Default Screen Flicker - Response from HTC

I have had my One X since last week on O2, I have noticed the screen flicker on full brightness. So I decided to contact HTC about this and they told me that there must be a problem with my device and to send it back to O2 and get a new one.

If that true then the new 1.28 OTA will not fix the problems that we myte have and itís a hardware fault 

What do you class as a flicker? I notice my screen dimming and brightening fairly regularly under artificial light. Is your flickering more regularly?

You are right. Go and return it for a new one... HTC told me the same!

I'm the same.

Had an undranded One X from phones for you with terrible screen flicker.

I phoned HTC and they said it was def not normal or something that could be fixed with a software update.

I'm just back from exchanging it for a new one and this one is flicker free.

seems there are different types of screen flickers...

i experienced once something like a bad analog tv reception on a very small rectangular portion in the upper left corner when using the browser. you couldn't figure out what was "underneath" it.

it disappeared the same way it appeared...out of the blue

Hi, guys. What do you mean by screen flicker? Im finding that with mine on full brightness it appears as if the backlight part is flickering. Is this what you guys have had? thanks

When you say screen flicker is this happening all the time? I mean are you talking on the home screen and in apps or just when things are loading etc...?

I just can't see how it can be hardware...

Mine is flickering at times too.It seems like just about every device that is out there is doing it. I still think its software based, and probably a setting to do with the LCD display. If its hardware then HTC are going to run out of phones...
