So I had the same problem of the flickering on my phone as well and what I did to fix it is that I dimmed my phone down completely and restarted it about 4 times. Eventually I just left my phone alone for roughly 30 minutes. Bam, phone back to normal.
Im hoping this works for everyone else and didnt happen to be coincidence because I dont feel like returning the current phone and wait for a replacement or spend more on a better phone.
(I had my phone for 3 weeks)
I just got this phone,and I'mhaving problems with Internet connecting. Mynote2 started to give me problems,so my husband bought me this. Why can't i go online? Not happy
I got this phone not even a week ago. I love how big the screen is and the stylus. But I've been having problems. I don't get notified with my text messages sometimes. Facebook messenger doesn't pop but over apps like it's suppose to even when i go to settings. It keeps switching back to no. The flickering happens like a if i touched the screen. Stops when i lock it. It is really Annoying. Going to take it back to radio shack. Get a new one our exchange it

If youre trying to stream 720p and it buffers it might be your internet. Before I got broadband I couldn't even load HD videos on YouTube with dsl. So it might just be that your internet speed is not fast enough to buffer the video in a few seconds in HD. Rest assured, it's not the phone.

Anonymous, 10 Jan 2016I am currently having the same issue with the grey, flickering outline. Is yours still doing it?Mine was acting up big time yesterday! All morning it was flickering. And I never noticed until yesterday when I was on Amazon browsing for about 30 minutes I noticed there was some minor image retention burn in when I pulled the notification menu down. I did a battery pull and another factory reset. I decided to call customer service and ask for an exchange. This phone has been a nightmare I just want to pay it off and go to my old phone again lol.
So i have a Metro Lg Stylo with that i still have the 50$ promotional plan now i never really had trouble with watching videos until a few months ago when i went from "Android" to "Windows" phone where the video would start to buffer "and the lack of apps on the windows phone but they fixed that" now i have a LG Stylo but when ever i try to watch anything on 720p it will play for like 5 seconds then buffer for a long time i never really bother to try and call them ip about it even after all these months (social anxiety plus i dont want to sound like an idiot over the phone) i dont think its the phone it self because well like i said before this isnt just happening on my LG Stylo but it also happend on my Windows phone but before that when i had mybother LG phone i never experienced any buffering on youtube and yes i had the 50$ promotional plan at the time as well should i give them a call about this or is this a waste of time?

Hi, Could someone tell me how to add additional pages to this phone? I have tried all i know. I have only two screens available so the number of apps or widgets i can have is very limited.

AnonD-473180, 05 Dec 2015where did you get your 64 gb card from? He said got 64gb from sear but you can get from any phone place even walmart
I've had this phone for a week with Sprint, and it was great the first 3-4 days. When I woke up (Yep, it started to mess up at the beginning of the day) it was telling me I didn't have enough storage to update my apps. So naturally, I decided to put them on m SD card. While doing that, it kept telling me "This app does not exist". Eventually I gave up.
Now, it's at the week mark, and I was using it when I woke up - no issues. maybe a hour later, I turn it back on, and now there is a grey outline around the screen and the screen is flickering like crazy. I booted it into recovery mode, and it was still flickering which leads me to think it's software related.
I *did* enjoy this phone, but I don't recommend it for the easily frustrated. I guess I'll jut wait for Marshmallow to see if it's fixes it. Also thanks to those who had the same issues, I know it's frustrating but it was comforting seeing people having the same issues as me (just to show I'm *not* going crazy.)
#1 disabled factory weather app and clear cache all three
#2 pulled battery
#3 pull out sd card and sim card
#4 put back sim,sd card,battery
This is a temporary fix!Done this now 6x in 2months.This phone is a lemon.
Anonymous, 27 Dec 2015I think it is a software bug because I've had my stylo for almost a month and this is the 3rd ... moreI think you're right on this one, this is my 3rd straight replacement as well. I bought this phone originally last month as an upgrade, took it back the same day because I noticed dead pixels and the screen flicker. Then my second one was okay and then after a while the same screen flicker. The 3rd one is the exact same! All of them had the screen flicker issue. I'm just waiting till marshmallow drops I believe it is a software bug as well. Love the phone, but I hope this gets worked out! The screen flicker goes away after a few minutes but its definitely annoying when it pops up. It happens to me whenever I go to my "recent apps" list I notice when its present towards the bottom but it clears up.
