[Q] HOX+ international screen flicker issues
I bought my HOX+ inter device in June and within a month I had screen flicker issues. The screen would flicker around the edges and would become very prominent especially at more than 50% brightness and with lighter colours. The device was never rooted and so never had a custom ROM installed. HTC support suggested that I run the phone in safe mode, restore to factory settings and if that did not work take it to a repair center. I tried the first two options but as that did not work I took the device to a HTC repair center and after checking the device for a week they were kind enough to give me a replacement for which I was very grateful. The funny part is that the replacement set had exactly the same issue! I had just received the set and was on the way out of the store when I noticed the issue again. So now I've left it with them to see what can be done about it.
I have read that this very problem was an issue with the HTC one x but so far not so widespread with the HTC one x+. I have also read two or three guys mention this problem in the second thread in this sub-forum but they have not received any replies yet. I would like to ask if anybody else has faced similar issues and whether there are any permanent fixes. Thanks!
Update: I received the replacement HTC one x+ this evening and guess what, the flicker issue is present on this one too. The guy in the shop asked me to use the device till Monday as tomorrow being a Sunday its not a business day. Said he'll get me a refund on Monday. And since I haven't as of yet heard from any forum members how to resolve this issue, I guess that's exactly what I will do and even recommend to other people not to get HTC products in the future. One device may be faulty but three in a row surely means that the company is going downhill!
