Default Screen Goes Crazy

I've had my Note for under a month now. I've been ever so careful with it. My heart skipped a beat when one day, all of a sudden, the screen just went mad!

I scoured the Web but couldn't find any other instance of this but the other day, in another thread, a few people have said that they've experienced the same problems. It's happened to my friends phone as well. I thought both of us were sold defective pieces to be honest but it looks like a global issue.

This is not just a case of screen flicker and screen changing colours on a white background. It goes haywire! Almost like the old television sets with their rainbow effect.

This has happened pre and post ICS; so it's definitely not a software issue. It has to be a hardware defect.

When I tried taking a screen shot of it, it just took a screen shot of the app I was using before the madness began.

It happened again last night. This time, fortunately or unfortunately, the screen stayed that way till I hit the power button. I had enough time to take a photo of it using a friends phone. Check it out :

I have this sometimes too, but I don't use live wallpapers so doubt if this has anything to do with it.

+1 I don't use live wallpapers either. Phone's not rooted either. It's probably an issue with the graphics chip. And it seems to be a global issue and not limited to any region as such.

It's happened on my phone before and after upgrading to ICS. So I doubt that's the issue.
