Your video of the slow and laggy browser in the HTC One X is exactly what I have on my UK Orange branded phone. 聽It is infuriating and half the speed of my Desire. It is so annoying, it makes browsing on my One X painful! I am even considering returning the phone. How on earth they can release a phone which cant even do one of the most used and basic features, browsing… is beyond me. I’ve tried other browsers on the phone, and it’s basically the same story, more or less. 聽Please, can you push this issue and try and get some comment from HTC? 聽We need to get this picked up by all the website reviewers. 聽If it starts getting bad press, that is the only way HTC will take notice…why none of them have mentioned it so far is beyond me…
Giles, I agree with you. 聽The fact that we are even talking about lag on a quad-core smartphone is ridiculous. 聽Add to that, the fact the browser on the dual-core Galaxy Nexus runs much better, and that makes it all the more absurd. 聽We’ve reached out to HTC for comment on the issue, but have received no response from them. 聽It would seem they may be content with ignoring the browser lag issue until it gains more publicity. 聽Of course the best way to make change, is to vote with your wallet. 聽So if you are truly dissatisfied with your HTC One X experience thus far, you may want to consider returning it.
I am confused. Which should I go for, HTC One X or Samsung Galaxy Note?
Harshita, that is a tough question indeed. 聽If everything were working correctly on the HTC One X, I’d recommend going with that in a heartbeat. 聽Unfortunately, right now the One X has issues with the browser lagging and the launcher restarting. 聽Of course these are issues that could easily be corrected with a software update, however thus far HTC has not acknowledged the problems. 聽As of today, the Galaxy Note is a more stable smartphone, and will run better than the One X. 聽The One X is more future proof than the Galaxy Note, but at the cost of fluidity and good performance today. 聽If you don’t mind waiting on an update for your phone to not have lag and launcher restart issues, then go with the One X. 聽If you’d prefer to have a phone that operates correctly today, then I’d recommend going with the Galaxy Note.
