Ok this is what I notice recently,

No flickering problem on heavy games, Youtube App are fine, video players fine, everything seems normal.

But when go Chrome browser and play an embeded video, or any video on a website, the whole screen brightness flickering, pretty bad, depend on what's in the video,(any brightness level, to put 100% for more visible flickering)

And it only happens on 90hz and 120hz refresh rate

Can anyone do the test to confirm if it is just me?

To test:

Play youtube video on Chrome browser (not the youtube app)

Or play the ff7 remake game review video on gamespot website, that triggers flickering pretty bad for me (i cant post link here)

Please test for me if your phone also flickering by playing this video on Chrome browser at 90hz/120hz

If it's also happen on other user phones, could it be fixed on future update??
