One of my friends got this phone One X on launch date here in India and he is facing display corruption/banding issue. Then we googled up and found similar issues on youtube.

New reports from The Verge are reporting cosmetic problems with its smaller cousin the One S as well

Thanks for the heads up. I'm not personally considering this phone but I'm sure others will appreciate being forewarned. :)

No software in the world can fix the One S issue. :D

This would be annoying too.

Not going to consider the One X I don't think. Non removable battery and no MicroSD Slot. If I wanted to be locked down like that I'd go for an iPhone

I've picked up the Xperia S and honestly can't say that the missing SD slot is an issue, with 32GB of storage there seems more than enough space for what I would want on there at any given time. The battery doesn't effect me too much but can understand it being an issue for those that may be away from a powersource for a length of time.

Not the only issue either. Their coating they put on the phones is chipping as well. HTC says the coating should be as hard as ceramic but there is issues.

Never even considered. But thanks for the heads up. Somehow I don't see HTC putting Benjamins on people's credit for shamelessly releasing another public beta of a technological marvel of a trainwreck.

IMHO I think HTC rushed this up and did not test it completely.

Any 1st gen product would have an issue and I dont understand why people are complaining. If this happened from Apple(Antennagate on iPhone 4, Overheating on iPAD3), people would still buy it ;)

FYI only the black HTC One S has cosmetic issue and this was reported on XDA which got popular and was picked up by news sites very quick

On the other hand the HTC ONE X has its own problems :p

I wouldn't personally get ANY htc right now

i keep hearing about hardware defects on WAY too many of them

htc needs to get their act together or they're gonna end up running them selves down to the ground (not to mention all their devices look almost identical)

First,wh did he need to make a video about it instead of just asking right out about it in a quick short post... This trend about making videos for anything that can be done in a quick two lines of text is annoying.

Second, he can send a "massage" ...

Their fix was to return the phone for another one. Not really a fix.
