HTC touch screen problems

abhinav.ind 04 Apr 2012, 06:43 posted on 1

I was a big fan of HTC fan. I love their build and enhanced UI. Currently I am using Legend. I bought it the day it was launched in India. From last 2-3 months I have been facing touch problems. I searched a lot and found that its the crappy digitizer. Lot of people are facing this problem with HTC. People using Samsung never had such problems. Some people are even using Samsung for 3 years or more.

I want to know is this hardware problem has been rectified in new HTC phones? As I want to buy a new phone now and OneX is attracting me a lot.

HTC touch screen problems have been confirmed not only in India but through the world. Yet HTC has been indifferent ever since. The deny it and never acknowledge it. The advice would be to search for options based upon user recomendations one personally knows. It is widely believed that HTC mainpulates internet and media based RANKING units.

My HTC1 M8 sometimes would get very hot to the touch when used heavily, but one morning I woke up to find the screen had pretty much exploded overnight while charging. I had a plastic film-type screen protector on it and that held it together so that the phone still works, and I taped the protector on so it stays in place. I called AT&T and they referred me to the insurance I had purchased. The insurance wanted $150 to replace the phone. I called HTC as I think it is a defect in the phone and I have had it less than a year. They tell me it is my fault for charging overnight. If you go into a store that sells these phones, they leave them plugged in 24/7 and they don't explode, so overnight charging is not expected to make the screen explode. I read that HTC will replace the screen if it is less than a year old, but don't believe it!

Which model HTC are you using? It must be a one off case. HTC has improved a lot over the years.

This was a year ago and the phone (HTC one M8) was less than a year old at the time. It was a brand new one with a two year at&t contract. I paid for replacement with the insurance and the replacement is doing okay. Gets hot, but hadn't exploded on me anyhow.
