Common HTC One X problems

If you are not aware of this, HTC One X was given second place for the best phone of 2013 by EISA. At that time iPhone 5 was not launched however without a shadow of doubt the HTC One X is one of the best phones available on the market as it has a great display.

 

Just like any other smartphone you will now and again encounter a few issues that can easily be fixed without having to pay a heavy price for a replacement.

HTC One X not charging

Many customers over the few months have reported that your handset has suddenly stopped charging. In some cases customers have also suggested their handset doesn’t recognise the charger. If you have ever encountered this then there are two easy solutions that you can try.

First solution, it’s important to have a look at the port that is used to plug the charger in as it could be full of dirt. Over some time the port can collect dust as many people put their smartphones their pocket or in a purse. To fix this problem, you can simply use a spray that forces the dust out of the port to unclog the port.

Second Solution, sometimes the charger itself is found to be faulty as it doesn’t fight tightly enough in the port. This usually happens when a user is on the phone while it is charging or placing the handset at an uneven angle whilst charging. It is worth trying to use another charge as it can usually solve this issue before deciding to invest into a new handset.

HTC One X smashed screen

There are times where you dread the fact of dropping your HTC One X on the floor, if you do then you are very unlucky and in some cases out of luck. The warrant for your phone would not cover this and would you most likely be paying for a new display. If you try to contact the official HTC then you would be paying a hefty price. A cheaper option would be to order a new display from the internet and get it changed from your local mobile shop but it is very important to purchase the original equipment manufacturer parts.

It is also important to remember that the One X features a LCD2 display; if you mistakenly have damaged your digitiser then you would need to invest into a full screen. It’s very difficult to put together the screen and the digitiser, so you would need to purchase the full assembly.

HTC One X WIFI problems

One of the most usual problems that you are likely to encounter using the HTC One X is the WiFi connectivity. Many customers had complained that their handset is unable to connect to the WiFi, it was only until HTC acknowledged this issue and provided a fix on their website. Unfortunately HTC will not replace your phone for a new one if you discover that your One X has a reduced WiFi performance which typically appears in the Tegra 3 models.

If you wish to monitor the performance of your WiFi you can simply press the casing between the camera and the volume buttons and if you discover that the signal has increased then you have a hardware problem and no software would fix this issue. You could also simply stand 2 to 3 feet away from your router, if you are still experiencing bad WiFi signal then there is an issue with your WiFi.

The best option to fix this issue would be to consult with your local mobile phone shop or alternatively contact the official HTC service regarding this issue as they would be able to investigate further for you.

Mobile Phone Review: HTC One SV

HTC has launched its new handset, HTC One SV. Well it’s not exactly a new handset as it is an upgraded version of the HTC One S which was launched back in 2012 at Mobile World Congress. The new One SV is slightly different as it has a new chassis and to some extent different specifications such as 4G capabilities.

HTC One SV is currently available for about £315 SIM-free which is almost the same price as the One S. If you are looking for a contract deals for the One SV, you would be looking to pay around £36 per month on a two year contract which is slight more expensive if you select the UK’s only 4G network EE.

HTC’s new handset is certainly placing its firm foot to compete with the Google Nexus 4, Sony Xperia T, and 4G enabled Nokia Lumia 820.

So let’s kick off with the framework HTC has used, it is out with the aluminium body and in with the plastic chasing which weighs at 122g, slightly heavier than the One S as HTC decided to go from 7.8mm to almost 9.2mm width.

The handset itself is not too big and neither not to small as it centred around a 4.3inch screen which is good news as there is still hope left for small phones.

Another advantage is the removable back cover which give you access to the battery, microSIM and microSD slot. As standard the phone comes with 8GB of storage built in and customers have a choice to select up to 32GB of storage and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich installed onto the handset.

Continuing with the internal specification, the One SV comes with a dual-core processor, 480 x 800 pixel screen, 5 megapixel camera also incorporated and an 1800mAh battery to give you a long lasting experience.

Quick 6 fixes to common Android problems

 

Generally Android phones are designed in a way that is easy to use and problem-free, but every once in a while you will find something goes wrong. I have listed below quick 9 fixes to solve your problems.

The Android Market won’t load?

To fix this issue, simply go to Settings / Applications / Manage Applications and find the Android Market app. At this stage you will see a ‘Clear Cache’ button. Tap the button and the cache should display 0.00KB. The Android Market app should start working, it is also a good idea to turn the handset off and on just to make sure the OS has completed this task.

 

My text messages are being sent to the wrong people?

Few months back, Google admitted that there was a bug regarding the text messages. If you are still experiencing this problem, you should check to see if any updates are available for your phone. They are usually downloadable from the Android Market as not everyone receives a system update notifications.

 

How can I find out if an app is safe?

