HTC One X update rolling out, resolves power management issue

Something neat about the Tegra 3 processor is that in addition to the four main processing cores, NVIDIA has fitted a fifth companion core on its silicon. It takes care of those mundane tasks that don't require much processing power, which reduces the processor's overall power consumption. However, it turns out that this power management system does not work properly on the international version of the HTC One X, which is equipped with a Tegra 3 chip.
a software fix for the Tegra 3 powered HTC One X is already rolling out, so if you own one, you might want to check whether it has reached you as well. Besides the power management issue, the update takes care of other problems, such as crashes and freezes. Also, the smartphone's performance has been improved overall, so it should be getting even higher benchmark results than before. Last but not least, the algorithm that adjusts the display brightness in accordance to ambient light has been tweaked.Thankfully,
The new software update bears the number 1.28.401.9 and is about 30 megabytes in size. Keep in mind, however, that although it brings the aforementioned goodies to your HTC One X, its Android version (4.0.3) will remain unchanged.

I have bought the phones below and was really looking forward to the One X coming out...I bought it the morning of its release. I am really disappointed with this phone for several reasons. 1st, for the amount of money that I paid I expect the software to be spot on. I am having the same screen banding issues explained by others and everytime I see it it drives me crazy. 2nd is this screen flex issue which is something that I see on my unit that is again very annoying. I guess for a phone that 6000 nok or $1043.00 I just simply expected more...when I took the phone back to the vendor they wanted me to ship it in to HTC for inspection and repairs. WTF, I don't pay that kind of money only to ship it back to the manufacturer for repairs and to be out of a phone for a month.. .Frustrated and It's the end of my relationship with HTC. 1. Legend 2. Desire 3. DesireHD 4. One X
