All HTC One X Problems rolled into one, including screen, battery and Wi-Fi issues. But don't be disgruntled - it's still one heck of a handset

The HTC One X is bold and beautiful but it hasn’t been without its problems. As with any new invention, design and technical flaws come with the territory.

When the One X launched in the UK last month, the Android army threw a major strop after discovering a series of glitches that affected the handset's battery life, screen and performance.

We've already rounded up the new iPad 3 problems, so now we've shifted our attention to HTC's latest smartphone.

 

HTC One X Problems: Screen

As mentioned in our review, the HTC One X dons a remarkable 4.7-inch high resolution display, making it ideal for taking snaps and watching video.

However, it has been reported that the One X’s screen build is somewhat flawed – although this could purely be a problem with the first batch of handsets sent to technology journalists for review.

Natasha Lomas, a writer for the technology website CNET who discovered the flaw, explains the problem.  

She wrote: “While testing the HTC One X, I found that pushing on the edges of the curved screen causes the display to flex and patches of discoloured pixels track your finger movements.

“It is also sometimes possible to accidentally activate something on screen by mistake, simply by gripping the phone's edges tightly.”

Daniel Hundt, creative director at HTC’s design consultancy One & Co, told Lomas: "I was not aware of that -- maybe this [review unit] is not a shipping build. We would never let that ship."

Although no official statement has been made, it's likely that HTC will fix the problem when rolling out their next batch of One X handsets.
