The HTC One currently is powered by Android 4.1.2, but according to an insider, the phone is just weeks away from getting updated to Android 4.2.2; considering that Android 4.2.2 has been rolling out to various devices since February, it is not such a surprise that owners of the device want the later Android build on their phone...

Lenovo K900 power of S4 with better build quality than the HTC One. Also a 5.5" 1080p screen, better lowlight camera than htc one and a 2ghz intel atom with the same GPU used in the S4.

It has been tested the HTC ONE low light camera is way! better than the S4 because of ultra pixel, and also we have higher resolution screen than the S4 so HTC ONE winner!

Just because the HTC one has more ppi than GS4 doesn't mean its a better a screen. I saw the screen on the GS4 and I'm blown away on the Full HD Super AMOLED. I actually find it better than the HTC One.

Guess it boils down to if you like LCD or AMOLED.

HTC fails mostly on updates. Sips tea. Samsung and Apple are the most seasoned when it comes to updating their devices. Learn from them HTC. .[+]

Apple updates their devices even if that model was released years ago and samsung will not miss out giving an update even to their old mid range devices. I agree with you HTC and other manufacturers should learn from these two companies and not leave their old phone by not giving any more update

updates are about the quality, not the frequency. Look how apple screwed up the iphone3gs in terms of speed when ios6 came out..

And the iPhone 4. It can barely open apps without lagging. If a phone isn't suited for the update, then it shouldn't be updated.

I don't get it, do you guys make up these facts all by yourself? How about a Google search for iOS 6 on iPhone 3GS/4 review?

i feel people should be given a choice "Hey you CAN update your phone to the lastest software but there is a possibility that phone will lag but it is your choice"

Now that would be awesome because I know many people, myself incdued who had motorola droid devcies and were left behind on the updates. I still have my DROID 3 but its on wifi now and it still has android 2.3. Now I would choose for it to have at least 4.0 and risk it lagging a bit :)

Dude, that's a false information. iOS 6 didn't screw up, rather made the 3GS snappier.

My cousin has a 3GS and it's almost a brick. He's counting down the day of his next upgrade is how fed up he is with the lag.

Also, my step father has an iPhone 4 for AT&T. That phone lags a hell lot more than it did running iOS 5.

I don't "make up" these facts, I've witnessed them.

Nope, that's not true. Every single review of iOS 6 running iPhone 3GS/4 states that it made the phone a lot smoother. iOS 5 made the 3GS lag.
C'mon smurf, you just hate apple so you're making up false stories!

So you're going to tell me I'm wrong and biased because reviews on the internet claim to boost the performance of a phone when in real world situations it lags? Take a minute and evaluate what you said.

And yes, I do hate Apple for their business practices, but they do make great products.

Reviews aren't biased either.

.... Having a conversation with you is pointless. You're mind is so set into believing reviews from tech sites but when it comes down to an actual owner experience and review, you disregard it and claim it's not true. Congratulations on living in denial.

Comment #33 supports my point so is he/she wrong as well?

I don't know, maybe yes. No surprises, 'cause everyone knows that the readership of PA is full of Apple haters.
Just think of it: Apple's still selling millions of iPhone 4s running iOS 6. If it was laggy or buggy or whatever, then why would people buy it?

1. Because that's what's popular?
2. Do you want me to take a picture of my step father's iPhone 4 running iOS 6.1? Because apparently I'm "lying."

My sister has an iphone 4 w/ ios6. Don't tell me its more fluid. Mate ios4 was more fluid than ios6. Its laggy, and buggy. Crashes more often than not either.

35. quadrazeus (Posts: 359; Member since: 03 May 2013)


Alright. So now everyone's got a family member with an iPhone 3GS/4 running iOS 6 who complaints about the slow performance, bugs, crashes, etc.
Seems legit.

It really does considering iPhones are popular. Keep living in denial bud.

Generally speaking when people bring in iPhone 3Gs's or 4's with iOS 6 to my store they are almost all laggy and almost every 3gs that I have seen with iOS 6 on it have been almost unusable. That said most people using 3Gs's have almost never updated their phones period.
