One X. Is your data secure?
All my previous phones have had removeable storage by way of an SD or MicroSD card.
This means that when my phone develops a bad fault and needs to go back to the suppliers for repair, I can simply remove the data card, and all my personal data, medical records, business critical data, etc are safely kept at my place, and not exposed to some little eejit at the repair shop.
With the One X, the data is stored on 'internal' storage, and cannot be removed. What happens when a fault means I cannot boot the phone and delete the sensitive data?
There are unconfirmed suggestions that the internal storage is Linux EXT4. Is the user data encrypted on this device based on user security password, rendering it not available to prying eyes, and only available to the designated user.
Or did no-one at HTC bother thinking about this?
Could be a show stopper for many corporates, and individuals.
