HTC has been rocked by a pair of reports alleging major design flaws with the new flagship HTC One X and One S Android handsets.
The Android 4.0 devices, unveiled at MWC in February have earned rave reviews, but both may be undermined by issues flagged-up by both critics and users.
CNET reckons the quad-core HTC One X's curved-edged design is causing an unwanted flexible screen issue, which leads to distortion and discolouration of the display when pressed.
HTC says the issue, which can also activate items on the display just by tightly gripping the device, "would never be allowed to slip" and may not be present in the final consumer build.
Meanwhile, several HTC One S users are reporting the paint-job on their new quad-core device is cracking and chipping, less than a week after picking up the device.
This is despite HTC's boasts of a "microarc oxidation (MAO) process", which the company claimed would keep your device looking pristine long into its lifespan.
While claiming users would not need a case to keep the handset looking good, it also says the casing is "four times harder than anodized aluminum, enabling the HTC One S to look great over time."
HTC has told TheVerge it has become aware of the issue and is investigating the reports. We'll keep you posted.
