oh okay, thanks! I thought it's my eyes that are playing on me.

Cus I followed the battery tweak from surface tip and I remembered getting about 13hrs on battery saving mode before the tweak.

If your still under warranty, maybe best to get repair or exchange, too bad mine is out of warranty already, can only hope MS fix it with a firmware update.

For me is the problem only happen once and seem last 2 day is working fine.

As for hot issue, I do use a fan to blow at the back of the unit, I normally use it as laptop mode
oh my rm like oven if fan nt blowing directly. in those times that it heat up, i using it as laptop also.

i gt buy the extended warranty last time. urs sent for repair liao? how's it? how's the rma process like ar?

No, to request for repair MS charge USD29, I found this ridiculous, some more some user who got back their repair or exchange SP4 turn out getting the same issue back again, I don't want to waste $$ for something that is unknown or by luck.

Anyway, the Microsoft Forum Moderator is getting info from the affected user on this flickering problem.

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...=1493859072279

My advice to those intend to buy the SP4 in coming PC Show/CEE put on hold first.

Last week I saw one of the demo set at Challenger Lot 1 store more serious than mine, the whole screen is full with horizontal line, once I touch the screen the display start shaking and turn white, if you saw it, do you dare to buy???

Check the Youtube comment below, this Daniel mention he bought in Feb this year already got the horizontal line and shaking

and there are more Youtube about the issue too

MS has mentioned that there'll not be a SP5 unless there are significant improvements to SP4. But there will be a improved SP4 with newer cpu. So far from leaks, the upcoming new SP4 has the same physical looks.

Yup, no more numbers.

I've reported on why it's so. Also have to wait as it won't come to Singapore till much later.
