HTC One X for AT&T sees an over-the-air update that brings a few fixes with it
With the back and forth battle raging on between Apple and HTC of late, those lucky consumers out there sporting the AT&T version of the HTC One X should be seeing a brand spanking new software update.

Specifically, the new over-the-air update brings the smartphone to version 1.85.502.3, which was actually available in leaked form a couple weeks ago. Therefore, if you declined installing that leaked ROM from before, this official one is surely going to be an instant decision for most people. So what’s new with this one? Well, it features the following fixes:

  • Wi-Fi Connectivity Improvement - improves operation when a device leaves Wi-Fi coverage.
  • Wi-Fi Throughput (Speed Increase)
  • AT&T Address Book fixes - Contacts formatting when synced to AAB

Considering that it’s a 64.55MB download, you might want to connect via Wi-Fi so there are no issues downloading it. Still, a quick backup might also serve you well in the event that something catastrophic occurs during the installation process.

The wi-fi signal has increased significantly, I don't know about Throughput ... but I guess if the signal has increased then that would make sense... There are still other problems with the phone, they need to fix. When editing a contact that is already on phone I can't change it from a phone contact to say a Google contact or whatever other contact database I am syncing with... No voice calling with Bluetooth. I seem to get this "Loading" message on screen with screen blurred out when multitasking and after surfing the web... for at least 10-20 seconds.... nice start. The wi-fi fix is appreciated. Now I can take advantage of that new Asus Dual band N900 rt-N66u router I just got...

I wonder if the EVO LTE will get this? WiFi reception is already outstanding on the EVO, it could always be better but I haven't had any problems. It sure absoutely kills my Galaxy S II in WiFi performance. I also noticed something really nice in the EVO LTE, it has a Simultaneous Dual Band 2.4ghz / 5ghz WiFi N radio. Speeds are amazingly fast.

Before this OTA update I was averaging over 5,000 on Quadrant Standard.. Now I'm getting lower than ever scores.. & am averaging less than 4,500! C'Mon HTC.. This phone deserves better.. than to be ruined with poor updates!

I wouldn't worry about it. Those benchmarks really don't mean much anyways. Has the update affected how fast the phone feels when you use it?

Saddens me that before the update.. I scored as high as 5,444 on my Grey HTC One X.. Now after around 20 tests.. Haven't even touched the 5,000 mark :(

Not sure if it feels slower.. But disappointing to think it may be.. Before I updated I scored over 5,000 every 3 out of 5 times running the benchmark.. And the times it did score under 5,000.. It was over 4,900 the majority of the time

Just wanted to add that I did a google search to see if anyone else noticed this.. & found out someone else has in fact written about this issue as well..

I reached out to HTC by phone & their support forums on the issue.. Also looked at what changed in the Quadrant Standard scores post update.. I noticed a huge dip in the I/O part of the test. Not sure if the lower I/O scores are the sole reason for the poor benchmarks.. But I am sure it's a big part of them

My Quadrant Standard scores are continuing to get worse & worse! 4,015 yesterday.. Now today 4,013! What really irks me most.. is that HTC can't even admit the update is to blame! Maybe HTC should pay Samsung to make the updates.. Because they know how to update without ruining phones!
