No their quality is not decreasing. This happens all the time. Look when you mass produce something there are always some bad units that make it to the public. This happens to ALL OEM's. HTC has a history of making very HIGH quality devices, look at the reviews, they say HTC build quality is TOP NOTCH!

You & I really don't know that for sure. Also based on this article HTC is acknowledging the issue. I quote: "While many customers have not experienced any problems with signal strength, we have taken immediate steps to implement a solution in our production process to prevent this issue from happening in the future". At least they are admitting some problem unlike Apple who said that people are holding their products wrong. Based on that how do you know it's "a large no"? Like I said you and I don't know for sure so let's not pretend to know the answer here when we clearly don't. HTC makes an ABOVE average phone & their people are working very hard to fix this issue in the future. HTC’s quality is not decreasing as you said before.

One X has unibody quilaity is un-arguably best...and display...I'll just won't miss SAMOLED :) Performance wise...on daily usage...I don't see any diff from my sgs2 (with exynos)...I thought my sgs2 running aokp has best sound quality...but beats audio can reproducce low sounds very effectively...its pleasure to listen music.

Have you seen the EVO 4G LTE aluminum unibody? That phone screams quality, easily the best built phone in recent memory. The One X is no slouch either. HTC has always built quality phones, to the point where they wonte enter the low end market in China due to the sacrifise

Maybe people should buy better phones next time. I find fruit to be more favorable than green with bugs.

The most recent OTA Update from HTC to try & fix the issue had a negative effect on the phone's performance as well.. HTC has yet to acknowledge this..

Wow seriously.. thumbs down for trying to make it known that mine.. as well as others who installed the recent OTA Update from HTC for the One X impacted the performance???

Before the OTA Update I would score over 5,000 regularly.. Now.. after more than 60 tests ran on a full charge on Quadrant Standard I can't score a single 5,000 to save my life! I'm not the only one who has noticed this!

I love the phone regardless.. But a lot of times.. Updates can cause issues where before.. there were none!

I was waiting months to get a HTC One X, but before they released I switched to Verizon and bought a used Rezound. I know I made the right choice, specs and phone display sound and look great, but no true multitasking and antenna problems.... what else?

Kinda late with this post.. but the issue I complained about seems to have been fixed with the most recent OTA update. I've scored higher than ever on Quadrant Standard now with a 5643.. Pretty damn amazing for a dual core phone :)
