Hey guys

A lot of you seem to have little issues with the HTC One X so I decided to make a thread where we can gather all those issues to find out if you are alone or not. Which is important to know if the problem is related to your specific device or rather some software issue.


Bugs
  • Screen stops turning orientation, even in settings menu G-sensor no longer moves. - POSSIBLE FIX : Go to taskmanager and kill all tasks - All credit and thanks go to casca
  • Calendar widget crashes if more then 20 appointments - TIP : Just remove the widget since it will keep crashing until you remove it...
  • Other HTC widgets seem to be causing lag too.
  • GPU Rendering can't be forced.
  • Live wallpaper stops on switching between screens
  • GPS issues - Possible fix : Download gps status on the market and clear the a-gps data - if this works all credit and thanks go to matmar
  • Screen starts "jumping"
  • When browsing/camera/other Sense 4.0 related tasks -> It looks like there is "noise" on the screen. Like this
  • SIM card stops working/restarts/no connection
  • The three dot menu button appears in some ICS native apps, like the YouTube app for example. - Fix for this in Dev section (requires unlock)
  • Tegra 3 games (and some others) lag, this is probably connect to some video driver bug. (Hardware is fast enouf to play it without lag)
  • Screen reactivating after using the lock-button (only 1 click ofc)
  • When opening the Clock app (just by pressing the clock on your homescreen), and moving to the Timer-tab (the one on the far right) it always adds one hour, one minute and one second to whatever time you set it to.


Issues
  • Lag in Multi-Tasking window and other elements - TIP : Go to Dev Settings - disable animations. This improved the speed a lot for me (even thou most animations keep on running, only the excessive ones get turned off) [This lag is clearly a software issue, other launchers are lag-free; should be fixed soon]
  • A lot of people are reporting signal problems. (No clue what's causing it)
  • Yellow spots on the screen

Always try to Factory Reset your device if you have a problem. Most of the time this fixes it. (Last resort)

Post your bugs and issues and if they get posted frequently I'll add them to the list.

Note to people who are planning on buying an HTC One X :
The device is still a great piece of technology, every software has bugs in it at the start! Don't get dissapointed because there are some minor glitches in the software, most of them will be fixed within 7 days from now (Update).

When i use the power button to turn off the screen it occasionaly turns on to the lockscreen after 0.5 seconds; Not always, normally when the screen was on for a longer time.

Glitches all over the place...

backlight not stable on light grey picture. (With my device i noticed it when i searched a grey pic on google, and zoomed in, the backlight flickered 1 second to "settle" after that it was good). On full birghtness i didn't had the probleme.

I am not satisfied with that phone.
It is not fast and laggy sometimes.
Multitasking button is not responding a lot.
When open some apps with black background, the resolution of the black color background sucks and shows blurry lines. It appears when adding gmail account.
I tried talking Tom and i found that it is working slower than in sensation and lags a lot.
I hate sense and i like to see AOSP Rom soon.

I'm glad I didn't buy this phone yet. Every day that goes by, I want this phone less and less seriously. I think I'm gonna wait for the Galaxy SIII. I'm sure I won't be disappointed with it. I refuse to spend money on a high end phone to see many glitches and lag at launch, even if it is fixable with ROMs and kernels, you shouldn't have to do that . Come one HTC

HTC better not play any silly games with these OTA and keep pushing the date back, this dire battery life isn't fit for purpose right now.

Yes you have be be glad because u didn't buy it.
Sense 4.0 really looks ugly except the clock and it also consumes the battery life.
The dialer also looks very bad.
Why does HTC love this old green color over the awesome blue one released as default by google?
