Android 4.2.2 update hits the international version of the HTC One
The international version of the HTC One has received its update to Android 4.2.2. In addition to the OS update, the phone also received a minor update to Sense 5.0 although it will still go by the same title. One change allows you to long press the home key on the lower right of the device and instead of getting Google Now, you will get the menu key. The app drawer and the dock have been updated and screen saver "Daydream" has been added. You can have it appear during anything you do such as charging or docking.

The update also allows you to work with native Android sound profiles via equalizer controls. Next to the battery level, you can set up the phone to display the percentage of battery life remaining by going to Settings> Power> Show Battery Level.

This update is for the unlocked international model only. Those with an HTC One tied to a particular carrier will just have to wait. The carriers have to test out the update first before they give it the green light.

Absolutely nothing wrong with supporting more than one Company, I wish more people did the same. Just because you own a Samsung device doesn't mean you can't appreciate an htc device or vice versa.

Nice upate! Glad Sense has toggles again :D. I was wondering if Sense has the lockscreen feature for Android 4.2?

Hey annyone tell me how's the battery life of this phone if your a heavy user and how long it takes to fully recharge the battery ?

Takes a really long time to charge from near 0% to 100%, like ~3 hours on wall charger. Sorry, can't comment on battery life as my definition of heavy user is different to yours.

Yep. For some reason HTC didn't include quallcoms quick charge technology.

And it seems to be hardware related, so that can't be changed with a software update.

Snapdragon 600, small battery and a 1080p screen = bad battery life. Honestly if its a flagship phone it needs atleast 3000 mah at minimum with the best being 4000 mah if its unibody,

I can get through a day pretty easy and would consider myself a heavy user as I use it all day long to make calls, text email surf the web etc. I am on WiFi and can make it out office with 40%+ battery. The biggest battery drain is using the camera. Coming from the note 2 I was worried so I bought a 4,500 anker slim battery pack and I carry if I am going to be out for a very long time or are going to be active with the camera. If I have plans after work I usually plug in the phone around and the gets me up to 65%-75% charge.

Nice and quick, good job HTC.

PA, if you have an HTC One that's gotten the update, could you check through the settings to see if there is an option to turn Blinkfeed off? I remember there was a leaked early version of the 4.2.2 update to the Butterfly with a new build of Sense 5 that allowed the user to switch it off.

My thoughts exactly. I'd rather see phones with updates rather than the new Samsung Galaxy Mega phones who in all honestly cannot touch the Note II.

I may end up getting the One but it baffles me why it wouldn't have 4.2.2 from the start. Also didn't know it had bad battery life that some posters spoke about...that's a bummer

Just to let you know, I am a pretty heavy user. I surf the web over HSPA+ and LTE all the time, use apps constantly, and take picture every now and again, and the battery lasts about 2x as long or more then my GSIII did. Needless to say that compared to every other phone I have used, the battery is outstanding

Is there anyone who has got this update on his Htc one...? Mine is an unlocked International model, but i'm unable to find this update... i'm from Germany by the way.

Hopefully someone will check the new standby times, hopefully under 4.2.2 it'll be much improved.

The first time I updated my HTC One it shut down overnight and wouldn't turn back on. I had to boot into recovery and factory reset. This update is going to be a gong show. HTC style.....

Dude why do you have to lie all the time? You said you are on Roger in Canada so how do you have the update? Dude stop trolling why he not ban yet?

Funny how this is all the HTC fans can come up with to defend glaring flaws in their chosen company's handsets. It is quite sad actually.

I never lie. Noticed I said updated but didn't mention which update. If you were not so stupid, you would realize that there was an update released for Rogers in Canada. It wasn't 4.2.2 but it did crash my HTC One and that was a simple button sensitivity update. So you can imagine what this update will do.

What you say troll. It is funny how much you hate htc but you brought one. You are a troll and we all know that. None of the update crash your "one" but it would have been all over xda forum. Sprint had the same update. PA you blame a troll like you.

The phone is now 1 year old, I doubt if HTC will update it.. Take a cue from HTC sensation
