HTC One X owners holding out for a firmware update to boost their phone’s longevity have been left disappointed, after the carrier confirmed it has plans to make the patch available.
Problems with the phone’s battery life came to light a matter of weeks after it landed on shop shelves. Handsets affected were those that shipped with version 1.26 of HTC’s firmware.
To tackle the problem, HTC pushed out version 1.28 last week. As well as including some very welcome performance enhancements, the update increases battery life by 20 per cent.
However, a tweet from Three’s Twitter reps has today confirmed that HTC One X on the network won’t be joining the party.
Responding to a piqued customer affected by the battery-life glitch, Three stated: “Sorry to hear your battery life is poor, we're not releasing this update as we're working on the next one.”
Owners of unbranded HTC One X phones bought off-contract can grab the update over the air now. If you’re a Three customer, let’s just hope that the second upgrade addresses the problem.
