Issue

Some Samsung devices have issues with a flickering screen when a popup is shown (keyboard input or list selection).
This is caused by a bad driver implementation.

Solution A

Make sure you've installed the latest OS updates. Samsung already fixes this issue for most devices.

Solution B

  1. Activate developer settings in your device
    1. Settings -> About phone -> Tap 6x Times on "Build number"
  1. Disable hardware overlays
    1. Settings -> Developer options -> Check "Disable HW-Overlays"

Note: These settings might be reversed when restarting the device.
