Android 4.2.2 HTC One update arrives in the UK
The Android 4.2.2 update for the HTC One has arrived in the UK, following the commencement of rollout in Europe recently. The update to HTC’s popular flagship smartphone brings it up to date, adding a few enhancements along the way.
The update is pushed out over the air (OTA), although you may have to check manually for the update, which is simply a case of heading into the settings menu and tapping “about”, where you’ll find the option to check for software updates.
We found we needed to install an initial patch to enable the update to run, but following a restart you’ll find that the actual firmware update is available.
Detailed in the update are a number of features, some of which are enhancements to HTC Sense 5. Others are part of the Android 4.2.2 experience, which has been available on the Nexus 4 for some time, and also on rival devices such as theSamsung Galaxy S4 since their launch.
Other specified elements of the update include enhancements to the launcher, widget panel arrangement, lock screen widgets, modified home button actions and the option to remove the navigation menu bar, which takes up space unnecessarily.
Elsewhere you’ll be able to display the battery level in the status bar, you get Android 4.2.2′s quick settings panel, and a host of updates to the camera too. There’s a new AE/FE lock option, better handling of Zoe files and a selection of six additional video highlight themes.
We’ve just updated our HTC One and we’ll report back on the impact that the changes make when we’ve had the chance to have a play.
