HTC targets January 25th to start sending out Android 6.0 to the T-Mobile HTC One (M8)

HTC targets January 25th to start sending out Android 6.0 to the T-Mobile HTC One (M8)
A week from tomorrow is January 25th and that is the date when T-Mobile subscribers sporting the HTC One (M8) could start receiving Android 6.0 via an OTA update. A tweet sent out on Friday by Mo Versi, HTC's VP of Product Management, said that the update is still in the lab. He added that there is a January 25th target for its dissemination.

This could be the last major update for the HTC One (M8), which was launched with Android 4.4 pre-installed back in March, 2014. Since then, the phone has been updated to Android 4.4.3 and Android 5.0, Android 6.0 brings with it Doze, which extends the battery life of the phone by putting it in a deep sleep state when it is not being used. Google Now on Tap will show search results based on the content appearing on  the screen at the time the search request is made, and a change to app permissions allows them to be granted or denied on a feature-by-feature basis.

Before starting the updating process, HTC One (M8) owners on T-Mobile should make sure that they have hooked up with a Wi-Fi network. Additionally, the battery on the device should be charged to at least 50%.

The T-Mobile branded HTC One (M8) could be updated to Android 6.0 starting on January 25th

Your logic here is non-existent.

"My phone has yet to get Marshmallow, so I'm going to switch to another phone that doesn't have Marshmallow either & will probably get it after my current phone does."

Yup. You're a smart guy.
