Home screen on HTC One S goes berserk video
Apparently there are some owners of the HTC One S smartphone that are experiencing a glitch with the Android Ice Cream Sandwich handset that has persisted for some time, whereby the home screen of the smartphone goes berserk and switches between the home screen and helicopter view.
According to the guys over at Phone Arena, when the HTC One S does this crazy thing, if you attempt to interfere the handset’s three capacitive buttons stop responding; however it would appears that locking and unlocking the device temporarily sorts out the issue.
The HTC One S going berserk with the home screen has ruined the experience for numerous users, who have been trying to get some kind of explanation from HTC, who aren’t coming forth with anything of the kind at the moment. However according to the guys several forums have come up with an interesting explanation, and that is when the device is in a weak signal area, the handset has to boost the power output to reach the cell and apparently this can cause resonance between the GSM frequency and the capacitive buttons frequency on the handset.
The guys say basically the 900Mhz frequency used by some European carriers might be interfering with the 2G signal, and users have reported the problem including a 15-page thread over at XDA-Developers.
So you can see what is exactly happening with the HTC One S, we have a video showing off the home screen switching issue and button failure for your viewing consideration below, so don’t forget to check out the footage. As yet no solution to this problem has been offered by HTC, so we’d like to hear from any of our readers that own the HTC One S if they are experiencing this switching problem on their device.
