Verizon HTC One (M7) users are now receiving Sense 6 update OTA
The update also brings you a new UI with vivid colors and bold typography. And the camera app will allow you to customize camera settings with updated menu options. A new button lets you access preloaded camera choices. With the changes to the Gallery app, Video Highlights will be available from the top of each section, and you can easily separate pictures using the Timeline, Albums and Location settings.
After installing Sense 6, wallpaper can be changed on the home screen without having to click on settings. You can also bypass settings to change the home screen, and add widgets, apps and shortcuts. The update also improves Wi-Fi connectivity on the phone, and an Emergency Alert app has been added.
It will take 25-30 minutes to download the update, which is coming OTA. Installation should take 10 minutes to 20 minutes, during which time you will not be able to make/take calls. You should be on a Wi-Fi connection for the updating process, with your battery at least 50% powered up.

Got mine yesterday and so far so good performance-wise. My signal seems to be stronger and stable and Blinkfeed is more streamlined. Battery life is the same meaning quite good on my end.
I do wish the weather widget would maintain the transparent black option though instead of going fron white to black depending on time of day. Not really caring for the page markers when swiping through screens, it makes my app shortcuts and widgets seem a little cluttered.

I updated my sister's M7 and ended up spending half the day with it. Really shouldn't treat her phone as if it were mine... but she was screwing around with my M8's front camera so that makes us even.... (actually I bought the phone for her off craigslist.. so in essence it is mine until she pays me back =D)
