Is the flickering you're noticing in the Google Now, google search (from the launcher), netflix or youtube (with no auto brightness)? I never noticed any screen flickering except when on one of those apps at minimum brightness. Netflix was the worst, I just bumped up the brightness a few percent and it went away. I haven't noticed anything while reading any ebooks or browsing the internet.
I'm sure it's been mentioned in here but all the Tegra 3 devices have "Nvidia Prism" which constantly adjusts the screen's backlight while adjusting the contrast to save battery while watching video. For some reason on the Nexus while at minimum brightness it doesn't work well and makes the screen look like it's flickering. Prism is also the reason why the screen looks really washed out after watching a video, and turning the screen off and on again fixes it (or waiting a while). It's a known issue and hopefully Google fixes it with a software update.
