    Just to clarify, it's more of a brightness flicker and not the whole screen turning black/white - It's quite mild and not a deal breaker, but I just want to ensure that this won't turn into a bigger issue down the road and damage the screen (or backlight).

    I feel like the brightness (during the wake up phase from unlock) skips around 5%-10%, if that doesn't make sense: Imagine swiping the brightness slider to the right from 0% to 100% and you notice how smooth it is right ? Mine has a small flicker (like a skip) between 70%-80%.

    Anyone else has this ? I'm running 8.0.2 so not sure if it is software. My previous 6+ didn't have this issue even on 8.0.2.

    I would update to the latest version of iOS and see if it persists. If it does, contact Apple and let them know the problem.

    Was such an issue ever posted here before ? Especially with the 6 or 6+ ?
