Then keep pushing Check Now until it gets the update. It may take more than one try.

If it doesn't work... download the following zip and put it in to your Downloads folder and hopefully you should get something in the status bar about a software update.

I think they have turned down the brightness on automatic to help battery, they have also fixed apps like you tube to show the menu button in the correct place instead of the 3 dots at the bottom.

They say they have fixed the issue of garbled text in the notification bar and improved battery life but it will take a while before I could confirm either of those.

I haven't noticed any other changes.

TOTALLY agree here!

Well I never had an S2 but spec wise it's much better, screen , processor etc.

As far as looks, design, materials etc that's pretty subjective but I prefer the new HTC one. I certainly wouldn't buy a S2 now as the S3 is only around the corner.

If you can't wait for the S3 want a phone now and don't like the HTC's maybe the galaxy nexus might be worth a look?

hey guys. have had my One X for over a week now and I'm loving it.
I'm a novice when it comes to watching movies etc ... so would like some tips on how to get some HD movies on there (for free ideally).

thanks,
r

ps. ditto the issue with lag unlocking the phone, takes a noticeable second to wake up. also, position of unlock button (top right) is not ideal, obstructed slightly by the peak at the top of the phone

At least its not just me. Flashed a custom rom and still there, just not as much. I will give it a couple of days. Maybe it just needs to settle down.

Never noticed the lag when messing about with the gfs One X. Really do wish they put the power button on the side. So tempted to buy this, but I'm trying to wait to see what the SGS3 brings, I'm really not sure I can hold out till next month.

I wonder if there is any comparisons done on the battery of the S vs the X. If the S was a lot better I probably would go for it. The screen on the S is hardly small and its a lot thinner - might be a more sensible option
