Question [Q] International One X "black screen" Fix question

Just had the "the phone is working but the screen won't power on" (Black Screen) problem. the fix to which after trying the light sensor, and multiple reboots, is this:

Simply drop the phone face down twice while seated, then try the power button again. As dumb as that sounds, it works, at least for me. Found a video on youtube.

The question is, how long have I got? The phone has been a bit balky of late, losing charge quicker, wifi hasn't worked well since the JB 4.2.2 update, now this. I love the phone, but I don't want it to fail before I'm ready, as it were.

Ideas? Experiences, (anecdotal and otherwise) anyone seen this before?

Cheers!

Unhappy And the answer is?

Not long as it turns out. Managed to get a backup, note down my desktop and few other things, then it crapped out for good. installed KitKat on my old Galaxy S, socket my SIM and we're off to the races. Works like a charm and surprisingly quick for it's age. So now you know.
