The Sprint HTC One is ready to get its first software update and, while a small one, it does aim to solve an important problem.
The update, which is confirmed on the Sprint website, will bring your device to version 1.29.651.10 and and will include three fixes. First of all, it comes with improvements to BlinkFeed, but no exact details are given regarding what those improvements are.
Second, you’re getting a new Sprint Zone client, but the most important thing is that it improves the Back and Home key sensitivity. This has been an issue that quite a few users have been complaining about and that HTC has acknowledged and offered a fix for. That only happened for some versions of the device, though.
Now users of the Sprint HTC One are also getting it, but the interesting thing is that HTC also pushed some other improvements as part of updates that solved the key sensitivity problem. These included camera, Beats Audio and Bluetooth improvements, but they don’t seem to be mentioned for this update.
If you have a Sprint HTC One (which is also available in Stealth Black), you should know that the update is coming OTA and will be released in stages, so you’ll eventually get it, even if it doesn’t happen immediately.
If you haven’t made up your mind about buying the HTC One or not, maybe our review will help you make a decision.
