    Hi all, wondering if anyone can help. Ive only had my desire a couple of days and for some reason a white line has appeared across the screen, wondering if its been damaged. It hasnt been dropped or abused in anyway so quite confused. Tried a hard reset but to no avail? Pic attached if anyone can figure out otherwise back to the shop it goes!

    yeah, hardware issue most likely. if you've only had it a couple of days, push for an exchange rather than a repair.

    Is it only visible with the screen on?

    If yes, then warranty/replace. If no, then it indicates damage (cracked screen - thus not covered by warranty), and a good reason to be very careful keeping it in trouser pockets.

    no there isnt a crack on the glass, certainly cant feel anything and it is only visible when the unit is on. I'll send it back for sure, thanks all the advice! :)

    Just because a screen is cracked, does not necessarily mean it's not covered by the warranty. A screen can still crack due to a manufacturing defect which is what warranties are all about, defects.

    If you have a cracked screen & there is no obvious external damage, like a dent in the case from where it impacted the ground, then they are supposed to at least have a qualified technician pull the phone apart and examine it to determine the cause.

    Especially if the screen cracks shortly after purchase, that's possibly a defect, and they will possibly just replace it on the spot (assuming no dents). By the look of those photos, I would probably replace it & then cross my fingers that HTC agree with me.
