I can confirm that the April patch does not address the screen flashing and green distortion problem. 

PROBLEM:
Thus far, all four Pixel 3 devices have consistently flickered like a strobe light and/or the screen would turn green green like an old TV trying to get a signal. 

WHEN DOES IT OCCUR (consistent in all devices so far):
---This occurs in an environment that is usually in a low light setting. 
---The phone brightness is set between 10 to 80 percent. 
---It does in both night light and non night light setting.
---The flashing/green can start at the login screen (but not all the time).
---The flashing/green can start after you've logged in and are using the device.
---This also occurs in safe mode.
---Manufacture reset does not fix the problem. 


WHEN SCREEN FLASHING DOES NOT OCCUR (THOUGH NOT SOLUTIONS):
---Generally putting the phones in gray scale and setting brightness to 100 percent has reduced the frequency but is not a solution. 
---In bright daylight the flashing rarely happens.


I attached two pictures that show the screen flashing/green after the April update. And another screenshot of the OS.

Yep, same damn problem here. It's frankly f**kin ridiculous. My phone is four months old. And I suspect that this isn't just simply a software fix. I'm so pissed with this phone. It's basically unusable when this occurs.

Same issue here. At first the flickering was temporary but now it persists even after locking the screen. Assuming this is also draining the battery.

I can also confirm Google Support has been fantastic in all cases. I have contacted the support team for this too.

My wife just got a refurb Pixel 3 this week, her battery was crashing from 100% to 0% sometimes in 30 seconds, just started it.

Verizon was really great getting her the refurb but now we're on vacation and not sure how it's going to work.

Turning off the AOD helped for now. Calling Verizon back tomorrow morning.
