It’s no secret that HTC One X smartphone has a well-known issue with keeping a WiFi signal. While many of the One X owners out here have complained and subsequently gotten a seemingly reliable fix, owners elsewhere in the world are still having to deal with this nagging and rather irritating glitch. HTC Europe has (finally) taken notice and given out an official statement for owners of the HTC One X smartphone:
“After investigating isolated reports of WiFi connectivity issues in the HTC One X, we have identified a fix that strengthens the area of the phone around the WiFi antennae connection points. While many customers have not experienced any problems with signal strength, we have taken immediate steps to implement a solution in our production process to prevent this issue from happening in the future. HTC is committed to making sure every customer has a great experience and we apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused while we conducted a thorough investigation.”
Looks like HTC is now fully aware and is taking the necessary steps to help the minority of owners who seem to be the most affected by the glitch, except there’s a teeny catch. According to Android Central, an HTC spokesman has mentioned that only the Tegra 3 variants of the smartphone are affected by the WiFi defect. That means if you own the AT&T HTC One X or the HTC One XL versions, you should not be affected by any sort of WiFi issue. On the other hand— another thing to mention is that it seems that many of the Tegra 3 versions of the smartphone out there seem to be working fine, so it’s not quite certain as to how many phones out there are truly affected. One thing’s for sure though— if you have either version of the smartphone and you suspect you might be affected by this WiFi bug, contact HTC customer service immediately and hopefully everything will be resolved for you. In the meantime, we’ll continue to keep you all posted with any further developments regarding this developing saga.
