Hi, I've been using the Poco X4 Pro for a month now, it's been a smooth ride though the development for the device is very slow and almost non existent as of now since kernel sources have not been released

The only major flaw I've found with the X4 Pro is the screen flickering, this does not seem like a software issue as I've already tried Miui IN, Miui Eu, Miui global, (Unofficial) Pixel Experience Plus, (Unofficial) Evolution X

The screen flickering is most noticable in a dark environment (basically at night) and the most annoying part is that it occurs while watching multi media content

I don't think I am the only one who has this problem as some of the people in the telegram group for the device explain the same thing
so i don't think getting a replacement will help much as it may be the same for all devices just when u notice it

I don't think there's any "fix" for now atleast
I wanted to ask do you face the same issue on your Poco X4 Pro 5G or Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus 5G?

p.s documenting this is nearly impossible as it happens at random intervals and feels much more subtle on camera than visible with naked eyes

I haven't seen any screen flickering at all and I've watched a lot of content in a dark environment, usually at high brightness. Might be only some devices have it.

Yup, I have same issue with you. The AMOLED screen on the Poco X4 Pro 5G did not show true black and it shows grey blacklight when the brightness on between 15% - 65%

Stock rom has the same thing. Changing display might not help actually it seems almost all devices have their screens flickering (noticable in 120hz refresh rate)
So a new display might also have the same problem?
And I noticed sometimes my Poco X4 Pro 5G have a bit laggy when swiping or scrolling FB, messenger, etc... This issue happened since when its first launched.

I still don't understand why Poco did not want fix all bugs on their phone and What's the point of keep updating security patch?

The lags are definitely a software issue and can be fixed, for me i just got out of Miui and it's pretty smooth for daily use now

Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus 5g here. No issues on my device either. I notice the screen flickering slightly at night but it seems like a software issue on my end with vivid mode and auto brightness conflicting with one another.
