Apparently, there are murmurs of discontent among certain owners of the HTC One X over its WiFi functionality. The international model of HTC‘s powerful new flagship phone has seemingly shipped with a couple of flaws (one of them being the now-fixed battery life issue), but at least now HTC have admitted that their phone isn’t quite perfect.
Apparently, some One X owners have temporarily resolved the faulty WiFi on their One X’s by squeezing the phone in the right place. This action – which is akin to banging a TV to try and get it working properly – is worrying as it suggests a hardware malfunction that can’t be fixed through an update.
Speaking with Android Central, HTC said:
“After investigating isolated reports of WiFi connectivity issues in the HTC One X, we have identified a fix that strengthens the area of the phone around the WiFi antennae connection points. While many customers have not experienced any problems with signal strength, we have taken immediate steps to implement a solution in our production process to prevent this issue from happening in the future. HTC is committed to making sure every customer has a great experience and we apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused while we conducted a thorough investigation.”
This is all well and good, but sadly it doesn’t offer a solution for the people who currently own a faulty One X. Thankfully, the phone hasn’t been around for long enough for anyone’s warranties to be void, but it’d be nice if they specifically gave a nod to those still suffering from faulty WiFi.
