    My SP4 updated this past weekend and now I see the screen flickering. After a bit of searching, I found that some SP4 devices have this issue. I can't see if it's defective, or a result of the update. It was purchased in 2015, so I would imagine it's well past the warranty. Is MS offering a replacement for this, or should expect that this thing will become unusable?

    I never saw the flickering prior to the update, so I don't know if it's a result of that or just a coincidence.

    Thanks.

    I see some flickering while using Edge on my SP2 15 inch. Verified same with my SB. Many users report similarly with 1809. Very likely due to software/firmware and not hardware, and will eventually be addressed.
