    I figured this may get lost in the other thread but I've made a new image to test your screen with. Turn brightness all the way up and open the attached photo. No need to save/set as wallpaper etc anymore.

    I encourage anyone that doesn't see this problem in normal use to not let it bother you if your screen flickers while viewing this image. This is only to confirm your suspicions about the scan lines if you can already see them and they're causing distress.

    Every iPhone Ive had flickers with this image, but I never see flickers or lines without this image. I guess my eyes are bad or something, im glad I do not see it though.

    Can only see the odd minor flicker when changing my focus point on the image .

    I think it's more of an optical illusion as if I close one eye it doesn't do it

    I see a lot of topics here about these vertical scan lines/interlacing.

    but all people just comment like "yeah, I do have ones" or "no, don't see anything"
    maybe a little bit more success stories about replacing their phones?

    I have 5s sn starts with F2, image flickers and I also see these stupid lines, when I use the phone. they do not appear all the time, but I still see them quite often - in videos, in camera, on my home screen icons, practically everywhere. It bothers me the most in the apps, that have a ios6 keyboard, the grey one. oh it is so stripy.

    My problem is, that I have no Apple Store in my country, only resellers. and these resellers are not so happy to replace apple goods. They see no problem in dead pixels and I can't imagine, how I am going to explain the flickering screen. They just won't see it, I guess... :mad:
    And my second worry is, that I will get a new phone with much more horrible lines and in this case they will not replace it for the second time :mad:

    Mine flickers on this image........my solution is to not look at this image :)

    Being serious though, I don't notice a flicker on other stuff only images of this kind and shade.

    It's C3, does that blow the theory? :)

    Haha :)

    The thing I've learnt about all these apple faults (I have a dodgy iPad Air screen) is that they are completely random and it's a lottery!

    Does this issue affect normal usage? Can you really notice it without doing the test?

    No flicker on my previous C3 iPhone 5 or my girlfriend's C3 iPhone 5 but it flickers on my replacement C7 iPhone 5.

    This image is the only time I've ever seen flicker or lines, though. Nothing noticeable during normal viewing.

    Flicker of my F2 iPhone 5S (64GB) Space Grey.

    How come some screens have this issue, and others don't? Is the refresh rate different on different iPhone 5S?

    Intense flicker on my 5.

    Never noticed anything odd until I did this test though. I blame you.

    If the photo that your looking at has high enough resolution your less likely to see any screen interlacing
