HTC confirms One X WiFi issues are tied to hardware.
The HTC One series has been a great addition to the HTC smartphone lineup with all variants of the series receiving a lot of positive feedback. The One X is the flagship version and while overall it is a great phone, there has been a growing outcry regarding WiFi connectivity. It seems that many users are experiencing issues with the phone establishing or maintaining a WiFi connection.
HTC attempted to resolve the issue using a software update, but the issue persists. XDA forum members have noticed that the signal appears to strengthen when squeezing the phone. HTC has now confirmed that this is a hardware issue and has indicated that they have “identified a fix that strengthens the area of the phone around the WiFi antennae connection points.” They also announced that they have “taken immediate steps to implement a solution in our production process to prevent this issue from happening in the future.” It should be noted that HTC believes this only affects a small number of One X owners.
