Re: For those with screen flicker??
Have you recently changed your brightness setting to Auto? Mine flickers at times but mostly when the auto setting is checked. The reason for this is probably due to the N7 adjusting its brightness level according to the various amounts of light in the room shinning on it. If there is more than one source of light in a room (sitting in a chair near a reading light with overhead room lights on as well) I've noticed as I move my N7 around while sitting the screen slightly flickers as it's adjusting to the different light levels in a room. I usually read while the TV is on and the only light on in the room is from a light stand next to the chair. As I move the N7 around on my lap (holding it up and then down, moving it right then left) the amount of direct light shifts in its intensity and it drives my N7 crazy and flickers as it's adjusting from one brightness level to another.

I guess you need to determine how significant of an issue this is (is it happening a lot and is the flicker very noticeable?). Also, you need to ask yourself how bad it's bothering you. If it's an infrequent occurrence and not very noticeable unless you're looking for it, then I'd just live with it. Maybe give it some more time and see if it gets worse (mine has not) and get a feel for how much it's really bothering you -- it may even fix itself after a little while.
The return process with Google Play is very simple and easy. Call them, tell them what's going on and that you want to get a replacement. They'll set it up and you'll get your new one in a couple days via UPS. They'll email a shipping label to print out and they give you 21 days to ship the old one back to them. They're very pleasant about doing it and you do get a brand-new unit -- not a refurb. Good luck!
