Auto brightness on 4.2.1

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.
