    Hi,

    I am waiting for my HTC One X however there has been quite a few cases where people have mentioned there being different types of screen issues. Is anyone having any problems?

    Do you mean like the "yellow tint" issue as with the Xperia S?

    Issues such as when you push on the edges of the curved screen it causes the display to flex and causes patches of discolored pixels where ever you touch on the screen which apparently in time can damage the screen.

    I just want to know if anyone on here is having any problems or if people are just exaggerating and wanting something to moan about.

    Mine does that when you press the edges but it's pretty normal as far as I'm concerned, especially for such a thin device. I've had hundreds of screens that have done this in the past and no harm has come to them. It's just the liquid crystal moving about when pressure is applied, AMOLEDs wouldn't do that because it's different technology.

    Besides, if you don't press the edges in it doesn't happen, that's not a normal thing to do if you ask me! unlike the antenna gate issue with the iPhone, which did happen in normal conditions and was a worse problem IMO.

    Jason has it spot on, it only happens if you apply quite a lot of pressure to the screen and/or sides. Cnet look to be making mountains out of molehills to be honest with you.

    ^ This.

    And CNet failed to mention that the Nexus S 4G did the exact same thing, and it's a SAMOLED screen.

    ;) :)

    I tested this on 3 display models today, and all three were suffering from the same "design-flaw". 2 of them were a lot more sensitive than the 3rd one. The 2 bad ones didn't need a lot of pressure at all. But on a device this thin, with that thin glass, of course you are gonna be able to disturb the LCD.

    I personally haven't pressed on the sides to see how it affects it but haven't had any other screen issues.

    Thanks for all your comments. I did have a play around with this phone in the 3 store and did not have any problems with the screen.

    To be honest I feel like Cnet gave a bad review on this phone.

    I have had the yellow tint on mine. It is being sent back for a replacement. The yellow tint is running across the top of the screen in the notification bar area. Cant be seen unless viewing a full screen white picture or during the reboot process. Pretty annoying considering it has been in a leather pouch since arriving. But phones4u were great exchange sorted within 20 mins. But I ordered it online so I have to send it back before I get a replacement.

    My One X does this, but you really do need to press hard. Incidentally, it's one of the 'white box' review samples.

    The Xperia S does it too if pressed hard enough.

    Also - I can get this 'problem' on both the left and right hand sides, but if you press hard enough in the middle of the screen (or in fact anywhere) you can get it to a lesser extent.

    But, guess what, any LCD screen does it if there's a soft panel above it that can flex even the tiniest bit. Perhaps the person who reviewed the phone forgot what LCD stands for? The clue is in the first letter!!

    EDIT: I'm uploading a video to YouTube showing the 'problem' (link may take an hour or so to work)

    I have been on other forum rooms and so many people are having problems with their screen. There was one person who was on his fourth replacement. Do you guys think it is a software or hardware issue? because apparently people who are on version 128 have not had any problems. A bit of a put of.

    I have this phone coming tomorrow and I have to say I am not looking forward to it.

    I've had no issues with my screen whatsoever, it is a beautiful screen. The distortion at the edges is a none issue so I wouldn't worry about that.

    I'm not sure what this version "128" refers to? but my software version is 1.26.161.2 if that helps ease your mind :)

    I don't consider it an issue. If you weren't highlighted to it you wouldn't know it existed. You do need to press hard to get the flex in the screen. The phone as a woke unit doesn't flex which is the important bit.
    The other 'issue' that has been mentioned about apps starting by themselves I think is down to the way the phone is held. The heel of you thumb can activate apps. Happens if I hold mu iPad that way too.
    Also as modern screens are resistance activated, being close but not touching can activate too. Again something that can be replicated on my iPad.
    I don't worry about it. Nothing is perfect, unless of course you're an apple fan!

    Thanks guys,

    There must just be a small portion of people that have been unlucky.

    Hi All,

    Have owned a ONE X for about a week. I bought an original HTC screen protector and it doesn't fit very well. The screen curves around the edges so you don't get full adhesion to the screen. Where it does not connect, it is obvious. I have written to HTC about it but .........

    I am not griping about the following but wonder if any other owners have had the same experience

    - the rear of the phone picks up finger prints easily. The plasticky/rubbery finish is not easy to wipe off
    - from day 1 there was a lag between swipe screens. I changed from a Desire HD to the ONE X and was hoping the more powerful phone would overcome it but seems not.

    Apparently there is a update coming real soon, I would imagine this will make sense run more smoothly.

    Thanks Nikki, will let you know how it goes. Can not wait for this device, I am constantly on Youtube watching reviews and boxing.

    Aside from the apparent problem noticed by cnet, anyone notice the screen flicker (very slightly) on occasion when swiping between homescreens? Is this normal behaviour for this type of screen?
