HTC Sad

Android updates, it’s one of the most crucial aspect when you’re a proud owner of a flagship device. The manufacturer is committed to give you the best software experience but that might once again not be the case with HTC and their aging flagship device, the HTC One X.

The handset, originally launched with Android 4.0.4 was luckily given a [late] Jelly Bean 4.1.2 upgrade, HTC is also willing to upgrade it to the second flavor of Jelly Bean (4.2.2) but whether it would receive Android 5.0 was still a mystery until now.

A trusted leakster and developer by the name of LlabTooFeR has recently announced via Twitter that HTC won’t give the One X any more updates post-Android 4.2.2.

This does certainly not come as a pleasant surprise of all faithful owners but that’s just how HTC handles things on the software side, they clearly don’t care about previous flagship devices. Sense 5.0 will make it to the HTC One X but that’s the end of the road for the smartphone.

That was to be expected from HTC, poor software and terrible updates. Their last updates were bloated with a problematic version of Sense, had stability and usability issues along with relatively poor performance.

  1. Which problematic version of sense are you talking about exactly? I was very happy with jelly bean and sense 4+ on my One X and sense 5.0 on my One is delightful. You obvisouly are a hater

    • Initial Jelly Bean firmwares released last year had stability issues with Sense UI, even HTC acknowledged that Sense was bloated but they really didn’t do much to improve it on the One X. Sense is an obvious resource hog anyways.
