Do not buy HTC thinking they will update to new android versions. They do make great hardware, so root and have a great device.
? We got 4.1.1 by now, which is JellyBean. If you don't have your update yet on your carrier, that's probably not HTCs fault.

Yet I agree it took them a bit long to release it. And yes, keep in mind that HTC is a rather small company, unlike Samsung. Let's just hope that they are a bit more conservative with phone releases this year - and I'm rather hopeful as the One was the only phone they introduced at the event (unlike 3 phones last time). More will follow for sure, nobody should doubt that and that's not a bad thing. Just please not 3 versions of the same phone etc., that'd be great.

Carrier is ATT (only carier in the US that offered the One X), which I have no doubt shares some of the blame. But honestly, a few months after telling their customers that the ATT version of the One X would get 4.1, they release the One X+ on ATT with 4.1, now here comes yet another HTC phone with 4.1. For such a small company, they sure pop out a ton of hardware. (Since the release of the Galaxy SIII, how many "Flagship" devices has Samsung released?) That all just goes to my point, dont buy an HTC phone assuming they will update to a new version of Android in a timely manner if at all.

HTC's problem for updates I guess stems from the fact they make so damn many!!

If they keep their line up simple for 2013 it will be more manageable, 1-2 low end, 1-2 mid range, 1 flagship. Who needs to release a phone every other month, it's insane lol

For example:

On the UK site HTC have the following
  • HTC One
  • HTC One SV
  • HTC One X+
  • HTC Desire X
  • HTC 8X
  • HTC 8S
  • HTC Desire C
  • HTC One X
  • HTC One XL
  • HTC One S
  • HTC One V

Maybe it will quick updated to Android 4.2, but I think the time is at least after the release of Android 5.0.

They won't update the HTC One. They will release the HTC One+ in 3 months anyway with JB 4.2.2

One X got JB OTA months back, late Nov if I recall correctly, and I am in India where it comes after a few weeks of official live date.

If you bought a locked one X then HTC are not to be blamed, they promised 4.1.1 which they delivered.

Suprised they didnt ship it with 4.2.1 atleast since its been out for a while now. Plus they probably received jellybean 4.2 months ago since google sends out the software months before its released.. But i guess it was buggy just my guess, so they used 4.1.2 .

Well samsung released
  • Galaxy s advanced
  • Samsung galaxy pop plus
  • samsung galaxy mini 2
  • samsung galaxy ace 2
  • samsung galaxy beam
  • samsung galaxy pocket
  • galaxy s3 inclduding us variants
  • galaxy ace advance
  • galaxy chat
  • galaxy note 2
  • galaxy s3 lte
  • galaxy note 2 lte
  • galaxy s3 mini
  • samsung galaxy premier
  • samsung galaxy grand

There are more that were released in the US running android and under the galaxy range. Doesnt matter about releasing loads of devices as much, they just need to keep the emphasis on the flagships.
