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 guess I'm lucky concerning the yellow display issue as both units, the Rogers and the International, do not experience this issue. I can also attest to the "funkiness" with the international display. As I mentioned in an earlier post, when I first got the international unit with the stock ROM (even though it was rooted), there were numerous bugs, and the display was one of them.

Sounds logical. It may simply be a case of serendipity. Perhaps the addition of LTE forced HTC to make a small adjustment with the internal space, and the result was a different camera cover.

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.

Peter
In regards to your wifi, my One XL is dropping wifi signal constantly and falling back to 4G, my international One X has no such problems. I have both a 5G router and a netgear 3500L running newest tomato firmware. The phone intermittantly seems to sleep wifi and then reinitialize it... I have tried always on wifi setting to no avail, wondering if you or anyone else with a One XL is experiencing this problem?

Peter, do you think the same cases will be able to fit both phones? I want to order a cheap tpu case for my phone so it's safe until I find something better.

All I know is, there's going to be a tegra 3+ with LTE in this Q3 year with LTE its a rumor so I'm waiting for an official announcement. By the tegra team.

Darn... got my 1X and settings menu looks yellow...

Don't have any other unit to compare to. Will post pics a little later.

Pete... could you kindly take some pics of both your screens using a LCD testing app like display tester?

Thanks

Absolutely! The physical differences are so small, cases should fit both phones.
