Default [Q] Wi Fi signal is weak, but gets stronger if I press on the phone!

Hi Everyone,

I am experiencing very weak Wi-Fi signal strength with my One X. Here is a YouTube video which describes the issue that I am having -

Can this issue be fixed with a firmware update or does the hardware need to be fixed?

My firmware, and ROM information can be seen in this post that I made concerning my car stereo and mass storage mode -

Any advice here will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

If your phone is on warranty might as well send it back since you have tried the 'Hardware Wi-Fi test' (applying pressure to see if Wifi signal improves).

Me? I unlocked my bootloader on the first day and therefore voided my warrenty, opened my phone manually and fixed it myself by applying some foil on the Wifi pins.

PS. there are heaps of threads on this, search and you shall find :P
