RE: HTC One X - Initial impressions

I wouldn't worry too much about the heat. My Desire gets hot too. Never been a problem.

I have been fortunate to get my hands on a Samsung GS3 for the weekend and I'm very impressed. The whole thing feels very slick and smooth.

Minor gripe is the positioning of the volume key meant I was often altering the notification volume when trying to lock the phone (they're opposite one another). All in all though, it's the first time in a long while that I'm considering ditching iOS. 

Intersting...out of curiosity, I find that alot of samsung screens have an almost blue hint to the screen. Have you noticed anything like this on the S3?

Not that I noticed. It has a number of "modes" for the screen (dynamic etc) that change the colour saturation. It's had to go back now sadly

My HTC Sensation sometimes gets hot even when it's in pocket & not in use, draining the battery entirely in 15-30 minutes in the process. Getting hot while charging isn't a problem, though.

Max, it's slightly different on Sense.

Read what I said earlier...

Also, here I did some screen shots.

fr0g, thanks for that, but whether I start typing or hold down the screen in the text area, it makes no difference, no options to change anything pop up. In software information

Android version 4.0.3

HTC Sense version 4.0

Software number 1.28.206.9

HTC SDK API Level 4.12

 

Whether that's of any relevance or not I don't know, but according to the phone, it's all up to date.

He didn't say they'd pop up, he said you had to pull down the notification bar at the top of the screen whilst in a text entry field.

RE: HTC One X - Initial impressions

Also, looks like you are a couple of software releases behind.

I'm on 1.29.401.11

Yes, I believe 1.29 has some important bug fixes too.

RE: HTC One X - Initial impressions - GOOD NEWS

Great news One X owners.

HTC have confirmed that 1.29.xxx.11 has now resolved the flicker.

Many thanks to the helpful folk at xda.developers.

RE: HTC One X - Initial impressions

Good to see the issue has been resolved.

I don't know why helplines still play numb when people ring-up with known problems.
The damage-limitation technique of just pretending it's an isolated incident isn't effective in an internet-enabled world, where a quick Googling reveals that loads of people have reported the same problem.
They need to understand that most customers wouldn't respect them any less if they just came clean and said whoopsie yes we know there a software problem and we're working on it. In fact, quite the opposite would be true.

Couldn't agree more.

I returned my One X, as to me denying the problem implied they were not going to work on it. If they had told me an update was on the way I would have stuck with it.

I may re-purchase one, though it depends on how impressed I am with the S3.

At the time they may not have known if a software update would fix it, it may have been a hardware issue, so telling you that could have been something they couldn't deliver on, which would probably have left you even more annoyed.

Yes perhaps, but there response was that it was the first time the issue had been reported to HTC....and that was on my 3rd phone with the same issue.
Just a "we are working on it" would have been nice.

RE: HTC One X - Initial impressions

I must admit though, they've done a good job of catching up with the customer care now.

still considering another. i'm just deciding on whether I can tolerate the S3's typically blue tinted screen and over saturated colours, or whether the screen controls will keep this under control.
