HTC launched the One X, Android ICS based smartphone in India in April. The handset is facing a tough competition with the launch of Samsung Galaxy S3 last month. The handset is going through a tough time with its rival. Along with this, some of the HTC One X users have reported about the Wi-Fi Death Grip issue.
The affected users claim that the Wi-Fi signal of the handset drops greatly soon as they press the back of the phone while holding it. It is worth to mention that the users of One X are facing some or the other issue with the Wi-Fi feature. Earlier, the device had some problems like fast battery draining.
An XDA Developer forum member highlighted the issue with the HTC One X Wi-Fi hardware module. Several smartphone enthusiasts and developers have pointed at the poorly installed Wi-Fi module in the smartphone. The brand has not accepted the issue publicly but a post from a representative hints that the brand is working on the issue and seeks to have more details from the users.
Constantly dropping or weak signals will consume a lot of battery power to stay connected to the network. As a result, the Wi-Fi issue affects the battery life of the device. HTC has not revealed if this issue exists all over the world or if its specific to a selected batch of devices. We can expect the company to come out with a solution in a week or two.
