HTC on One X screen flaw: 'We would never let that ship'

CNET UK discovered a flaw with the HTC One X's curved screen during its review, but HTC has an explanation -- sort of.

A design flaw that afflicts the two curved edges of the HTC One X's screen, which we flagged in our review of the handset, may only be a problem with demo devices -- and may not affect the final retail build of the units being sold to mobile users, according to the company.

While testing the HTC One X, I found that pushing on the edges of the curved screen causes the display to flex and patches of discolored pixels to track your finger movements (see video below). It is also sometimes possible to accidentally activate something on screen by mistake, simply by gripping the phone's edges tightly.
