Hey, HTC One X, no Key Lime Pie for you?
0. phoneArena 23 Apr 2013, 13:19 posted on
Late last month, speculation started percolating that the HTC One X would soon be receiving Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5, and while that will certainly bring a smile to the face of HTC One X owners, the bad news is that this could be the end of the road for the device according to a source with alleged ties to the Taiwan based manufacturer...

That would be a very questionable move on HTC's part.

This is sad..because i have an htc one x...but it is not official yet so theres still hope..but if its true then it is a wrong move for htc..

It won't be getting 5.0, wouldn't expect other devices like the butterfly or Dna to get it either.

Just glad i never bought the one x. Always wait for a good phone that have 4.1 4.2. Or keylime

HTC did the same crap on the One, comes with 4.1.2 while every other new phone is on 4.2. You would be lucky if you even get 4.2 on the One X by the time that 5.0 is announced.

Last I saw most phones are NOT on Android 4.2. Most are running 4.1 aside from the Nexus devices. Usually phones get at least 2 updates so anything with 4.1 out of the box should get 5.0.

NEW PHONE, learn to read. If HTC updates their phones like they have been the galaxy s2/s3 and Note 1/2 will be running 5.0 before the HTC One.

Well, the S4 will be the first phone out of the box with 4.2 and the One did come out before the S4. I doubt it will take long for the One to get 4.2, but again, there are no phones besides the Nexus that are already out and running 4.2 unless they have been rooted.
As for your "learn to read" comment, there is no need to be a jerk unless you just like acting like that.
Unless you can see the future, your opinion on this could very well be wrong just as easy as it could be right.

what is your problem? Htc is not that bad with updates. sometimes it takes a little longer but they always have been somewhat consistent at least. Now we can talk about horrible software updates with LG...

Shameful. At least Samsung fanboys can justify their fanboyism (I had to make that word up)
59. HDShatter (Posts: 1021; Member since: 17 Jan 2013)
Its not fanboyism, the S4 is clearly the better choice. If you are antisamsung wait for the Nexus 5/ Motorola X and avoid the One at all cost, it is a bad phone.

Contrary to all the other reviewers of the One... From someone that never owned it...
70. androiddownsouth (Posts: 598; Member since: 02 May 2012)
Now currently revealed as a HTC hater it appears. Everyone who I've seen review the HTC One has it as a legit, quality phone, right up there with the S4. Even the founder of CyanogenMod said he didn't want to pick between the two, per an article on this very website.
Feel free to say it is clearly the better choice IN YOUR OPINION, seeing as how it clearly is an opinion, and not a fact.

Just two of the reviews I read today both claims that One was the most innovative phone of the year in front of S4. Personal preference, I would definitely pick the One. With the way everything is going with N5 and Motorola X, One would probably win a sale from me if this continues.

I already got one major update for my One X so I'm good...I'm not greedy. Curious to see what kind of features will be coming with KLP and what specs are needed to run it properly.

You know what else won't get KLP...?..the iFail!

I've contacted HTC, this was their response:
... employees of the email team and want to take care of your concerns regarding the update for the HTC ONE X. I personally apologize for the inconvenience, I can understand that this has led to annoyances. I am happy to help you to resolve your concern as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately the speculation that it will not give any support or updates for the HTC ONE X after 4.2.2 is not correct. We always try our smartphone as HTC so far the hardware allows it to withstand up to date. For this reason, I can tell you that this news is not true.
Of course that is no guarantee, but at least they claim it has not been decided that the One X will be dropped yet. So for now there is still hope left. (I'm no insider and don't know how accurate LlabTooFeR predictions were in the past we'll).
If you are a One X (+) owner or think about buying a One , I suggest you sent a (nice) E-Mail to HTC telling them that you like their product, but are concerned about their updating policies. Maybe management will then finally realize how important pleasing your customers is (as they won't buy another device from you again if you don't).
