HTC today indicated that the One X and One X+ will receive no more software updates. In a statement provided to Phone Scoop, an HTC spokesperson said, "We can confirm that the HTC One X and One X+ will not receive further Android OS updates beyond Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5. We realize this news will be met with disappointment by some, but our customers should feel confident that we have designed both devices to be optimized with our amazing camera and audio experiences." The X and X+ launched in 2012 and were sold by AT&T in the U.S. They were replaced with the HTC One in 2013.

Has anyone owned an HTC Device and not felled screwed?
If they can't keep these updated through the life of a contract, what can they get right?
Just some perspective:
The iPhone 4S launched over 24 months ago and is still supported with the latest software updates. Not all features have trickled down, but the core API's, etc. have.
The HTC One X+ Launched 14 months ago, was abandoned in under 12 months. As a result, the iPhone 4S is worth about 5 times what an HTC One X+ is if you do a trade-in nowadays.
