    Guys does your lumia 925 experience flickering (looks like lines of discontinuity) while scrolling in many apps, specially when there is a lot of images... I had this problem in many apps like when scrolling in the news feed of the wpcentral app... also it happen in facebook app, even the native photo viewer when zooming image and scroll, and a lot other apps... does it related to the screen refresh rate being not good like what happen to the text which become blurry while scrolling... im asking because my country didn't have the 925 yet and can't check any other device....

    You know I have the same problem. It only happens every once in a while so I don't see it as a big deal. But now I'm wondering whether it is a software glitch or screen glitch...

    Just to explain more, what i mean by flickering is scrolling discontinuity which appear like the scrolling is not smooth. I dont talking about the screen flashing..

    I don't have flickering. Only when I scroll, the view keeps reseting to the middle of the page. Happens pretty often.

    It does not solve anything, Do you have 925? any issues? i hate my mobile because of these issues... it looks like it happened when scrolling content that contains lots of images, the issue is major... people does not give many feedback about their 925...

    I noticed this issue from day 1 on my 925. It is most prominent when I am in the multitasking view (holding back button). Scrolling side to side produces choppiness on the app tiles.

    Also noticed on my 925!! I checked my old 8X, there was also the discontinuity in scrolling, but a little less bothering.

    Now that I have tested it... yes, horizontal scrolling is very, very bad, especially in the multitasking view :-(

    No I dont have the 925, but some people were experiencing the same issue after updating to GDR2 and Amber. They kept digging until they found out that the "double tap to awake" feature for glance was the problem.

    Yes, I notice that too if I do the scrolling slowly.... Looks like some kind of bad refresh rates. And the choppiness is happening on the top of each image snapshot, no any other places.

    I did happened to me few times but it does it for about a second or two and really its pretty much unnoticeable but I literally was starring at the screen and waiting for it to happen 😁 is not something that bothers me anyway. I'm still loved up with my L925 😍

    Currently facing the same strange "issue" with my brand new 925.
    Can't say if this hardware or software related ...
    That's a shame because coming from a Nexus 4 I really love this phone, its camera and the WP OS.
    Does anyone have a replaced unit and can confirm it did not (or did) solve the problem ? Thanks guys.

    EDIT : ok, just read the bug/defects thread, so this is an amoled-related issue (for the blurry text) and maybe a software issue for this glitch/tearing as my screen is nearly perfect otherwise ... well I'll deal with it I guess, waiting for an hypothetical fix.

    I have the choppiness when scrolling horizontally in the multitasking view as well... but only sometimes. It seems intermittent. I have double tap to wake turned on and sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't. There doesn't seem to by any rhyme or reason as to why it happens.
