It may have been released only recently, but HTC‘s powerful new flagship phone, the One X, already has its fair share of onboard problems. Among these is the battery life, which has been depleting at rates faster than it should be. Users will no doubt have been hoping that the 30MB software update released today would resolve this issue, and it looks like their prayers have been answered.
For owners of non-network-branded One X’s (those attached to networks will have to wait a little bit longer), going into ‘Settings > About > Software Updates’ on your phone will activate the update. Aside from boosting battery life by 20-30%, other fixes include a more reasonable auto-brightness function. Also, the renegade on-screen menu key that appeared in certain Google apps – such as Youtube – has been removed.
It’s good to see that HTC have reacted fairly swiftly to user complaints and the community’s hassling. Maybe Samsung could learn a thing or two from them after the fiasco over the sluggish release of ICS for their Galaxy S2.
