    Hello,
    I have noticed that the video image noticeable flickers when I use the rear camera (main one) during Facetime. It's especially visible when moving the frame from darker to bright areas. Has anybody else noticed this effect? Is it software related or some hardware issue?
    The camera itself (video recording) seems to work normally..

    My brother has this issue on his new 4s. I even noticed it when he would facetime me on my 4. Never had that issue personally. He plans to take it in to the store at some point to see what they say.

    If it's only doing it during Facetime and normal video recording works smoothly, that indicates it's a software issue and not hardware. I would report it on Apple's tech support site:

    It happens to me during bright to darker areas too. I tried to go to Apple they didn't get to see this as a problem but they focused on the back camera instead that it was working fine. (eventhough my problem is the front)

    I also experienced the phone freeze, all white screen, all black screen, multi colored lines or static on a black screen or the app would crash.

    All from using the front lens, which I love to use.

    I got my phone Dec. 1, I still have 30 days to exchange/return it to AT&T but they said I should bring it to apple. But nothing was solved. I'm so disappointed right now.

    I've had several iPhone 4Ss, and they've all done it. It's a bit annoying, but I just deal with it.
