i did some testing on mine when the screen would flicker when i press the back button to many times or when i flip the screen . one of the issues i think that was causing the the flickering was that it was because some widgets were i guess refreshing after i turn the screen . to test this what i did was i wipe clean the tablet and started to download all my apps but did not install APW widgets and did not use any other launchers that did the trick no more flickering on mine at all i am going to start testing other launchers and see if there is one that will work better . i tried apex and nova lets see what else is good in the store .

more testing
OK guys I did some more testing and I can definitely say that the flickering is caused by some software issues with some of the apps or widgets because I have tested many apps and launchers and some would cause the flickering and once the flickering started even if I uninstall whatever I downloaded the flickering stays . The only way the flickering went away was to reset the device and erase everything or reflash the Os . When I did that the flickering never came back . I think there might be a bug in the system. I highly doubt it is a hardware issue .
