Default [Q] HTC One Stuck Pixels - Anyone Else?

Hi,

I have noticed that there are some stuck pixels on my HTC One screen by accident when using camera in the dark.
Has anyone else noticed stuck pixels on their device?

A 'stuck pixel' as opposed to 'dead pixel' is a permanently lit pixel (white in my case, clearly visible on black background) on a LCD display.

I thought I had two stuck pixels, but it seems to be a slight flaw in the glue between the glass and screen. For example, if the brightness is set to auto so that it dims in a dark room, I cannot see any dots. But if the brightness is high, and then view in a dim room with a black screen displayed, I see two dots. Those dots change in brightness depending on the angle I hold the phone. You may have real stuck pixels, but I just wanted to mention this weird phenomena that can look like them.

I have a very similar thing to what Jonstatt described. Sounds a lot like stuck pixels to me. On my third handset for this reason.

I'm considering contacting Phones4U with that issue. There should not be any display defects on a brand new, quality handset.

I did my third exchange this morning and finally got a flawless unit. Well worth it, and I would agree that there shouldn't be any pixels stuck on a brand new handset, especially if you are going to have it for 2 years!

yea i got a stuck one as well. It's in the last row on the far far left side of the phone so not noticeable but I know it's there ...
Shouldn't get this on a phone this expensive.

On the other hand my as well as many others on the forum's S3's screens were pretty horrible so i guess it's hard to get a perfect one.

Where are your pixels located ? is it enough to warrant a return ? thing is i got mine from phones4u in the UK but i'm in France now so wondering if I should send it back to HTC ?

edit: DAMNNNN just did the black picture test, so now I have at least 5 stuck pixels, wtf???

Default Pixel Fixer

there's an app in Play Store by the name of Pixel Fixer or something like that. There are a few free versions you could try identify if there is any dead pixels and it'll try to fix them. It worked for my old Motorola Defy, it might work for the One.

EDIT: sorry, it fixes stuck pixels...dead pixels are, well, basically dead...can't do anything about those.

I'll try the Pixel Fixer and if it doesn't work will get in touch with P4U,

Dear god not again.
This was same thing had happened with One X launch. I had to return 4 devices back to HTC to get the one without any dead pixels, or screen separation issue back then.
This time I have Developer edition on pre-order. If this one has dead pixels, I am simply going to return it and wont bother again. I am not going through the same thing I went with One X again in my life.
