    Yes. I’ve noticed this issue scrolling through dark album covers in mid-low brightness.

    It’s most likely a PWM (pulse width modulation) issue. It’s basically a design limitation that comes with current smartphone OLED panels. Apple LCDs do not use PWM anymore and my guess is that it’s something Apple will fix in future generation OLED panels when feasible. For now, you’ll just have to live with it, use a higher brightness setting (might not be optimal) or return the phone.

    Ok, so it’s definitely a common problem. The thing no one is complaining about this makes me think that I’m a bit mad about this kind of things :(
