It's the end of the line as Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5 come to the AT&T branded HTC One X+ this week
It is the end of the line for HTC's one-time flagship, the HTC One X+. On Monday, we found out that this model will not be updated past Android 4.2.2. Which means that when AT&T pushes out the update this week as expected, it will be the end of the line for the model. Luckily for HTC One X+ owners, they will be getting Sense 5 with the update, which means they will be receiving BlinkFeed, the visual social and news feed reader. Also along for the rise is the Video Highlights feature, which makes a highlight video from your pictures and videos. You can even add background music and use filters.

Other changes will be coming to the camera interface, calendar, people and music apps. We know the update is coming this week thanks to a tweet from @moversi, who is the Executive Director, Product Management at HTC. The tweet notes that the Android 4.2.2. update has finally received technical acceptance from the carrier.

If you are an AT&T customer with the HTC One X+, keep an eye out for the OTA update. Sense 5 will make it feel like you own a brand new phone.

The Sensation got TERRIBLE support. That's the reason why I never got a HTC One, aside from the hype and flop of a camera.

Who said ? The HTC sensation, amaze, evo series weren't powerful enough to run the latest version of android. Do you think android 4.4 with sense 5 would run fine on htc sensation ?

Actually, yes, considering it has 768MB of RAM and Sense 5 is extremely light.

Samsung Galaxy S II was powerful enough to get Jelly Bean and it had the same Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 APQ8060 as the Amaze. How do you explain that one?

It has an outdated dual core 1.2 Ghz cpu and a low-res display.It would take hell of time for the device to bootup itself.

s3 sold more than the one x and x+ so htc is going to end support

Updates shouldn't be about sales, it should be about the customers. Plain and simple, if the device can run the OS problem free it should be updated.

Don't buy phones from companies that don't support them. That's the only appeal of an apple product they support their phones til the hardware can't.

Because KitKat has no support for a Quad Core & 1GB RAM device... oh wait.

look before everyone bags on htc, i've been looking into it and it's nvidia that are the issue. they have stopped support on the tegra 3 soc variants that are in the one x (ap33) and one x+ (t33) so that's no more board support packages, drivers, etc. this is for 4.4, i'm still trying to find if they did a bsp for both for 4.3 . samething happened with the the htc one s (c2 1.7 ghz snapdragon s3) and sony's early 2012 flagships with the xperia s, acro s and ion. qualcomm stopped support for the snapdragon s3 soc so no more updates. i own a one x and i'm as angry as some people on facebook but i can understand why htc have stopped support for the phone. it was completely out of their hands. oh and before someone mentions the nexus 7, the t30l tegra 3 soc is still supported by nvidia, that's why it's still getting updates

OK than explain to me how developers on XDA have 4.4 roms running on the HTC one x and HTC is just now releasing 4.2.2?

26. mrbtree98

because htc will only use the latest resources available to them. cm10.2 or 4.3 and cm11 or 4.4 are using the kernel sources for 4.2.2 from htcdev. yes it works and thomy is an insane dev and i loved his build of cm10.2 but how many thing are broken or semi fixed and have been for awhile. htc, sony samsung will only release an update if they've got the bsp for that android version as it's designed for that version.

I think PA should do an article on driver support to clarify things then.

Well, 4.2.2 with sense 5 is still bertter in my opinion than any other OEM UI, unfortunately my HTC one x still didnt get that update:(

Not really sure what the big deal is. HTC updated the One X and + for pretty much 2 years. Contracts end at 2 years. Thats kind of the point.
