HTC One (M8) and One (M7) will get Android 5.0 Lollipop within 90 days from now
HTC just confirmed that it received the final Android 5.0 Lollipop code from Google - so it can now start working on official updates for its One (M8) and One (M7) handsets. According to HTC, both devices will get Lollipop within 90 days from today, November 3. In consequence, users should expect the update to arrive in early February 2015 the latest.

According to a recent report, the Android 5.0 Lollipop for the One (M8) won’t come with Sense 7 UI (allegedly pictured on the left), as rumored not long ago, but with the current Sense 6 UI. Sure enough, we’ll have to wait until the update is actually released to know if this is true or not.

HTC said that details regarding Lollipop updates for other handsets will be announced soon. We’re thinking that most HTC smartphones released this year will get Lollipop eventually. As for those from last year, besides the One (M7), the One mini and One max are likely going to be updated, too. We’ll let you know when we hear more on this.

HTC Advantage is only for flagships! What about other HTC phones?

HTC promised 4.4 within 90 days, too. It took 114 days where it took Motorola only 12.

And At&t still doesn't have 4.4.4 update for the M8 and when the heck will the M8 have screen casting for chromecast? smh

International version got kitkat update as per the schedule and that too before 90 days. It depends on your carrier as well as your region. So you don't need to blame HTC.

HTC GUARANTEED 4.4 FOR ALL CARRIERS WITHIN 90 DAYS. The carriers didn't make the promise, HTC did. So who is to blame? HTC

Motorola is largely stock, whereas Sense is not

Why on earth would it take HTC 10x more time than MOTO, regardless of anything? HTC is just slow and they hate consumers. Look back to how HTC treated Desire HD, Sensation, Amaze, Evo3d users. HTC is the worst company for updates. 90 days is just a soon to be broken promise.

They hate consumers...yet they have a program where if you break your phone, they will fix it for free? And they guarantee software updates by a certain time? They offer an actual ETA. How is that bad?

Motorola Mobility was a subsidiary of Google at the time, in case you don't remember that far back, of course they would finish their updates first!

Sorry. S5 is going to have it in December. There are leaked videos about Samsung's work.

Unlocked version already has latest version. Carrier version always takes longer, a lot longer...

90 days is too long for flagship to get Lollipop, does that mean it will take 90 months to get the update on my Desire 816?

Don't worry 816 will be getting fast updates as it is htc's one of the best selling phone
