HTC One S with Jelly Bean

Look, we get that everyone's pissed off over the HTC One S not getting an update to Android 4.2.2. It sucks. We're right there with you. But there's been a growing but consistently wrong meme this evening — "The HTC One SV gets Jelly Bean but the HTC One S doesn't?!?!?! Ha ha!!!"

No. The HTC One SV is getting Android 4.1. Same as the HTC One S, which got its Jelly Bean update way back in December 2012 in Europe, and in April 2013 on T-Mobile here in the U.S.

It's Android 4.2.2 that the One S isn't getting. And if we had to put money on it, we wouldn't expect to see it on the One SV either.

I meant more towards not worth it to write up because of a few Internet trolls. But I get what you're saying.

I'm on a Galaxy Nexus so I've always had the latest Android version but I fail to see what the big deal is with 4.2. It's nice to have the latest but it isn't significantly different from 4.1 and might be even a little slower. HTC One S owners are not really missing out on anything.

I don't get it either. I am perfectly happy with my HTC One running 4.1. It's smooth, fast, and does everything I need it to do.

The reason I personally would not want to be without 4.2.2 is the quick settings in the notification shade. Pull down with 2 fingers and quick toggles for a bunch of stuff. I really like that and I wouldn't want to go back to 4.1 if I didn't have to.

I can't believe HTC is shutting down everyone's phone.

Oh wait, you mean the phone works the same as it did yesterday? What's everybody bitching about then?

Sadly my carrier hasn't released the jelly bean update yet. On the flipside because of this I never expected to get sense 5, so the news didn't come as a huge shock.

A huge majority of those who own the one s, don't know the difference between 4.1 and 4.2. Those left probably have the knowledge and interest to root and install 4.2 anyway. To me this is a moot point.
