It's actually a hardware issue. Otherwise Amazon would have an ota to fix it.

I've noticed mine flickering a little bit, but it doesn't happen all that often. I never used it stock, so I just figured it was an issue with the Gapps ROM. Again, it doesn't happen often, so it doesn't bother me too bad, but just to make your mind at ease....you aren't the only one to notice this.

No, this is a different item. Like you, I turn off the auto-brightness too. I haven't nailed down when it happens, but it's just a quick bit of feint flickering for me, then back to normal. Kind of hard to explain I guess. I've noticed it a couple times a day since I got mine last week with pretty heavy usage.
