    Recently my screen started flickering. It's very consistent. It doesn't do it when I turn the phone on, but after I swipe to unlock. It doesn't do it again, even as I open and close apps. I'm not using any 3rd party screen locks or launchers. It's not a huge deal, but concerns me that a bigger issue is looming. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    I would bet that you have the screen brightness set on auto. That is just the automatic screen brightness adjusting to the ambient light level. Change it to a fixed screen brightness and turn the screen on and off and I'm sure it will go away. I notice exactly the same thing if my screen brightness is on auto. No problems with the phone.

    Unfortunately, that was no it. My brightness was fixed. I did try setting it to ambient and then back to ficed, but had no luck.

    Dang, thought that was it. Mine flickers slightly when I first unlock it, but I think it's only when it's on auto brightness. I almost always leave it on auto and I've only tested it a couple of times on fixed brightness and it doesn't seem to do it. If there are no other problems, I wouldn't worry about it.
