HTC One M7 gets the ball rolling with Android 5.0.2 update in Europe

HTC One M7 gets the ball rolling with Android 5.0.2 update in Europe
If you have an unlocked HTC One (M7), or a One (M7) Developer edition, you have probably gotten the Android 5.0 Lollipop prompt, as HTC sent it out in the beginning of the month. Now, European users are reporting that their HTC One handsets are being updated over the air with Android 5.0.2 as we speak, too. The ROM version appears to be 7.19.401.2, and it is quite hefty at 804.8 MB of update flesh.

The One (M7) is almost 2 years old now. It was launched in March 2013, running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and remains a very nice smartphone - that is, if you don't mind the fact that it features a Snapdragon 600 processor, and a 4 MP UltraPixel rear camera. With the HTC One (M9) expected to be announced later this week, the One (M7) is cheaper than ever: you can actually buy it off-contract for as low as $149, which is an amazing price for a branded handset with 1080p display, stereo speakers, and, now, with Lollipop.

HTC said they will update the One line up for 2years and March is few days away so I doubt we will see M7 get update beyond 5.0.2 Unless major bug.

In the US it's exclusive to Best Buy. Along with my M8 I have a used M7 in blue and it's definitely unique. It glows brightly in certain lighting and reminds me of the old Subaru WRX STi I used to drive.

Everyone major OEM is releasing their Android L. While we are just the first leaks of Sony's take on Android L. No wonder they considering exiting from smartphone business. They are bad at it ! Rather then giving Bond millions to feature their phone they should've invested that money in developers who can at least retain the existing customer base by timely updates.

Really that is the reason? God you people are not very smart. Out of all the major OEM Sony does not have carrier support in the US. That make a huge different. That is why they can sell. Go on the street and ask 10 random people what is android 5.0 and maybe 3 or 4 people know.
