HTC One X: Now it's hit with messaging problem

HTC One X: Now it's hit with messaging problemYou have got to feel a little bit sorry for poor old HTC right now. Its flagship HTC One X has clearly had a lot of work put into it. You can tell its tried really hard to get it right.

And yet, more often than not, we are seeing stories of various complaints with everything from a creaky screen to poor battery to now a software glitch which means users don't get alerted to new messages.

In fact, not only do they not get a notification at the top of the screen, but they also don't get a badge on the messaging icon which means that unread items stay that way until the user happens to open the messaging app.

To be fair to HTC, it has admitted the bug exists and points out that only a small number of handsets are affected. Which seems odd as this must surely mean that said small number have a different software variant installed. And, the Taiwanese manufacturer has promised that it'll roll out an update as soon as possible.

We can't knock them too much as we must point out that HTC is one of the more adventurous Android lot - just look at how quickly it got on board with Ice Cream Sandwich as other manufacturers dithered about.

We just hope HTC manages to sort this issue quickly. The adverse press won't be doing it any favours - especially with its main Android competitor, Samsung, having now unveiled its flagship Galaxy S3. And those pretty unimpressive sales so far. Ouchy.

Not happening on the one I have been using; but that One was absolute crap when switching between 3G, WiFi and back... When that happened - in some apps at least -, it'd lead to a complete freezerino. Nudding. Only a full power-off reboot would unfreeze it. Same when one app would update (say Tweetcaster) while the email client decided to update in the background. Total breakdown for about 2 minutes. No matter how good the signal. Glad I didn't buy the One X; really not impressed by it in any way - camera aside.

I couldn't agree more, the One X just didn't feel special to me. I'd sold it within 24 hours of owning it.

Had some freezing exiting certain application. Did an update last week and it's sorted lots of other bugs too. It feels great now, glad I persevered. Still think quad core is unnecessary but I was offered either One S or One X on same contract. Seemed like a no brainer, but wondered for a while!

Yes, i should say - the one I used was O2 branded, and they still haven't rolled out any fixes here in Ireland. The One S I had was excellent. Would recommend it at the right price.
