HTC One X battery life got you down? Here is a fix


Saturday 14th of April 2012 / phandroid.com
The HTC One X is a beast of a device. It is arguably the best Android smartphone around right now. But no device is perfect, and neither is this one. It seems a little issue with a large consequence slipped through HTC when making this device, and now the battery is draining faster than it should. It seems the issue is that an app called NvCPLSvc.apk was placed in the wrong directory. It should be under the systemapp directory, and it is located at system/bin, instead. The fix is relatively simple: one needs to move the file to the right place and change the file’s permissions. This is possible via ADB, and instructions can be found at XDA Developers’ site. Users have been reporting a 10%-20% increase in battery life, so this little trick might very well be worth a shot. Extra juice is always good. [Source: XDA Developers Via: Talk Android]

Contest: Win an AT&T HTC One X+


Thursday 15th of November 2012 / androidcentral.com
The HTC One X+ is one sweet machine. Check out Alex's awesome review of the unlocked version, you'll see what I mean. It takes everything we love about the original One X, cranks it to 11, and quadruples the storage so power-users have a place for their stuff. Let's recap the highlights.It's the first phone to match Jelly Bean with the Tegra 3 (the beefy 1.7GHz version), which means you not only get the battery sipping fifth companion-core to conserve battery when it can, but you get all the goodness that comes with the TegraZone -- absolutely awesome games. Console quality even.It has HTC Sense 4+ on board. I know, plenty of folks will moan and turn their nose up, but Sense 4+ offers a whole lot of functionality that looks good. With the ImageSense chip, the camera alone makes Sense 4+ and incredible way to enjoy your smartphone. And if you don't find Sense 4+ a feature worth keeping, you know it willbe easy to change.There's 64GB of on-board storage. And it's storage has none of that goofy partitioning for apps and media, so you're free to use the e

HTC One X Software Bug Drains Battery But Unofficial Fix Is Available


Saturday 14th of April 2012 / talkandroid.com
Seems HTC has made a tiny boo-boo in their One X software, which causes the battery on their new flagship to drain a bit more than it should. Luckily, XDA developer mike1986 has discovered the issue while working on a custom ROM for the device and has released a method for fixing the problem, with some users claiming an increase of 10%-20% in battery life.//Apparently, an app known as NvCPLSvc.apk was placed in the /system/bin directory on the phone, but it actually belongs in the /system/app directory. This one little slip-up caused the Tegra 3 power management software to not work properly. The fix is to move the file to the proper directory and change the file’s permissions appropriately. This can all be done using ADB to push the file to the right place on the handset, or by using a root-aware file explorer on the device to move the file and change the permissions.Or, if you don’t want to root, you can wait for HTC’s official fix, assuming HTC includes the fix with the next update.source: xda» See more articles by Ed Caggiani//

CoreControl App for HTC One X gives you more CPU control - Android Authority


Sunday 20th of May 2012 / androidauthority.com
If you’re an Android user who loves to root your phone, you’re probably well versed on the benefits of apps that allow you to control your phone’s CPU. From over and under clocking, to setting CPU governors, apps such as SetCPU give you ultimate control over the performance and power saving of your device.  Now the good folks over at XDA-Developers have developed a similar app for the quad-core HTC One X.CoreControl, created by XDA member Meltus, allows you to control how many cores in the HTC One X are active at time. Root access is of course a requirement, and the app will simply force close on an unrooted device. The app is quite useful if you aren’t getting the battery life you need, or your quad-core beast starts running a bit hot.FeaturesAs you can see in the screenshot, CoreControl gives you many options beyond just how many cores are running. Similar to SetCPU, you can set different profiles, and each profile allows you to set how many cores will run based on two factors. First, you can set a profile that will change how many cores are running based on battery level.

HTC One X ATT Version bugs thread - Page 9


Friday 29th of June 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
I'm starting to come around on this thing being a hot mess. 1. This morning after I took the phone off the charger, I never even turned the screen on, but was down to 2% battery after 4 hours. The main culprit: "dialer". While the screen was off, the phone remained "awake" that whole time. I wonder if that has something to do with being in an area with spotty coverage right now, but that is unacceptable. I've been in areas with perfectly fine coverage, and the phone still stays awake with the screen off. 2. The phone is very buggy when it comes to taking screen grabs. It used to take a try or two to get one, but recently it takes several minutes of fussing and fighting to get just one. 3. Using the power control widget, toggling the brightness setting can be extremely buggy. Press it once, nothing happens. Press it twice, nothing happens. Press it three times, nothing happens. Give up, go into settings and change it there. Several minutes later it will (sometimes) cycle through the various brightness levels from when I was pressing the widget. I love the screen a

Thoughts? SR or HTC One X


Friday 20th of April 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
Okay...a brief background. I've used a variety of smartphones over the last few years...iOS and Android. I recently decided to upgrade from my HTC Inspire on ATTWS. Thought I'd try the 4S and while okay, the draw of LTE and no SWYPE has left me wanting to get back in the Android family. Since I'm within the 30 window I can change handsets for $35 not a big deal. Question is do I go with the Samsung SR or wait for the HTC One X? Honestly, I don't see any major compelling features of the X (besides the somewhat higher PPI screen). SR will eventually get ICS so that's a wash. Beats? But the battery is sealed and that kind of worries me based on experience. What am I missing?

Q & A & thoughts from a new Android User


Monday 28th of May 2012 / androidforums.com
I'm gonna try to keep this as simple as possible without going too far overboard. I've been using iPhones (original to the 4) for the last 5 years and recently got the HTC One X, which is also my first Android device.Questions: (questions bolded for the lazy)I've tried using both the Nova Launcher and the Apex Launcher. I'm not quite sure what's the purpose. Are they faster or just about more customization? I like many of the HTC widgets and they can't be used with either launcher.Without using a launcher is it possible to do either or both of these: Change the screen animation to just sliding like in the launcher? Have a 5 x 5 grid?I use Double Twist to play my music on the go because I can double click to skip tracks through my Beats. However, I feel the battery drains way too fast when using this app. I'm used to listening to music for quite a while on my old iPhone and the battery barely moves. Is this normal?I love the screen of my phone when the brightness is 100% but I don't want to drain the battery too much so I normally keep it around 50% to 60%. Will the battery drainage
