When the phone's owner took it into a local Far Eastern Tone office--a Taiwanese telco--to attempt to obtain a replacement phone, they insisted on a $21 USD inspection fee. Battery issues have plagued the HTC One X with many users reporting that the phone's battery swells up over time, something that is a clear indication of the lithium polymer cells degrading. HTC says that it is actively investigating the situation.
