HTC One to get updated to Android 4.2.2. in a matter of weeks

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...

I have personally used 3GS and 4 running ios 6 and i would say 3Gs lags like hell when scrolling and even typing. Iphone 4 is bearing but it lags too in many areas.

I have an iPhone 4. It runs on ios 6. I don't have problems with lag. This is an actuall owners experience not a second hand account.

Maybe you dont have too many apps installed. I used the iphone 4 for about a month on iso6, have to say one of the worst experiences I have had with ios.

I have an iPhone 4. It doesn't lag cause its in the drawer.

LOL seriously I'm quite sure its not laggy with iOS 6. Though I'm not sure if it should be more fluid than it is cause its on iOS 6 already when I got it. And also just few apps installed.

They aren't that bad as you make them out to be, the Butterfly which is a 2012 phone already got a 4.2 leak with Sense 5, the One X is said to get the update very soon too.

What?! The HTC One will get updated to Android 4.2?!

What about the Sony Xperia Z? Geez.......you're slow Sony! ;(

I wonder why these manufacturers are so slow to update their flagships to Android 4.2........

Xperia Z is really irrelevant to HTC and this article.

That's why I added the last sentence,

"I wonder why these manufacturers are so slow to update their flagships to Android 4.2........"

OEM's aren't Samsung or Apple. Instead of updating their phones, they sit on the sidelines and lose market share each quarter.

This isn't an opinion btw, it's a fact.

.... Adding why Sony hasn't updated their Xperia Z is actually irrelevant. You got your point across with the next sentence. Hungry for green thumbs much?

I dont think so, If there is a new flagship coming out, say the Xperia Togari, meanwhile the Galaxy Note lll is also on it's way, Does that mean I would be irrelevant when I mention Note lll in the Xperia Togari's Article?

Comparing is not irrelevant in any case, as long as there are at the same category, in this case, Jelly Bean 4.2.2, which will come to most of the flagship.

Yeah, but widgets, photosphere, and multiuser (cant even be used on a phone) cant be a substantial update everyone is going crazy about...am I missing something?

4.2 is a minor update, like 6.1 was to iOS 6.:

i want photosphere and of course multi-user, multi-user is such a useful feature on tablets.

More options to notifications

So yes, there are thousands of people like me.

No really a minor update, Papa Smurf! There are softwares that do not support 4.1.2 e.g DashClock...

The notifications improvement is very nice also in 4.2.2

Why do you want 4.2? I don't think it has any new features. I think Sony will provide an update to 4.3 when it comes out.

Sony is waiting for xperia S/SL/acro update to roll out before rolling out xperia Z's

The update is already done last month. They dont want customers to feel unfair.

HTC is shady. Does anyone remember them promising updates to the One X, S, and the older models but got delayed for months?

HTC had put most (if not all) of its resources into getting the One's software (aka Sense 5.0) ready for prime time (aka JB 4.1.2). One X, S, etc. are yesterday's news. When you are fighting for your survival, triage comes naturally.

And then those locked into a contract with a One X, S, or an older model may not pick up another HTC phone due to the lack of support. Think from an average Joe's perspective.

When you are in survival mode, past customers don't count as much as immediate future customers. The past customers can be courted with an update or two once the crisis has passed.

When you have to decide between the future or the past, the immediate future gets the attention.
