But Tegra/NVidia fault or not, I'm least bothered, when HTC sold a costly HOX to me 2+ years ago, they have touted it to be the best phone, if they cannot provide a update to it 2 yrs down the line, I guess the last update happened 1 year ago, I will be forced to buy a new device to stay updated. I have real feeling that this is a marketing strategy of HTC, they will be saying the same thing next year about M7 and the next about M8

I'm done with this .. will keep using the HOX, till I can.. then will ditch HTC. Believe me, I have a few friends who bought HTC devices after looking at mine over the years, yes minimum 20 / 30 devices. I will make sure they also stop buying... Good luck HTC.. I or my friends won't ever bother you in future.
HTC changed their complete policy with the one series!...especially with m7 and m8 ...m7 is getting many updates and also still will get more...it will get android l and maybe even the next If not with help of the community... Also the one x was the best when it came out and a few months later...but it is now nvidias fault, and no one would know that nvidia would drop the support of their own drivers so fast...

Because of Qualcomm the s600 and s801 will be still supported a longer time so yea drivers will be there to get newer android versions running on it...so don't say it's HTC fault! There are many many other OEM which are much worse then htc ever was!
Its simple read before asking and use the search button and always be thankful its FREE!!!

Devices : HTC HD2 (Sold/broken), HTC One X (has my sister now), HTC One M8 (current) (changing roms always after few weeks of use and testing)

It was HTC 's responsibility to source components that would be supported. My One X+ still hasn't received a single official update despite it being HTC 's flagship device in late 2012. If you think HTC cares about you and other HTC users then you are simply deluded. They became complacent about a loyal fan base, largely due to the XDA Developers modding community, and a large market share, took it for granted then nearly went bust. That IS HTC 's fault. It's ludicrous to try to blame all of that on nvidia.

There's and NVIDIA are the reason after so many years I have finally moved away from HTC.my experience so far is a good one with regards to hardware but it's a poor effort on the software that has left a sour taste which won't be forgotten soon

I can understand that is HTC's business strategy to push us to buy its newer products and its resource is more focus on newer products than this Miss of Yesterday like One X. But, in the end-user perspective, it would be hurt when you have just paid money for a hi-end product (Miss of Today) but it would be an Miss of Yesterday (without any supports) within 1-2 year. That may be a HTC's success in business but it will be fail to win a loyal user. Sooner or later, no loyal customer may have a negative impact on its sales
HTC should change, it may at least spend a minimum support for this until its specs can not meet the newer updates, even the time may get longer, it is still ok
Another thing that up to now, I don't understand why HTC does't release RUU for 4.19, the latest and the last rom by now. When your phone is at 4.19, you can not use RUU anymore. For a mainstream user, when they want to factory reset all, no way except nandroid backup
I myself will look into what HTC is doing with its M7 and M8 before deciding to buy the newer HTC phone (may be M9). But now, it is enough for me with this Miss of Yesterday
