HTC One (M8) and HTC One (M7) Google Play editions start to receive Android 5.0.1

The updates weigh in at a hefty 500MB, which means that you might want to make sure that your phone has a Wi-Fi connection before downloading it. Also, with such a large file, you should make sure that your battery is charged to at least 50% before you start the updating process. Having your phone go dead in the middle of downloading the update could have some negative consequences.
Keep in mind that the OTA update is sent out in phases, so if the update to Android 5.0.1 doesn't reach your phone today, perhaps it will by tomorrow. It's just a matter of being patient. Your HTC One (M8) and HTC One (M7) Google Play edition will eventually be running Android 5.0.1.

I'm really curious about battery life because my friend with Nexus 5 says it sucks even more now with Lollipop. Project Volta? Nice name

I had the same issue with my Nexus 5 after I updated. Then I disabled the email sync frequency as it was eating all the battery. Now I have absolutely no issues with the battery life. My data connection is never turned off and I also get a lot of calls since it is my official sim. But still the battery lasts for a complete day. Maybe even more if I don't use intense data/WiFi.

Enjoying lollipop on m7 since over a week(unofficial) and its smooth as butter. Just few random reboots. And the sot is around 4hrs. If sync is off or if put on power saver mode it will last long just the phone will lag. Can't wait to see this to be ported directly to non gpe devices.

I have an unlocked (non-GPE) One (M7). With previous upgrades, HTC rolled out the upgrade to the unlocked phones at the same time they sent the GPE versions. So far, no joy for my unlocked One. :-(
