My screen flickers and goes blank when sunlight hits the view finder on the phone. In the house or shade it doesn't do that. I can even use a flash light and point it at the view finder and it flickers and the screen goes blank.

Yep - same - turning off adaptive brightness and setting display brightness manually to about 80% stabilized it - cant do 100% - issue still happens if you max manual brightness

Yes,the same problem occurred on my S20 FE immediately after an update on 4/6/2021. This is a critical issue, as I use my phone to navigate off-trail in the field for work, where I need a bright screen.

Is there a way to unwind that update? Has this issue been reported to Samsung? If not, how do I do so? Very frustrated that an update, which is supposed to make a device better, actually disables it.

Is anyone having issues with a flickering screen in the sunlight after the update?

Is there a patch for the screen flickering issue? Turning off adaptive brightness fixes some of the issue, but not all.
