    I upgraded from an 8+ to the XS last week. I have had the phone for about 4 days. Today I was looking at some images I took over the weekend and noticed flickering in an area of the image (clouds). It wasn’t constant and regular.. it was irregular and kind of pulsed every once and a while. I have sinned noticed in in the setting menu.

    I have not had any headache issues.

    It looks like the screen is having trouble ‘holding’ a brightness or TT level.

    Anyone else?

    There are a couple of threads about similar issues already. This is what I've been experiencing on two separate iPhone XS models. I notice it most when I'm watching videos in a darker room. Though I can't precisely figure out the conditions to reproduce. I'm hoping 12.1 fixes it, otherwise it's back to the Genius Bar to hopefully exchange (again).

    I would return it and buy another one. It’s not uncommon for a small number of the millions of phones they make to have issues.

    I’ve never noticed any flickering.
