Hi, I had the exact same problem and I’ve been debugging this for a while.

What I’ve done is the following:

  • Create a project using GLES3
  • Revert settings to use GLES2


  • No problems on Android Emulator or Windows
  • Screen flickering all the time on OnePlus6+

I did the actions in:

And out of nowhere it worked. I did a process of elimination to pinpoint exactly what the might be by diffing the projects and re-adding settings.

In the end I saw that the setting: ‘run/low_processor_mode’ in the file: ‘godot.project’ was set to ‘true’. Removing this line (set to false by default) resolved my issue for the screen flickering on Android.

I hope this helps for anyone encountering the same issue. Just started with Godot and I really enjoy it :).

Thanks for this, that solved the flickering problem in Android! I had this line on _ready func on my main node:

OS.low_processor_usage_mode = true

Now, I have this one and bye bye flickering:

OS.low_processor_usage_mode = OS.get_name() != "Android"

I experienced this recently,It turned out to be a syntax error in the code. Make sure all inbuilt functions are spelt correctly and make sure your code is properly indented
