HTC has confirmed that some existing models of the international version of the HTC One X — the ones sold here — may have issues with Wi-Fi. The problem wasn’t a software issue, instead the strength of the phone around the Wi-Fi connection points. When held in a certain area, the phone would see a decrease or increase in the Wi-Fi strength. HTC’s response:
“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.”
So it seems the problem has been fixed in the production process for all future HTC One X devices. If you have a current One X with this obvious problem, then be sure to get in contact with HTC or the company you bought it from.
