    Is anyone's brightness wacky after the update? Mine constantly changes every couple of seconds. I just had to turn it off.

    i never used it tbh. even on my phone (lg esteem) and on other devices ive used it just doesnt work right (still use it on my phone tho) the battery is good enough that i dont have to use it. i just have it set about a quarter of the way over and its good :)

    sometimes i notice that it flickers on the home screen slightly even though auto brightness is off and screen is set to 1% brightness.

    That's actually a very common issue. It's believed that it may be hardware related unfortunately, since it flickers sometimes if there is a lot of network activity while the screen is on a low brightness.

    In my opinion, it may not be worth trying to replace since people have gotten many replacements in a row that had the same problem. Until Asus or Google addresses it, we may just have to learn to live.

    Mine does the exact same thing. I think I'm just going to turn off auto brightness as well. It gets annoying, the constant back and forth.

    It's definitely an issue with 421. It wasn't like this before. Maybe the next update will fix it
