They're minor but it means their two seperate phones; not the same phone with a different SoC. The headphone jack shot means the PCB is different between them. So their cousins, not brother and sister. This also means that while all the functionality may be the same some of what's driving it will be different. Maybe it'll be noticable, maybe it won't.
I would have to agree with you. I think its reasonable to assume that HTC monitors these forums, and I think they are actually listening. Perhaps we are lucky with the Rogers (AT&T) ONE X because HTC may have heard of certain issues and corrected them with this release. Who knows?
I think it's way too soon for mid-course corrections. Both phones were in production at the same time.
If you boil down all the chatter on the international forum there's really three issues: 1) yellow vs. white displays, 2) funkiness with what's being displayed, and 3) battery life. Unless the display's different the XL is likely to have number 1. I'm guessing it'll be better at number 3 but that'll be offset (and maybe made worse) by using LTE. Number 2 is really the biggest issue and I'm starting to believe it's related to Teg3.
I've followed the Asus Prime since it launched and it had the same problem where individual devices may or not have experienced display issues; all produced at the same time using the same h/w and s/w. So individual Teg3 chips could be out of spec or something strange is going on with individual chips graphics support. If you guys have none of the same display problems that helps support the theory. And if it is true, both Asus and HTC are innocent of all but deciding to trust Nvidia.
I would like to add something concerning LTE. Yes, it applies a great deal to me, but it may help others to decide if they actually need/want LTE.
My home Wifi, which is high speed, provides me with a speed of about 20Mbps download and ONLY 1Mbps upload. This is quite consistent.
As I said in an earlier post, I was visiting my mother this morning, who does not have Internet access. Hey, she doesn't even have a computer. By tethering my Rogers unit through my laptop, which was incredibly easy, I now have super high speed Internet access wherever I go ... as long as there's LTE available, and Rogers is quickly flooding Canada with LTE.
So, in fact, by using my LTE signal, I now have an even faster connection on my PC than if I was at home using my high speed Wifi connection.
My two cents worth.
