Sprint HTC One M9 to receive Android Marshmallow update in the middle of next week
If are a Sprint customer rocking the HTC One M9, we have some pleasant news for you courtesy of HTC's VP of Product Management. That would be none other than Mo Versi, whose tweets have often graced our pages. On Friday, Versi received an inquiry about the Android 6.0 update for the Sprint branded HTC One M9. The executive responded with a tweet stating that the update is targeted for the middle of next week.

Android 6.0 includes Doze, which puts an inactive Android phone into a deep sleep in order to increase standby time and improve battery life. The update also changes requests for app permissions, allowing users to give or deny permission on a feature-by-feature basis. And Google Now on Tap offers search responses based on the content on the screen at the time the search request is made.

Besides Sprint, the HTC One M9 will start receiving the Android 6.0 update on Monday for customers of Canadian carriers  Sasktel, Rogers, Wind, and Videotron. Once you receive the notification that the update has arrived, before downloading and installing it you need to make sure that you're connected to a Wi-Fi signal. Also, you should make sure that your battery is charged to at least 50%.

In reality it is for the One M8 as well, not just the One M9. Note that Mo Versi confirms that to Nole Mario who has an M8.

Agreed. The M9 is a hot mess, with a far too high price tag and a camera that can never keep up.

How many m9 unit sold so far? I expected earlier than this since the low sales volume?

Design and Build - almost nothing new but has IPX3 splashproof
Display - bad calibration
Camera - even worse than the 2 flagships before it, the worst ever so to speak.
Sound - great, BoomSound is always the go to.
Storage - good, futureproof as it's going to support 2TB SD card
Performance - throttling and overheating
UI - Sense was starting to lag behind TW and LG UI since Sense 6 when it comes to functionality, Sense 7 offered nothing new..

I can't find a reason to buy the M9.. it's just a beautiful disaster.

It feels like the Lollipop rollout was faster than Marshmallow...
