    Unacceptable HTC this is bullcrap, i Knew i saw it again on my 2nd handset... in a different location..... i posted that i saw an a green dot in the forums of what appear to be a dead pixel on the 8x screen... people asked for proof but i returned my first 8x phone and got a replacement and i thought i saw the dot again in a different location.. and it appears i have bad luck twice in a row with brand new 8x phones with dead pixel in different locations.... this has to be a widespread issue... guys what do i do?? theres clearly a manufacturing issue of something and needs to be spread through different technology sites to get HTC to respond to this issue im extremely pissed and u guys would be to in my position if u had this on ur brand new phone.. or in my case twice :(.... I wanna yell at a HTC rep
    WPCentral post this on ur front page haha both phones being shipped with dead pixels is UNREAL AND SAD

    link to my orginial posted thread i was talking about:
    Anyone else seeming Little Green dot on screen?

    I had a dead pixel on my 1st but second one was fine except for a slightly loose volume rocker. Typical HTC quality though. Just be happy that one corner of the screen isn't raised. lol

    Oh my goodness ... this is crazy ... 2 dead pixels? Call the CEO!

    Alright .. had to get that out. It sux that you had a bad experience, but this stuff happens, humans refer to it as bad luck. Yes yes ... you paid all this money you earned in the coal mines for it ... and HTC is struggling ... so somehow they need to make sure you are happy ... hold on .. is this the HTC or Nokia forum??

    I agree, It does suck ... but if I were you I would have checked it thoroughly when I got the 2nd device.

    Looks like a good opportunity for a new app - The HTC 8x Dead Pixel Tester.

    Sometimes you could fix dead pixels on laptops with a video test, you may want to try WPBench (free) and do their 'display' test.

    I noticed some bad pixels on my 8X too..and also a lot of 'blinking pixels'. They only show up when moving and panning for instance a zoomed in image. Look at the darker parts of your zoomed in picture and you'll notice it when panning the image around slowly.

    That's not a dead pixel, it a stuck pixel. A dead pixel is always black. A stuck pixel is any other color. Sometimes just tapping on your screen a pencil eraser will fix it, or running one of those fast color flash test will fix it.

    I returned my 8x since I was in my 14 day return policy. I was nervous to do this bc they weren't that bad and the phone was great.. I had no issues hardware wise. But I didn't know I could try and fix them at home with display tests... But the new one I got seems to be doing better in the battery life than my last and its great.

    I don't think it's a stuck pixel because when the image is not moving the pixel has the right color..when you slowly pan the image around and the pixel has to change color they blink up. When you stop panning the pixel has the right color. So the pixel can dispay al the colors..just some om them can't change fast enough? Maybe is had got something to do with the multitouch and/or display drivers?

    Look, I made a video of the blinking pixels..download it (about 250mb) and watch or stream if you have a fast connection.
