How to Solve the Common HTC One Problems

•  HTC One Home or Back Buttons Response Issue

An owner reported in the Sprint Community that the home or back button of his new HTC One sometimes stop responding. From the owner’s point of view, this should not happen to a $500 device, but everybody knows that every smartphone has its flaws.  What you can do is to check the calibration on your phone and see if this would work. You can follow these steps:

1. Settings => Language & Keyboard => HTC Sense Input => Advanced => Calibration Tool, use a very light touch to calibrate. You might find the home and back button responding better this way.

2. Another way is to tap lock and unlock, or tap on the screen, then try the keys again. The buttons might be more responsive.

3. You can also go to Setting => Sound to turn on Vibrate Feedback to make sure you touch the buttons correctly and precisely.

•  Longer Charging Time Problem

Although HTC One has a 2,300mAh battery, some owners complains about the long charging time which can last up to four hours or longer. If this happens to your phone, then you can check out these tips.

1. If you are charging your HTC One via USB ports, then it will take longer, because USB ports are designed for file transferring and not charging.

2. Try with another HTC One charger to check if there is something wrong with your old charger.

3. Disable apps when you are charging, because the less applications that are running, the faster the phone will charge.

4. Turn the screen brightness to 0%, then it will charge faster.

•  HTC One Fast Battery Drain Issue

Besides the charging time issues, HTC One owners have also reported that HTC One batteries drains really fast. Someone posted in the Androidcentral forum that his HTC One battery drained from 10% to 2% in 30 seconds. He solved the issue by disabling the fast boot on his phone. If this does not help, then you can try the following settings.

1. Disable apps you don’t need, like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, GPS, etc.

2. Adjust the screen brightness to a low level, and reduce the screen timeout duration.

•  HTC One Lag or Freeze Issue

If there are many apps running in the background, the HTC One might start lagging. This is a very common issue, especially to those who don’t reboot their phones daily. The solution to this might be to close the apps running in the background to optimize the device’s performance. However, if there is an unstable application, HTC One may keep freezing. Many owners reported they experienced this freezing issue after installing a new application. So the easiest way to solve this issue is to uninstall that app.

•  Low Internal Memory Problem

HTC One suffers a low internal memory, just like the Galaxy S4’s, which makes you unable to install new apps. Considering HTC One as the flagship handset, you might be disappointed with this problem. However, this is easily solvable with a proper management of files and apps.

1. Uninstall the apps that you are not using.

2. Clear the cache of large apps on your HTC One.

3. If you’re on Sprint, the carrier offers a tool to determine the amount of storage memory left in your device using the Sprint Zone application.

There are still many other HTC One issues but it is hard to list them all. So, if you have encountered any other issues that are not mentioned above, then please leave your comments below.

  1. As of 2 days ago, my HTC One doesn’t include my voice on phone calls. The mic is OK (tested with Google voice), and the speaker works as does bluetooth.

  2. I just bought a brand new HTC One 801s. Everything works fine except when I am charging it I noticed the phone became very very hot. I am worried that it might explode because it is just so heated up. Now I have to switch off the phone before charging.

    Okay it may take longer to charge when there are apps running in the background but will it also cause the phone to heat up?
    Anybody experiencing the same problem? Or maybe I should take it back to the shop and ask for a refund?

    • Not necessary to take it back, it does get hot when charging and during extreme gaming… Because its made of a full metal body, it acts as heatsync for the phone.

      Its obe thing ive also noticed from my Htc one.

  3. My screen becomes unresponsive when touching some areas of the screen. I’ve tried re-calibrating the screen many time without success.

  4. Me and my sister have the htc one but her speakers including the boom sound is clear and loud, mine doesn’t sound anything like hers. Why is that and what can I do to solve the problem?

  5. Yeah well I have emailed them they haven’t got back to me as yet if you could contact them and put yourself in my shoes by saying that you and your brother or sister have the htc one and say everything else I wrote on here and then whatever they guide you through just write it on here for me that would be absolutely brilliant please.

  6. While charging my HTC ONE 801e is getting hot,not only the handset even the charger is getting hot.Is this due to the power problem as my device and charger is from USA and i am using it in INDIA.please help me to find it out.

  7. I’ve had multiple issues with my phone not ringing (though it will vibrate) and not being able to change to different ringtones for notifications. The notification tone is so loud, I would like to switch it, but no matter what I do, (stock or downloaded) it won’t change. I’ve been to Verizon multiple times for the phone not ringing, only vibrating, and they have been unable to fix the issue. It does get very hot if I’m playing a game.
    If I could count on it to ring for an incoming call, I would like the phone a lot, but this has definitely been disappointing.

  8. my htc automatically restart

  9. I keep getting notice gmail is not sending I do receive email. It says to authenticate name and password but it won’t let me change anything.

  10. My apps close when I try and open them?

  11. I have had my HTC ONE for less than a year and the sound is rubish, as it was after about 3 months. also the charger lead falls out too easily. Not very impressed with the build qulity. The phone is very good on performance, emails, vids, photos, web etc. It is very anoying regarding my contacts list although I think Google might also be a problem there, I have multiple entries for the same contact and it doesn’t display the names the way I typed them. If I ever have the time to spare I will be going back to the shop to see what they can do.

  12. After upgrading to Kitkat, my HTC one seems to be laggy when viewing video.
    This often occur every 1 minutes or sooner. Any idea how to deal with this issue?Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
