The HTC One X+ turned out to be a monumental failure sales-wise, as the Taiwan based manufacturer was aiming to produce a top-shelf model to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S III. The phone itself was an attempt to upgrade the HTC One X which was an even poorer attempt to compete in the high end of the Android handset market. The good news though, is that it all led to the development and production of the HTC One which has proven to be the hottest HTC model in years.
Now, those who own the HTC One X+ in Asia are getting an update to Android 4.2.2 and the Sense 5.0 UI which brings many of the latest HTC features to the handset, including BlinkFeed. This feature allows you to view live streaming video from your social networking and news sites. Included with the update is the feature that shows video highlights from your photo gallery, and the usual Android 4.2.2 additions like Daydreams and lock screen widgets. The update also brings improvements to the phone’s battery life.
The update is 484MB which means that you might need a C-section to birth it. Seriously, this is a rather hefty update that for now is being rolled out for unlocked units in Asia. Eventually though, we should see this update made available to HTC One X+ owners in Europe and the U.S. And back in May, we passed along the speculation that the Android 4.2.2 update and Sense 5.0 will also be made available for the HTC One X.