When you install an app you will be prompted a screen showing the description of the app and what it proposes to do on your phone. It’s important to read through the description in order to have a better understanding, for example, you wouldn’t expect a sports app to need access to your contacts. It is also a good idea to read through the comments to see if the app is something that should avoid.

 

 

Wi-Fi not connecting?

There have been many reports of Wi-Fi connection problems under Android, however the following solutions generally fixes this issue. It is important to turn off the Wi-Fi on your handset and then turn it back on. If you are still experiencing an issue with the Wi-Fi connection, then go to the Wi-Fi settings and choose ‘Forget this network” for your current connection. You will have to set up your Wi-Fi connection again, although this usually solves the problem.

 

I get “This video cannot be displayed” error

Occasionally a video taken on an Android smartphone cannot be displayed in the gallery immediately. As there is no real reason for this problem, the solution is to take out the battery for a few seconds, place them back in and the video will play. It is just one of those that somehow it resolves the issue.

 

I can’t connect to my desktop?

If you have ever tried to connect your Android phone to your desktop on its first connection it could refuse to connect. It is ideal to check your instructions and if needed go to the official site for the phone so that you can download the required drivers for a successful connection. Not all phones come with required drivers so occasionally you would need to search the internet.

HTC M7 leaked

Unconfirmed HTC M7 has gained a few headlines of late. The image above is the render image that was leaked onto the internet. The snap shot was taken from a “short animation clip instructing new owners on first-time SIM card installation,” according to Unwired View. The information has come from a trusted source with access to an early version of the firmware, the site states.

From further investigation you can easily confirm that the lack of branding and screen borders is not the finished design, unless HTC is attempting to go for a new minimalist design.

We may see the M7 to be revealed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February. Rumours suggest it is HTC’s new flagship, taking over from the One X, with a 4.7-inch HD display and a generous 1.7GHz quad-core processor.

It is said the screen would be much sharper than traditional smartphones as it would have a higher pixel per inch density than the iPhone 5. Also sources have suggested that the device would have a 13-megapixel camera incorporated with a new sensor capable of super slow-motion and video HDR, too.

It is also expected to have the latest Jelly bean version of Android to be rolled out onto the M7. The handset was allegedly to be unveiled at CES, but that didn’t happen.

‘Youm’, Samsung’s flexible OLED prototype phone

During CES, Samsung announced that it will brand its new series of flexible OLED display Youm. During the brief glimpse of the prototype handset, we saw it had a screen that falls off towards the rear edge of the device on the right side.

 

However Samsung have not yet decided what to do with this extra curved screen, although at this moment of time the phone displays notifications along the edge. The idea behind this is to allow users to read text messages and other notifications from the side of the device even if you have a case covering the screen.

As expected, Samsung were very secretive to give us any specifications on the prototype. But what was revealed by them was that the screen is about five inches across, with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of approximately 720p. Samsung also explained that the prototype isn’t truly a phone as it lacks a radio, operating system, camera and most any other features you would typically find in a phone.

Instead, in its current form, the prototype is only able to provide a touch-capable digital picture frame that uses a low-power processor to cycle through images of a mocked-up UI. Overall the phone does feel like a prototype due to the less pleasing plastic used and it also felt completely hollow within. We’re sceptical of the usability of a flexible display on a phone, but it certainly standards out from the crowd.

Its estimated 400,000 Nexus 4 sold so far

The nexus 4 remaining ever so popular especially among Android fans despite its lack of LTE, the Android smartphone continuously remains sold out in the Google Play store, but just how popular is it?

According to a group of Android enthusiasts and lucky Nexus 4 owners, only a few handsets were made available in the late 2012, leading to a huge rush when it went on sale.

 

The group used serial numbers to calculate how many Google has managed to sell by using the IMEI number on Nexus 4 handsets and LG mobile site.

By using this system users were able to identify roughly how many devices were being produced per month (70,000 in October, 90,000 in November, and 210,000 in December) and also learning that many phones were being made after an order was placed. One user discovered through an LG help page that lists the exact day of manufacture, that their handset was manufactured three days after being ordered and then taken a week to ship it to Kentucky from Korea.

The mobile world went slightly crazy for the Nexus 4 when it went on sale in November, with the first batch selling out in less than half an hour.

In December a second batch was then available which took slightly longer to shift, but predictably 24 hours later it was sold out again and the Nexus 4 still remains unavailable on Google’s site for the time being.

While this calculation would explain why it is so hard to get hold of the Nexus 4, carriers and retailers still have devices in stock unsold, while equally some Google Play customers are still waiting for their Nexus 4s to arrive we can’t be sure when the third batch will be made available for those who have waited over three months. But one thing you can be certain about is that the stock will not last long as predicated.

