    Default This seems like a new one, Nexus 4 faded screen and screen flicker after charging

    I haven't been able to find much about this problem online. I woke up this morning to an extremely white and faded nexus 4 screen, it also appeared to be flickering on and and off very quickly. As I used the phone over the past 20 minutes it improved greatly but now I'm left with two white lines running down either side of the screen which seem to be fading but extremely slowly (hard to tell).

    I'll update after work if there have been any improvements, hopefully with a picture if the problem persists.

    Let me know if anyone else out there has had this issue.

    Has this recurred for either of you?

    I found this same screen flickering this morning after turning the screen on while charging. The flickering settled down after about 30 minutes, but I'm worried it will become a recurring issue.

    Thanks,

    Greg

    Yup, happened to me about a month to month/half ago. Turned the phone off and then left it off for a bit. Turned it back on and could see the white lines on the black background on power up. Thought I was fcked, but luckily issue went away and screen looks perfect. Haven't had it happen since, so doesn't look like a "recurring" issue to me. But we'll see....

    The same just happened to my Nexus 4. I'm slightly panicked.... I guess I will need to contact customer services. Has this become a recurring problem for the other people who posted?
