a rooted user I choose to have mine enabled at all times. The fact that I also have the Xposed framwork, installer and module, allows me to secure my device to only one pc. Unfortunately, I don't believe this is an option for non-rooted devices. :(

    The following image is animations set to off. Screenshot_2020-07-10-18-00-25.png

    My experience is with Samsungs mainly. Another AF member far more experienced with Moto's is @MoodyBlues .
