Sprint HTC One gets minor update

Sprint HTC One gets minor update
The HTC One has been almost exactly what the doctor ordered for Taiwan based manufacturer HTC. No, it won't outsell the Samsung Galaxy S4 as that model is aiming at taking out the Apple iPhone 5 as the top selling smartphone. But it has brought a new life to the company which has been suffering from lack of demand for models that it had pinned high hopes on. This time, though, HTC seems to have hit the right buttons with the sexy design of the solidly built handset and with the BlinkFeed streaming social news aggregator. 

Sprint's version of the HTC One has just received an update, but it doesn't change the OS build which is already at Android 4.1.2. What the update does do is add improvements to the aforementioned BlinkFeed and adds a new Sprint Zone client for the phone. Lastly, the update also improves the sensitivity of the Back and Home keys.

The update will hit your phone OTA or you can try to pull it out manually by going to the home screen and tapping on All Apps>Settings>System Updates>HTC Software Updates>Check now. Follow the directions for downloading and installing the update, which brings the software version to 1.29.651.10.

Actually Sprint has been first at updates on many phones. No clue what you're talking about. I wish Verizon was half as good as Sprint.

No no no, you're thinking of Verizon. Sprint is actually fairly decent with updates.

A real premium device is the Lenovo K900. Steel not crappy alumnium. Powered by intel smooth as liquid no lag ever. x86 Not crappy ARM!http://asia.cnet.com/story_media/62220043/sc001.jpg This phone is seriously underrated, I bought one and it is the best phone I have ever owned. Its only dual core and it scores the same as the Exynos 5. The camera is also extremley underated its 13MP and beats the HTC One in lowlight!!! The one downside is its only 3g :(
