HTC says that it has no plans on the table to disseminate a firmware update that would specifically improve the life of the battery on the HTC One X (1800mAh), HTC One S (1650mAh) or the HTC One V (1500mAh). The high-end flagship HTC One X has a power management problem as we told you. A developer of a custom ROM for the device blames the problem on a misplaced NVIDIA app which was installed in the wrong folder. The problem is draining 10% to 20% of the unit's battery life when users need every second that they can squeeze out of the cell. The good news is that HTC has released a software fix that will eliminate the power management problem and restore the 10% to 20% battery life that had been lost. The update also repairs bugs that caused the phone to reboot or freeze.
So what would you rather see in your smartphone, a thin sleek design that turns heads or a larger battery that turns on at the end of the day after constantly being in use during working hours. Drop us a comment in the box below.
