    Hey guys the past couple of days I have played with two Droid Xs, as I was playing with them I was checking out build quality and things of that sort. I noticed that if the screen is pressed somewhat hard it will flex, like the glass touches the LCD, and gives off like a ripple where you can see the two touching. I know why would anyone press the screen hard, but to me that just doesn't seem normal. My droid didn't do that and neither did any Incredibles i tried. So I was just wondering if your guys' screens did that as well. It just seems kind of weird to me so please tell me what you guys think. Thanks.

    I haven't noticed this at all.

    I can do that on my 3GS. I think that's pretty normal if you press down very hard. Why would you do that though? :)

    I don't know haha, I don't have an X of my own yet and I'm looking into getting one. So I was checking em out and I have like OCD about my phones so I was checking everything out and it just happened, granted they were display units so they might have been handled kind of roughly before I got to play with them.

    Ok cool that's good to hear, it seemed to happen towards the center of the screen on the Xs I saw.

    Thats the thing though, it was only the X that did it.

    Just got my droid x a week ago and my screen does the same thing. In fact, sometimes I can see the ripple even when i'm not even touching the screen. Sometimes its there, sometimes it isn't. I think I'll take it back because I don't want it to get worse. I just wish they had any at all in stock to exchange. I waited long enough for this stupid phone.

    I have a Blackberry Tour that does the same thing when pressed hard, and that screen is tiny. It never caused a problem though and after almost a year of owning it, the screen still looks great.


    Plus everyone who probably goes into the store smash on the display unit.

    With the X having a bigger screen it's going to take less pressure to push the glass in to the point that it touches the LCD.

    I know that putting pressure on the screen can do that, especially with the screen as large as it is, but I don't think the ripple/discoloration should be there even when I'm not touching the screen at all.

    Nice! You get "ripple" live wallpaper without the battery drain! ;)

    My X is very solid- doesnt seem to be any flex at all.
