HTC-One-review-04.JPGIf you’re one of the smug UK owners of the best Android phone on the market, the HTC One, you’ll be pleased to hear that the handset is now ready to receive the Android 4.2.2 update.

An over the air update, the download and installation should begin automatically after a prompt on your handset, though those itching to get started can head into the settings menu, tap about and select the option to manually scan for software updates.

As well as improvements to the HTC Sense 5 user interface (including better handling of Zoe files and a handful of fresh video highlight themes), the HTC One now gets a range of brand-spanking new Android features, including improved widget panel arrangements, a modified home button and lockscreen widgets, as well as the option to free up some screen space by removing the navigation menu bar, among many more new features.

Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and the Nexus 4 have enjoyed the Android 4.2.2 features for some time, meaning that the HTC One has now achieved Android-based parity with its closest rivals.
