The HTC One is one of the hottest, and arguably best, smartphones on the market right now, but that doesn’t mean it’s perfect. Like all devices, it can stand to be improved quite a bit. It’s taken a bit to get here, but the HTC One is finally receiving its first major update in the form of the 4.2 Android update.
The update answers a lot of complaints people had about the HTC One while also adding Android 4.2 features such as the Daydream screensaver, lock-screen widgets (or, to be more precise, widget), and quick settings toggles. The update also makes screenshots instantly shareable and integrates Instagram with HTC’s BlinkFeed. The video below shows many of these features and more.
Few days after the update hit Taiwenese HTC One owners, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update is starting to roll out for HTC One owners in different parts of Europe as well. We reported earlier that the update was confirmed by Three in a tweet as well few weeks back. The update is sized at 417MB and few owners of the 4G variant of the device began seeing the update via OTA (over-the-air).
