HTC One X Camera issues
HTC (Taiwan based company) introduced its new series of smart phone named “ONE” and HTC One x is one of this series. This phone has 8 MP camera with a dedicated special photography chip. User can also make video at 1080P. Phone has a secondary camera of 1.3 MP. This is a good camera for smart phone.
But recently, some users of Mobilissimo discovered a problem with this phone’s camera.
Problem is that, When user opens camera app, sometimes strange green lines appear on one side of screen, these lines don’t affect the picture quality but it is very disturbing for user to see such lines on a 750$ worth smart phone.
As a solution HTC considered the matter and after analyzing the issue, launched an update OTA 1.28.401.9. HTC claims that this update not only solve the about issue but also fixes date issues of colander and screen glitches.
Some people are saying that this is a hardware issue and cannot be solved by software update. We have to wait to see if the problem solves after update.
Another problem observed by some user is the view finder of One X. But there are no authentic reports about that.
