    If you can remember it from the torrent of news that was Google I/O 2014, HTC announced that its 2013 and 2014 flagships would be seeing prompt updates to the latest version of Android after the availability of final code in the fall. Well, fall's here (and with it, the day we've all been waiting for), and HTC has finally confirmed to the masses that final Lollipop code is in its hands, and the 90-day timer for the HTC One M8 Lollipop update has officially begun. First up for the update will likely be HTC's Google Play Edition One M8, considering the fact that it runs an unadulterated ...

    Good news for those of you toting a European original HTC One (or One M7, if that's how you'd like to call it): the European HTC One M7 Android 4.4.3 update has been approved by HTC and is now rolling out to users, starting in areas like Romania and Slovakia. The Android 4.4.3 update includes the security fixes from Android 4.4.4, so you need not worry that you aren't running the latest version of Android after taking the update yourself. This update will more than likely be one of the One M7's last ever, though it's certainly possible (and some might even say likely) that it will receive ...

    HTC historically has not been good with software updates, neglecting updates for many phones and not meeting update deadlines, but it's mostly changed its tune since the launch of the One M7. It has even committed to update the One M7 and One M8 to Android L promptly, and its Google Play edition models will also get the same love. A new leaked HTC software roadmap shows us that those devices aren't the only ones rapidly getting the updates though, as others such as the Butterfly S and Desire 610 could also possibly get it as early as this year. Before we hop on into Android L plans, let's ...

    Probably one of the biggest disappointments of owning any smartphone from a carrier, is how long it'll take all of us to enjoy software updates. The fact that there is an additional middleman between you and your latest and greatest Android experience can be frustrating, and still, we have seen some dramatic improvements this year. HTC is one of the companies that's done significant improvements in this manner, and today we get more good news. If you're currently rocking the HTC One M7, which is one of the smartphones that we most praised last year, you'll love the fact that HTC is giving ...

    If nothing else, HTC has always been renowned for its keen sense of design. Its software may have taken a detour down a treacherous path, but the hardware has rarely ever let us down. The Nexus One, One X, One M7, One M8, One S, DROID DNA, DROID Incredible, and many of the in-between devices were all rather pretty and built exceptionally well. (We'll go ahead and forget the ThunderBolt, Rezound, and Inspire 4G existed, Deal? Deal.) In particular, though, HTC has been on a hot streak for the last year and a half. The One M7 was – and still is by many – considered to be one of the most ...

    One of the commitments HTC made with its 2013 flagship, the One M7, was that it would provide timely updates for the device, even carrier-bloated versions. It seems to be delivering fairly well, and though it has been about two months since the debut of Sense 6, we are now starting to see it trickle out to different One M7 variants (the first were the developer and unlocked versions, then the T-Mobile one). The latest one to grab the update is the Verizon variant, which is a bit of a shocker. Verizon typically has been one of the slowest carriers out there in terms of updating their ...

    Sense 5 was a breath of fresh air on last year's HTC flagship and in 2014, the Taiwanese phone-maker further improved in its own custom user interface, bringing Sense 6 to the HTC One (M8). Some HTC One (M7) users have already received their Sense 6 update in different regions, but according to reports, it should be available in more markets now. The Sense 6 update has been reported as available in countries of Europe. Owners of unlocked HTC One (M7) devices in Albania, Croatia, Finland, France, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and UK are getting most of the goodies found on the One (M8), ...

    HTC can't win for losing, it seems. Despite creating some of the most gorgeous smartphones the market has seen in the last several years, its revenues, market share, and mind share have been uncontrollably slipping, while competitors like Apple and Samsung only seem to rake in the collective losses of all the struggling companies. This year, things could be looking up. The One M8 has received stellar reviews across the board, despite the mediocre camera. And at least so far, it appears to be selling well, despite the Galaxy S 5. No less, the company can't manage to dig itself out of this ...

    After I wrapped-up my review of the Verizon model of the One M8, I popped my personal SIM back in the Nexus 5. I used it for about a week and was mostly satisfied, but it didn't take long for me to start missing the One M8. I thought switching back to what has been my favorite smartphone for the better part of the last eight months, the Moto X, might subdue my need for HTC's shiny, new phone. And it did – again, only for a few days. I had missed the Moto X and the way it perfectly glides into the palm of your hand, the tiny dimple on the back, and especially Touchless Control. But it ...
