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.
