AT&T HTC One X+ gets update to Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5.0

January 17, 2014

    htc-one-x+-2

    As expected, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean has now begun rolling out to the AT&T version of the HTC One X+, marking the final major update for the One X+.

    That’s right, the handset will never officially see Android 4.3 or have the honor of moving past Jelly Bean and onto KitKat. With the HTC One X+ not even two years old, it’s a little disapointing to see HTC shelving the device to focus on the HTC One and other newer products. On the positive side, at least the One X+ is going out with a pretty big bang.

    The latest update brings Sense 5.0, and that means quite a few new features are being introduced, including apps like HTC Blinkfeed and the HTC Gallery. The UI in Sense 5.0 has also seen some significant improvements. For more details on what the update contains, click here.

    Keep in mind that it might take a few days for the update to reach all HTC One X+ users. If you’re unsure whether or not the update has reached you, you can always manually check for the update by heading to Settings> Software Update> Check for Updates.

    Any HTC One X+ users receive the update yet? If so, what do you think? Content enough with getting Sense 5, or angry about HTC’s decision to stop creating major updates for your handset?

      HTC is crap. It doesn’t care about their customers. No wonder HTC is doing poorly right now…

      • Amine Elouakil

        Which brand cares about it customers? Samsung? Sony ? LG? Motorola ? who ? all those brands ATT 2012 Flagships are still stuck at android 4.1 or below, so correct your facts before spouting non sens.

          The S3 has 4.3 and has been promised 4.4 however late it may be..

          • Amine Elouakil

            The international S3 Got 4.3 (from 4.1 months after the 4.2.2 on the One X) but is all the S3 carrier variants are updated to 4.3, the answer is No, some has been updated, where I live they didn’t, and this news is related to a carrier bound variant not the international version.

            4.4 Promised? can you please provide the link for this

              He said, Samsung promised 4.4 for the S3, the link you’ve posted not only say it’s a rumor, but the rumor does not make sense at all (the S4 And N3 aren’t getting updated any time soon heck by March and April some areas won’t have been even updated to 4.4 how does the S4 and N3 will be updated

            • Niral Ramesh

              Note 3 has gotten update internationally

            • Amine Elouakil

              So the One X and the Note 3 came out the same time? the Note3 didn’t get the 4.4 internationally or did I miss something ? only the Moto X and The One international dev edition got 4.4 right now

            • Niral Ramesh
            • Amine Elouakil

              Did you even read the artical ? rolling in test batch ! and to one version of the N3, but fair enough I guess the update is on it way, but that’s along while behind the kitkat update for the dev edition One and unlocked version (I’m not talking about GPE which was updated before the N4)

            • Niral Ramesh

              I guess you’re right. But honestly, I could care less. My nexus 5 has been running KitKat since day 1. My infuse 4g is rocking it too.

            • Amine Elouakil

              Yup getting a nexus device or GPE is the best way to get updated asap (but even google is having issue with that apparently …)

          • AussieGreek

            I’d like to see some some evidence please.

        Sad. Such a shame a great phone won’t be receiving kit kat. The S2 has what? 4.1? My HTC Sensation with similar specs (same CPU as sky rocket s2) and has 4.0.3. I mean it is running CM11 :), but the official update only went to ICS.

        • Amine Elouakil

          Now the question is, how does it run with 4.1, I’ll let you check it out

          • Jayfeather787

            It runs very well. Someone made a port of 4.1 with sense 5 and it is smooth.

            • Amine Elouakil

              Official update =/= Dev roms, the instalation process is not the same, the quality requirement are not the same, if you brick your phone it’s at your own risk ……..

              What I’m asking is does the official S2 Skyrocket update runs well (the answer is obviously no there are tons of issues being reported by the users)

            • Jayfeather787

              Oh, on the s2? I don’t know, I don’t have one.

            • Amine Elouakil

              just google it and you’ll see for yourself :p

      • AussieGreek

        What is the Motorola razr m running bird brain?

      • EvenInTheDarkestHour

        That has been the story of HTC…they are a “fire and forget” company. Updates come with new models.

    • Jayfeather787

      HTC’s new slogan: Quietly abandoning our phones.
      Anyway, this is pretty bad. This is an awesome phone with a Tegra 3, which is pretty good. I think that this should see kit kat. May this phone have and forever have great dev support!!!

      • Amine Elouakil

        Without proper drivers HTC Can’t make the update, HTC Most likely has an alpha version they are testing and probably things aren’t going so well, it was always the case, they always made and update they work with and then evaluate if it is stable enough and responds to quality requirement for an official OS, Desire had this same issue and when people started moaning HTC Released the software they had made, and same for other phone.

        Just look at the HTC One 4.2>4.3>4.4 and is most likely getting the next version unless it brings some drastic changes

        • Mr Mop

          BS my Nexus 7 2012 runs KitKat silky smooth with a Tegra 3, so there’s no excuse for HTC other than just being too lazy to update their phones.

          • AussieGreek

            Lucky you, I’ve noticed some stuttering and graphics issues with my Nexus 7 since the update.

          • Amine Elouakil

            Did I mention Nvidia? is the SoC is the only part that needs drivers on a phone ? does the Nexus 7 2012 run smoothly after the update? the answer to most of these question is No, so You are wrong.

            • Jayfeather787

              Actually I do have a Nexus 7 2012 as well, and I have noticed lag and stuttering compared to my nexus 7 2013, which is a rocket compared to the 2012. However, the lag and stutter did not start at kit kat, It started with jellybean 4.2/4.3. If anything kit kat made it a little better. Apparently, the issue is the amount of space taken up, the more space you have taken up, the slower the tablet is (as is in most cases) but the Tegra 3 especially cannot handle a lot of storage. Factory reset it or install a custom ROM, and it should be noticeably smoother.

            • Amine Elouakil

              Factory reseting a device after an update shouldn’t be acceptable, of course I’m talking from an average consumer perspective, that’s why With the desire HTC refused to update because it required deletting data for new repartitions so the phone can handle better the update, but when people started moaning they released it

      The HTC shills are really out in force here, defending their precious employer.