Confirmed official pictures of the new Sony Xperia Z and ZL

Recently Sony indicated to launch a new 5-inch 1080p smartphone at CES, with the latest evidence Showed up on Sony’s website. The Japanese tech giant revealed Xperia Z and the Xperia ZL, codenamed Yuga and Odin respectively.

 

 

Sony struggled to keep its plans secret, with plenty of rumours surrounding the flagship phones. However the speculations regarding both handsets have been put to bed as they have confirmed this by revealing press shots.

With the confirmed photos there was no additional information available, although it is rumoured for both handsets to include a 1.5GHz snapdragon quad-core with Adreno 320 graphics, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera.

The Xperia Z and Xperia ZL will offer a monolithic slab as predictable, although the ZL looks strangely shorter than the Xperia Z in the photo, bearing in mind that both handsets will offer a 5-inch display. Also, the front camera on the ZL looks to be positioned in the lower right corner.

With regards to the design of the handsets, it seems like Sony has finally to jump in with the overwhelmingly popular trend in the smartphone design at the present time, as the front side of both handsets includes a huge screen and little else.

We’ll probably learn a lot more about Sony’s new flagship handsets at CES trade show, which is held in Las Vegas from the 8th-11th January.

LG sells 10m L-Series phones

LG has recently announced that they had sold over 10 million units of LG’s L-series range of smartphones. The Korean based company sent out a press release announcing this milestone as it’s certainly a surprising achievement.

 

LG’s L-Series includes the Optimus L3, L5, L7 and L9, all of which did not exactly meet our expectations. However it may not be anywhere near the 30 million units Samsung had achieved with its Galaxy S3, but 10 million handsets sold is not something to ignore.

LG has described the milestone as “modest”, as if it was expected to sell far more in an attempt to take the opportunity to scare off its competition.

“Distinctive” styling not “me too” are the words used to describe its handsets compared to its competitors. This comment could be a hint to the fact Samsung was sued for infringing Apple’s patents. However LG went on further to say

“This milestone demonstrates the importance of delivering smartphones with stylish design, comparative size of display and enhanced UX features,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, LG Mobile Communication Company’s president and CEO.

“Whereas other manufacturers are putting all their eggs into a one-size-fits-all phone, our strategy is to develop mobile products for all types of customers according to their individual needs and lifestyles.”

Was that a reference to Apple’s iPhone 5? It may well have been.

Sky Go for Google Nexus 7 and other Android devices

Early Christmas present for a few more Android owners as Sky Go will now work with the other range of devices such as the Google Nexus 4 and 7.

The app is available for download from Google Play which also supports the latest Jelly Bean Android 4.1 and 4.2 as long as you’re running the OS on a compatible handset.

In the early November it was announced that the HTC One Series is first in line with the HTC Desire X, HTC One X, HTC One XL, HTC One S, HTC One V are all now capable to run the app.

The fresh updates has allowed many other handsets Sky-Go compatible such as, the Google Nexus 4, Google Nexus 7, Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE, Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy Note 2, Sony Xperia S, Sony Xperia T and the LG 4x hd.

Many of the Android owners were very annoyed to realise that the Sky Go app only worked with a handful of HTC and Samsung handsets could run the mobile TV app while all iOS corresponding handsets were happily streaming away.

At the moment of time we are yet to receive any confirmation regarding the Sky Go app to work with Windows Phone or Surface. However Sky are waiting for the devices to “reach scale” which is business speak for “become popular” before they roll out a compatible app.

SwiftKey Flow to rival Android Keyboard

Swiping seems the way forward for the new tapping when it comes to smartphone keyboards as top selling Android keyboard app, SwiftKey Flow, is looking to rival the Android’s version. The Swype system has been available for some time as recently Google introduced its own version with the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update.

This feature looks promising as it has become a popular method for users to input text via continuous gliding gestures.

What makes SwiftKey Flow a little different to Androids keyboard is the traditional language technology that’s been integrated from the original SwiftKey Keyboard app. In essence the new version will not only give flexibility to select through the traditional tapping style and the Swype system, but also as an added bonus you get the “intelligent” word corrections and predictions which helped SwiftKey gain its popularity.

At the moment the current version offers you to slide your fingers between the letters for a particular word, but you still have to lift off to start a new word, SwiftKey Flow has resolved the problem.

The “Flow through Space” also is featured within the app, this means you need to just slide your digit over the space bar and then go straight onto the next word with having to remove your finger from the screen. The idea is to increase the speed of typing messages.

Currently the system is still in works, we hope it’s enough time to continue to strength the accuracy and next letter/word prediction as there were few speculations that it struggled a little with longer letters.

What are your thoughts? Is SwiftKey Flow the best swipe-typing choice available? It’s hard to say as Android would try to match SwiftKey’s capabilities. Head over to Play Store if you would like to test the current version.
