this is very simple, like you said QC is shipping unacceptable phones
we are not sure why this is happening, but im pretty sure its the rush
Yes ,google adds flickering, didd't know that was normal. On my "late" Desire S I had custom roms with disabled adds and/ or don't remember flickering.
Speaking of QC, my Desire S, made in Taiwan, built in March 2011 (so first batch) had a huge gap between the screen bezel and the aluminium unibody (you could stick two sheets of paper in all the way to the motherboard!)
Being ordered from the UK, the vendor offered to exchange it but I just felt I couldn't part with it for another two or three weeks so I sent it to the repair center here, complaining about the above mentioned issue. Guess what? Two days later, I get the phone back with the statement, i quote " ... the issue you mentioned in your complaint is not regarded as a hardware manufacturing defect..."
So I just used black silicone gasket to gently fill in the gap and 30' later and still one year later, not a single problem, phone ran like a dream, flashed it hundreds of times (maybe exagerating...)
Like now, then I was flooded with emails and surveys from Htc customer support.
I think they rushed the HOX into production to get 2 to 3 months of "best product out there" before Samsung (the only worthy android competitor in my oppinion) comes up with something better.
The same thing happened with the Desire S, they wanted to get some Easter sales and push it on the market before the dual core hysteria started...
Just my two cents, but I see a nice future for my Htc One X at least for the yaer coming...
