This thread is to discuss the notorious screen problem with our Mi A2 February Pie release. As I was digging around XDA and 4PDA it has become clear that there are at least two types of LCD vendor:

1) TIANMA
2) JDI

I suppose you to note the vendor in your comment and confirm wherever the screen flickers or not.

Mine is from TIANMA and it suffers from flickering with the new update.

There definitely can be much more vendors, we all know Xiaomi's policies, they just put whatever parts they can buy in their phones.

So I've made a small poll for all of us so our dissatisfaction could be made clear to our dearest Xiaomi developers.

Cheers!

I think it's just a software issue.

You can fix the colour levels and flickering by simply flashing Hex kernel on stock February update. Mine's perfect now.

Hi, the thing is, some users in Russian forums report they don't face any issues. I think it's better to discuss at least something here and make some noise... =)
I guess that intense kernel tweaking made by Xiaomi doesn't affect some part of devices. That doesn't excuse them at all though =)

I made this latest update 2 days after I purchased the A2 and didn't noticed any problem at all

My guess is that is a bug with the color profile since I'm not able to turn on the sRGB option in settings.

I just noticed about the screen flickering and its really annoying. Why are these things even happening... Once I upgraded to Pie with each "update" there is something wrong with the phone, be it minor or more serious issues like contacts messing up all the time. I expected clean and seamless experience when i bought this phone, but that's not what I got.

The update seems pretty borked. I tried booting into safe mode and disabling HW overlays with no result.
