The release of the HTC One X has been received with an overwhelmingly positive response from the Android community. With the 4.7″ Nvidia quad-core Tegra 3 powered device, HTC has certainly made its intentions clear, aiming for the top in the race for the title of best Android device of the year.

But, as with any new release, the One X has not been without its issues, with a lot of users complaining about:

  • Poor battery life
  • Device overheating
  • Issues with using hardware buttons instead of the Android 4.0 recommended on-screen keys
  • Auto-brightness setting issues
  • Icons and text appearing glitchy in the notification bar

As a testament to the importance of a successful One X debut, HTC is already pushing an OTA update to fix this software issues. The official 30 MB download can be downloaded by going to “Software Updates” in the About section in the Settings menu, which will bring the version number of the device to 1.28.409.1. This is just a software tweak and does not overwrite any data.

Users are reporting that the update brings an improvement in battery life, along with fixing auto-brightness issues and on-screen menu problems. According to some benchmark tests, there is an overall performance enhancement, as well. It’s good to see HTC sticking to its promise to listen to customers and provide timely updates and fixes to its devices.

    I have just bought HTC one x , it. is definitely a good phone but battery life is really very poor and it heats very quickly from the upper portion near camera. I have used many phones before but this is the first one which has a heating problem and it has a very poor battery life. My phone is up to date but still I have these issues, hope HTC is doing something to fix this.

    I bought this phone on May 2nd and the screen flickering issue was there which is a hardware problem and i got the replacement for the same. Unfortunately the second phone also has got the same problem. So i replaced it again. Now the problem with the 3rd phone is heating up. If you switch on the data or charge the phone it is heating up like hell. I hate this phone for all these issues. But the features camera all are really awesome!!!

  • ds1965

    My HTC one x has microphone problems, when I make a call I can hardly be heard unless I use the headset. I believe an upgrade caused the problem as I don’t recall anyone saying they couldn’t hear me when I originally took possession of the phone

    One week ago I got a new HTC One X. Today when I put it on charging, after an hour of charging it switched off itself and when I touched it I felt that it was overheated. I pushed the power button for 10 secs and the three lights below the screen started blinking. I was able to turn my phone back on.

    Should I be worried about the situation? Is it a common problem?
