But Pro 5 seems to have some flickering issues too right, but Maybe not so widespread.

Hmm.... lucky I switched to iPad Pro 12.9 second gen... too powerful lol. Especially for web browsing, screen refresh rate, brightness, battery life, watching videos... everything thrash sp4 upside down. Lightweight and Super slim, doesn’t get hot. When I use sp4 ... it’s just way too inferior...I have used sp4 since 2015... mine is first batch preordered and tio boot loop on first day and I used 7 days to resolve the issue. Still can remember lol. Can’t even download their iso file properly from their webpage

Call in Microsoft, they will perform a diagnostic run through, if it's hardware, they will replace it.

there is currently a "recall" for surface pro 4 with flickering issues, no need to pay even if warranty is expired

I have owned 3 laptops before Surface and for my usage and everyday needs, this is the most suitable for me. Sure I had issues but it's all been ironed out.

I understand a lot of people will raise hell and complain when things don't go smoothly but remember there are people who are content with the product that just remains silent.

for the past 10yr, I owned 7 laptops, from 10" netbook to a 17" gaming laptop. including ultralight laptops, SP4 then this SP2017.

In term of weight & flexibility, SP suits me most. Only complain is unable to upgrade the RAM & storage. I m using i7 256GB. Got a 256GB memory card, but the speed sucks.

To be honest, I don't know if you are happy about the form factor or just Surface Pro in particular. I have used many laptops before, but this hybrid form factor is really good for me. Thankful to MS for the introduction of this form factor. In fact I was quite interested in getting the Surface Pro 4 previously and thank God I did not as I was waiting for the free keyboard promotion. For the premium price they charge, none of these critical QC issues should have happened. And even if they do slip out, the fix/ recall should not take this long. Almost every generation of Surface Pro if not every generation have some shop stopping bugs and fixes coming in only after widespread complaints.

Anyway, I ended with a Lenovo Miix 720 which was cheaper than the price of a Surface Pro 4 with i5 and 256GB storage without the keyboard. The Miix 720 came with a slightly slower i5 processor, double the storage size, and comes bundled with keyboard and pen.

They will cause more unhappiness if they charged for the repairs. The issue has been around for a long time and it actually took them a very long time to issue the recall/ repairs.
