Since yours is showing this issue out of the box, then it's either a hardware fault or the firmware on the phone. A lot of users here do not post what part of the world they're in nor their carrier, so it's hard to say if it's related to firmware or not. I'm running the unbranded official ROM from HTC and have no issues with banding - screen quality is excellent.
