    Hi!

    I have had my Huawei P9 Lite (Android 6.0, EMUI 4.1.1) for less than a year.
    A flickering bar has appeared a few weeks ago at the bottom of the screen. It's always there, even during the Huawei loading screen when I reboot it. Also, it seems to have gotten bigger over time, covering a larger portion of the screen. It doesn't seem to affect the touch screen though.
    Finally, the bar doesn't appear on screenshots.

    Any ideas how to get rid of it?

    Looks to me like your screen or digitizer is going bad. It wouldn't show up on screen shots like you mentioned. I'd check your warranty and seek a replacement.
