Sprint HTC One getting Android 4.3 update
Following rollouts for the U.S. developer edition and Canadian HTC Ones, the Sprint device has become the first U.S. carrier-branded version to get its Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update. HTC America president Jason Mackenzie took to Twitter to confirm that the update is now pushing out, and AC reader Tony tells us he's already got it on his Sprint-branded device in New Orleans.
In addition to the latest version of Android, the update brings new Sense features including Instagram support in BlinkFeed and new video highlight templates. If you're rocking an HTC One on Sprint, jump in the comments and let us know if you've gotten the update.

4.2, right? Look at the GNex, then tell me again it isn't as big of a deal as with other carriers. But I guess it's natural to be defensive of Verizon... Posted from my pure Google Nexus 4 using the AC app.
Damn!!! I just switched from sprint to AT&T two months ago, and I have the HTC ONE. Now who knows how much longer I'll have to way for the update. Posted via Android Central App
I just downloaded the 4.3 update all of it on my phone using Sprint 4G, I used the 4G for the download and install the update. And it was fast enough their network to do the job... I live in SE Michigan.
If you can't wait then you can always try that...
4.2.2 and sense 5
Live in Las Vegas and bought my One on launch day... Don't know if that has anything to do with it but lets see how it goes...
Best in updates? Well you can have that, if that's what matters to in a carrier... Sprint is the last stop before non contract prepaid services in Phx,Az...that can be good or bad...depending on what u want.. Posted via Android Central App
The new Sense 5 is amazing. Very fast and very efficient but I wish that they had allowed the ability to scroll through the five app drawers at the bottom.
The only thing that I cannot figure out is what the symbol at the top of the notification bar is. It looks like it is in the shape of an "N". Any clues? Posted via Android Central App
