According to the reactions coming from HTC One X users, HTC has altered the multitasking on its flagship smartphone with Sense 4.0. Reports say that the One X behaves differently on multitasking actions than other Ice Cream Sandwich smartphones.
There are visual modifications, such as the list of apps screens, scrolling horizontally. Apart from this obvious aspect, Sense 4.0 closes background apps in a more aggressive fashion, which its loyal users strongly resent.
Techies agree that this was HTC's way to improve the phone's battery life. The Verge's Dieter Bohn contacted the company in search for some answers.
HTC explained that multitasking on the One X is actually "operating normally". However, the company has decided to acknowledge the issue.
"HTC is aware of some questions in the enthusiast community about how the HTC One X handles multitasking and memory management for background apps," states the company.
HTC also added that the problem doesn't exist anymore, "according to (their) custom memory management specifications which balance core ICS features with a consistent HTC Sense experience."
Previously, HTC had to admit there were issues with the Message Notification, also on the One X.
