Had my S8 + for a couple of days now and have been experiencing intermittent glitches in the form of white static streaks on the top half of the screen - they sometimes appear momentarily while scrolling through apps or the home screens. Seriously frustrating!
Have tried a factory reset and the issue is still there.
Anyone else experiencing this?

Hello, I just wanted to share my experience with this bug/glitch and how I fixed it. The very next day after I bought the s8+, it started to present the flickering screen error, after a lot (I really meant a lot) of testing, either in safe mode or not, the problem persisted. A few days later I had a hunch with the network connection, and now I can confirm this problem shows up whenever the cell phone tries to connect to the gsm network, as the options in network selection are lte/wcdma/gsm in the settings, this was a kickback.. so after looking a little in the play store I found an app that allows you to select/force any type of network. After downloading it, I just selected lte/wcdma and now works perfectly. I did select several times just the gsm network just to be sure this was the bug/glitch trigger, and indeed it is. Feel free to ask any other Q's.
Can you lower your screen resolution and let us know if you are still experiencing the issue?
To do this go to Settings > Display > Screen Resolution and then adjust the slider to a lower resolution.
Thanks for the information.
We have escalated this feedback for you and we will let you know once we've got a response.
Does this happen on any apps in particular? Is it only when you are scrolling?
8 days of use with 5+ hours a day of screen use on my S8+ and never had I experienced a stutter in the scrolling of the screen in any screen mode (other than a pause due to data loading time) and being a ex nexus user I can tell you the problem of stutter is there even in stock android as there is no way android (yet) has of using a pre load system to buffer.
