    Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this.

    I updated to Pie yesterday but now when i make or recieve a call, the screen flickers

    I have tried different themes with no luck and it seems to be the only screen it happens on

    Any idea please, im on S9+

    Thanks

    What happens if you cover the proximity sensor?

    I have a 9+ as well and the same issue. Not using a theme. Screen flickers when a call is received but stops once I answer it. Almost like to get your attention....

    Same flicker when I make a call and its ringing on the other end. Once they answer the flickering stops

    Haven't found a way to stop it.

    Try with vibrations off.
    Try with protective case off.
    Any other form of feedback or notification, too.
    Reset phone app notifications and preferences.
    Do you have blinking notification light?
    Edge notifications for calls?

    What exactly do you mean by "Reset phone app notifications and preferences"?

    Mine is doing the exact same thing and also with the stock email app. Just wait until the next update it will get resolved. If this turns out to be the only issue with an entire OS update I would be happy.

    Change animation settings in developer options. Change animation duration scale to .5. I had same issue and this fixed it for me.

    While I despise the animations and had turned them off. I appreciate that my call screen is not trying to give me seizures. .5 it is. Thank you @williams448 .

    I agree. I like my animations to be set to 0, but I couldn't handle the flickering.

    Thanks guys for the solution. I have note 9 and Googled and found this solution.

    You can leave first two at 0X. It's "animator duration scale" that needs to be at least .5X to stop the flicker.

    Thanks all
    It fixed mine but we shouldn't have to find workarounds.
    Let's hope a patch sorts it

    Thanks again
