    I doubt there is a date from any carrier yet but it's expected to roll out to unbranded devices within days. I would be interested to hear what owners of those devices think. It could be a while before my O2 branded phone gets it too.

    Any bets as to when Telus gets around to rolling it out? I'm guessing October.

    Tell me more!

    What is the battery life like? (I'm not dissatisfied with my current battery but I cold always use a little more juice).

    What is the new lockscreen?

    I guess I will have to wait a while yet for my O2 branded hox+ to update.

    just got the update. In UK and unbranded.
    It downloaded ok but will not install. Starts to install but then I get a big red question mark then phone just restarts with no update. anyone else get this problem.

    Solved. I had to do a factory reset, but all updated now.

    I'm really liking the new Sense 5 update. Much smoother than before...

    To me, battery life is improved. Don't have stats to back that up, just how it feels!

    Will try to post picture of lockscreen...

    How many hours (roughly) did your phone last before the update? and after?

    I guess the unlocked (non-LTE) fares better than the LTE variant. I'm at a standstill as I'm not sure if I want to swap for the newly reduced price N4 or Moto X. If this update fixes the few issue I usually have (battery/some lag) I might just stay put for another year.

    Needs time but I ain't keen;

    Horrible keyboard
    No weather animation on unlock
    No zoe
    Lock / unlock sound inaudible
    No swipe down to access bookmarks in browser
    Only get a couple of weeks of info on calendar widget.

    Seems like a massive step backwards in terms of functionality just to be a smidge smoother / faster.:(

    I received the O2 UK update on Friday evening. Comments so far:-

    1) A slight improvement on battery life.
    2) Phone overheats less.
    3) Phone feels more responsive.
    3) Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5.0 don't really bring much to the party.

    However, I do think that 1) & 2) are linked. During the summer months my phone regularly overheated and battery life was terrible. Now that the autumn months are here my phone no longer overheats and the battery is lasting longer. I noticed this before the update, but I will say that the upgrade has also improved this noticably. The overheating and battery drain seems to happen when the device is being used for intensive task in temperatures above 18 degreesC.

    My phone has fewer wakelocks since the update to 4.2.2 & therefore the battery lasts longer when not in use.

    I like the sense 5 theming. I think it's more cohesive & up to date than 4+ which seemed to be a jumbled mix of styles to me. In fact I've reverted to the stock launcher because I just like the look of sense 5. It doesn't do much that sense 4 didn't though.

    AT&T released a statement saying Q4 2013 ... so anytime now, although likely December sometime. Hopefully Telus is on the same schedule.
