There is no consensus yet that HT24 serials are better. We cannot deduce this because there are far less HT24 models out there so far. But also, I have seen people with HT24 reporting the same type of issues, such as screen flex, gaps etc etc. I don't think HTC would have had time to correct production issues yet. I am sure later batches like HT27 etc will have a greater reliability rate.
