HTC is famous for its Sense software, a graphical user interface developed by HTC Corporation for mobile devices running Android, Brew and Windows Mobile, but unfortunately this time HTC has let us down with its multitasking issues in HTC One X and HTC One S. Before the release of the HTC One X, S and V, HTC was “bragging” about how touting Sense 4.0 is, the lightest, leanest version of their Android skin ever.
We were forced to believe them after seeing how zippy and kicky fast Sense was, not only in real world usability tests, but in benchmarks as well.
HTC One X features Android™ 4.0 with HTC Sense™ 4 and has a 4.7-inch (1280 x 720 resolution) display which is good enough to work on or to even watch movies. HTC One X has total memory of 32 GB and 1GB RAM and runs on 1.5 GHz quad-core (global version) or 1.5 GHz, dual-core LTE version (USA and selected countries) making it one of the fastest smartphones out in the market
HTC One X and HTC One S are one of the hot pick Android handsets on the market right now, which is very much justified because of its shining reviews. However, some users are becoming disgruntled with the way in which the handset handles multitasking. The users are reporting that the memory management is way too “aggressive” than it needs to be. They say that if an application is left unattended for more than thirty seconds then the phone automatically kills the application. No one can deny the fact that this “feature” makes the phone lightning fast and makes its battery lasts much longer but it has its demerits too.
The apps seem to be completely removed from cache every single time they’re left unattended for more than thirty seconds. They also no longer re-open in the same state that you left them! So if a user leaves the browser, he needs to reload the web page. If he leaves a game, he needs to start from the beginning. If he pauses and exits Slacker radio for a minute, the app closes and he can’t even resume his music even with the headphones button! Users take it as a very irritating problem and feel cheated for their money.
But the real problem is that HTC isn’t going to fix this bug instead they say that the phones are working perfectly and were meant to be like this.
Below is a video of the problems faced by the HTC One X users.
