Do some Motorola Droid X phones have defective screens?

Just days after the official launch of the Motorola Droid X for Verizon, unsettling news comes from some of the lucky owners of the first batch of the smartphones.

Or perhaps not so lucky, as it seems that there are problems with the Droid X’s screen. Symptoms include rapid flickering and vertical bands showing up on part of the screen or its entirety.

This may be electrical, it may be related to the graphics processing, or (in the best case) might just be a software issue.

Several users have claimed that they had got replacement phones after taking the bad Droids back to Verizon, and even that they were told these are common issues with the batch sold on launch day. This may mean that the problems are limited to a specific batch of handsets, but nothing is sure yet.

It’s a shame that such issues plague Verizon’s top smartphone so soon after its release, and we hope to hear official explanations soon.
