that is what it is supposed to do if you have the brightness set to auto (settings--->sound and display--->brightness). it will adjust to the light that you are in. but the transition isn't real fluid....it could appear to flash (as you describe it). i felt that it did actually make it easier to view at times.....but i turned it off and set my brightness fairly low (for battery reasons....it saves a bit). it is difficult to view in bright sun with it set as low as i have it though.
Thanks for the reply AZ, I figured it was just doing what it is supposed to do. Your right, it isnt very fluid. Hows yours working out otherwise? I havent had any issues at all with mine, as a matter of fact I am managing to squeek almost a full 2 days out of the battery.
The more i use the phone and discover what it is capable of the more I love it.
no problems. the only thing i've noticed is that in my alarm clock settings i have the "side button action" set to be a snooze button. it doesn't always work. seems like if the vollume is on then it works as a snooze, but if it's on vibrate then it doesn't do anything. but other than that, the phone is great!!
