HTC One S Officially Outdated, No Longer Getting Updated

If you read that and thought of the HTC One, you can continue breathing and caressing your new smartphone. In the past, HTC has used the name multiple times, and have in their collection the One X, One XL, One S, One V and One, all rather different from each other. However, HTC has now shrunk the litter and said that the One S will no longer be receiving updates. Those awaiting Android Jelly Bean 4.2 or HTC's Sense 5 UI are, unfortunately, out of luck.

A spokesperson for the company confirmed that the phone will no longer be supporting Android and Sense updates, and said, "We realize this news will be met with disappointment by some, but our customers should feel confident that we have designed the HTC One S to be optimized with our amazing camera and audio experiences." Fortunately, for those upset costumers there will always be people who will continue by building their own ROMs for the phone, especially as the HTC One X is still on the update track.

    HTC is trying to boost up sales for upcoming products by making the consumer buy a new device. To me it looks like a dirty tactic which was once known only to companies like Microsoft. But now every second company does so...

    I own this phone. I am not to upset. It works very with current version of android. Plus I've rooted and usually run an ASOP 4.2.2 rom.

    That being said, I bought this phone used, for $150 when it was still retailing for 350 here in canada. Had I paid full price or been locked into a 3 year contract for a phone that got less than 18 months of updates/support, I'd be a bit upset.

    I got the One s after a good experience with the desire HD. But from this point forward, I will only be buying Nexus devices brand new.
