Hmmmm. I'm going to have to respectfully disagree. (see post 2 for specific One X info)
(there are more examples out there *yes I know there is a regional aspect to this, I'm not going to overlook that fact. The US One X did receive mostly Sony panels) | HTC Evo 4G LTE - Screen Flicker
And | HTC Evo 4G LTE - Anyone have light leakage?
I lead both posts to here (there are more examples out there):

And Super LCD3 is a marketing term, and nothing more, it says nothing about display type or supplier.
I don't think I purported it as being anything more than a marketing term and didn't allude to it having any bearing on display type OR supplier... It is good to mention though for some of those that may not understand.

The 1080p screen has been proven since the Butterfly J, and I've yet to hear of screen issues on the DNA.

One reviewer claimed that the One screen was like the DNA, maybe just a tad better. I attribute that to observer bias, and expect that this screen is really the same one that has already been successful in their supply chain.
To the same token, the fact that the screen is 1080p does not really say anything about the display type or supplier either.

One other reviewer claimed that the One screen was like the DNA but maybe just a tad worse. It is a total wash on that front.

The Butterfly has a 5" screen, the J Butterfly has a 5" screen, the DNA has a 5" screen, and the "J" has a 4.3" screen. The One has a 4.7" display. Therefore they are not going to be able to utilize the same panel that they have been using for any of these other devices.

I'm not close enough to the DNA to know one way or the other about any display issues and I don't have any first hand experience with any of these more recent devices screens so I can't speak towards any issue regarding them.
I think a trip to "the other guys" carrier is in order for me in the near future before "The One" comes out to get a good visual baseline of these devices to mentally reference.
