HTC basically programs the phone to aggressively kill apps to save battery. Problem is that they close and reopen over and over so fast that it actually lags the phone. iOS is great because you can just close the apps out in the tray and they are done. So much easier.
Yeah I've had all these issues as well, and the fragmentation/JB issue is a big one. HTC One X and GSIII will likely get updates, but everything else? It's doubtful. At some point, the fragmentation will catch up with the superphones as well, only the Nexus devices will get every update, but those are underwhelming phones imo (Galaxy Nexus currently has the worst camera of any top end phone).
