AT&T kicks off Android 4.3 update for HTC One
One of the best handsets of the year, the HTC One, is now receiving the Android 4.3 update on AT&T. The carrier has been rolling out the update since yesterday, and if yours has not arrived yet, it should appear over the next few days. If you are really impatient, though, you can manually check to see whether it’s available for your device by going into setting for AT&T Software Update and then selecting the Tap Check for Updates option. It’s an over-the-air update, and after it installs, your phone will automatically reboot into the updated Android 4.3 experience.

Android 4.3 is an incremental update, but still it brings a few noticeable improvement. It delivers more toggles for quick access to oft used settings in the notification shade, and you can add widgets to the lockscreen. HTC BlinkFeed is also updated to integrate with Instagram, and you can keep track of your friends updates there.

In the camera, you lock focus and exposure on a specific point. Then in HTC Music and HTC Zoe, some photographic features have been improved. Again, nothing major, but a nice and relatively quick little update.

The HTC One is the only premium Android smartphone from a well known phone maker to ship with an aluminum body, and it's now available for $120 on sale at Amazon Wireless.

Nice finally, the HTC One getting better and better, the only down side is the charge time, thanks to no quick charge available.

Installed 4.3 on my One earlier today. Everything seems to be working great; no bugs noticed yet. Feels good to be on a current android build... Well at least for a few weeks
