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...

The usual problem with Android. Some have the specs to support it and yet never get the update, despite being mid to high end phones. One X was even a flagship last year.

Its not the problem with Android... Its the problem with some OEMs who refuse to update their old phones... They just concentrate on new devices and they leave their loyal customers in the lurk.

Yep, true.. I called it "the problem with android" because as everyone knows, for companies like HTC and Samsung you see at least one new device monthly. Given the bulk and volume of Android phones made most of them will be neglected in no time. High volume and market share at the expense of fragmentation through neglected devices.

If we include those Chinese whitebox products and cheap knockoff products which runs none other than android- the activation of such phones in large numbers daily = activation of new android devices (and Google can boast on how many are activated daily) while such products rarely, if ever, get updated officially.

How many Samsung flagships come out a year. 2, 1 phone 1 phablet. HTC has a new flagships every other months.

Are you kidding me?! Do you hear about all the samsung phones that come out?? its like they come out with one once every 2 weeks! and they all look the same!
Ex: galaxy grand , galaxy grand duos, galaxy xcover, galaxy s 3 mini , galaxy young , galaxy win, galaxy fame, galaxy discover, galaxy premier
and don't get me started on the galaxy s2 models...

Not exactly true. One X+ isn't a flagship, it's just a supercharged edition of a flagship. Butterfly wasn't exactly a flagship, Butterfly is like HTC version of the Note. Other than these two devices, all other devices were mid level devices or carrier specific devices.

This is just speculation. I mean, Android 5.0 hasn't even been anounced, and they're already saying no updates for One X? If it does happen, then custom roms are always there.

no bro, Custom roms will never be as smooth as official roms from the manufacturers.... They tend to crash often... Not to mention the chance of bricking your precious phone

That's a blanket statement that just isn't true. Most custom ROMs i have run are in fact every bit as smooth and stable as stock, with more functionality.

For some device with better source code of the hardware you could get a near stable ROM. Because Qualcom, Tegra releases their source code But if you take the galaxy s3 with exynos processors, no matter what custom ROM you choose you would always have freeze and bugs in your device

you sound like someone with little to no experience flashing...

Yeah, I have never flashed my phone... But I have seen many of my friends bricked their phone while flashing even though they followed the steps provided on XDA... Flashing won't work for everyone

you're right, it's not for everyone. it's really only prosperous for those that aren't faint of heart and have a technical mind with technical know-how. flashing custom ROM's has generally been a good experience for me.

*buzz............................*

That's so untrue. I'm using custom ROM on all of my devices. I would say all the ones that aren't running nightlies are running even more smooth than stock ROMs.

I rarely use custom roms for the reason sheik mentioned. And custom roms are not considered as updates to me because they are not official, so, it still doesnt change the fact that the phone did not get the update and was left out by the OEM.

I would recommand you not to update to KLP if your phoen hardware is not capable of handling it..

Doubt its going to be a major spec requirment, 1gb ram + dual core cpu should be enough.

Let the devs work their magic. I didn't think my Desire HD would be able to run JB, but it did and hell did I loved it.

the galaxy nexus won't be updated to the next version of android either, hence the delay

that's completely bogus. we don't even know what kind of upgrade KLP will be much less what it's requirements will be. *shakes the salt shaker all over the comment section*
