Neither me :'( but out of all honesty there are 2 things:

1: It will come eventually.

2: You buy something for what it is, not what it will be.

I think a lot of people make purchasing decisions about the future functionality of the device, and the likely hood of free, or even paid upgrades.

Android, like iOS has a new OS version every year or so, and people expect their device to be updated, 4.2.2 came out a long time ago, months before the HTC One was even out.

Although I think the people who do seriously want to keep up with Google updates will find a way how, like converting your HTC One to Google Edition, or buying a Nexus.

Chill dude.  Totally not bothered about the update, was just chiming in to say I hadn't got it so people in similar situations knew.  I'm not bothered about the update anyway, still learning Android as its my first since leaving my iPhone, although I can see why people are ancy with it being available on other devices so long.

I''ve never rooted or anything, but most of the features of Android 4.2.2 can be easily added with apps (no root required) the only thing I'm really keen on is 4.3 due to its TRIM support

Well at least on GPe 4.3 feels far superior to 4.2, it is far more buttery and fluid feeling

As I understand it 4.3 is all about under the hood

Wondering if anybody here has tried the Spigen SGP Ultra Thin Air on their phone? I looked at reviews a while ago, and they seemed favourable, so went ahead and ordered one at the end of last week. Order has been held up due to "suspected fraud" (just because i'm international??), which i can clear up by sending them proof of billing address etc.. however, i'm now having second thougts. This thing has terrible reviews on Amazon now, mostly around 1-2 stars: Spigen on Amazon

Ideally i want a thin, clear but not shiney, case that protects from scratches but doesn't hide or bulk up the phone. This seemed to tick all the boxes, but after all the terrible reviews, i'm considering not providing the detail they want to confirm i'm not a fraudster, and cancelling the order

Check out Klipsch S4A. It is an android headset - the S4i (iPhone version) got really high ratings. I think you can pick that up from amazon for about 50 bucks usd or something.

I bought three of these yesterday with the intention of painting them or customising them in some way. For $1.50NZD shipped you cant really go wrong, even if they take 3 weeks to get here.

lokhor: are the stock headphones any good?


I havent used them for much other than VOIP calls over Viber and Skype, but they seem to be pretty standard. Just as good as Apple ones if you wanted to compare.

I usually use a pair of Senheisser over ears for music so I cant really comment.

I'm no expert on earphones, but I really like them, sound quality is great.

Yeah, they aren't outstanding but they are pretty good. They certainly meet my needs anyway.

I have to say the are 1000 times better than the absolute rubbish ones that came with the One X, those things were so cheap and terrible it was beyond belief.

Interesting that you think they are better than the One X ones. I have been so disappointed by the ones that came with my Hero, Desire HD and OneX that I didn't even bother taking the ones that came with my One out of their packaging. Might be worth carrying around as a backup after all.
