Pardon me if a thread already exists for this but I have tried to search but didn't find a thread describing this problem any where. Redirect me if you know of a thread like this.
So here is what I am experiencing. My One Max is a week old but from day one I have noticed that while i am typing a text message or email screen brightness increases a bit as soon as I hit any key on screen. Sometime it happens sometime it doesn't. I have also noticed that it only happens wherever key pops up on keyboard e.g E, R, G, O etc etc or it happens when I am scrolling messages or any thing which is in Black and White contrast (May it be messages or a web page with different dark and light pictures/rich text)

Mine is a brand new Stock Phone. No unlocked bootloader, or S-Off or Custom ROM or something of that sort. Brightness is at around 30%-40% in settings. Phone CID is HTC__J15 (Arab CID and International version).

I don't think its an hardware problem but wanted to share it with you guys and find a reason as well as a solution to it.

Cheers.

It sounds like your light sensor is adjusting itself very rapidly. I can't confirm if that's an hardware issue as your environment or fingers might have preventing light from falling on the sensor.

I would suggest you to ask a friend or a family member use your phone and see if that happens to them also, this way you could make out if your way of handling the phone is creating the issue or the hardware might be faulty.

Might be you were typing in a landscape mode.
When typing those letters, your left thumb blocks the light sensor.
If yes, then I would think It is normal.
It is just how do we use this beast.

Mine does this too. Vzw version. I have chosen to overlook it because there's too much I like about this phone.

I agree. This flickering doesn't matter to me too because this phone has so much more to offer that bit of a flickering wont bother me at all. I bought Note 3 for $710 and sold it right after 10 days for $600 because I didn't like touchwiz at all. But this One Max is an ultimate phone for me for next two years I believe

I've noticed it but only in low light situations. I just set my brightness at night or in dark places to eliminate the issue.
