HTC One (M8) caught on video running Android 5.0.1 Lollipop with Sense UI on top
HTC promised it will be updating the flagship One (M8) with Android 5.0 Lollipop by the end of this month when it got Google's source code at the beginning of November, and the project is gearing up for a release, it seems. We already saw the original One running the update, and other HTC notables have also been scheduled, such as the One mini 2, for instance. 

We are now being treated, a week or two before the general release away, to a video of the HTC One (M8) running a non-final Android 5.0 Lollipop update with HTC's Sense UI sprinkled on top. If you have been wondering how the update will look like and perform, this here should be pretty close to the real thing that will hit your handset in the next few weeks, so take a gander below.

For some reason, I don't like how Sense looks like on Lollipop. But for sure, that Sense is damn smooth and fast!

My thoughts exactly. Apparently it'll receive Sense 7 later on.

Yup. Its probably because it goes a lot against Material Design's principles. If you notice in Android L the apps slide up from bottom of your phone. That doesn't happen here. Also, Material design has a nice white theme to it. This one seems more based around black. Also I see no round bubble which gives a material floating feel. The colour selection also seems pretty grim. All in all I think Samsung did a better job on Android L then Sense.

sense is becoming more and more ugly with each update. Flat is not cool, it's so boring. And get rid of the colors on personalize, they look horrible

Android 5.0 with Sense 6 on top looks OK, but the design of M8 is ugly as hell that it makes me puke, thanks to those ugly bezels and unacceptable thickness.

They should use capacitive buttons, and set the HTC logo as the home button...

A Sony and Apple fan talking about bezels... Nice joke.

9. Cyagocaliz unregistered

Sony succeeded to make the bezels of their phones thin. In the case of Apple, actually iPhone has a physical home button whyle none of the current HTC devices doesn't, and is increbly thin so they have to make a space to put the battery, therefore it can't be helped that it has huge bezels. Besides, HTC phones has thicker bezels than iPhone.

False, the iPhone 6 has a 4,7" screen and it is taller than an HTC One M7, considering the M7 has to fit the two speakers on the front while the iBezel has to fit a home button. The Sony Z1 is 2mm shorter but 4mm wider than an M8 while having the same 5" diagonal.

Why do you compare old phone and new phone? It should be like 'HTC One mini 2 VS iPhone 6' Then you will find which phone has plain bezels ;)

I'm comparing phones of the same screen size and category, you're comparing phones of different screen sizes and different categories (high end vs mid range). Try to use your brain for a bit it won't hurt you.

Haha, look at Z3 Compact bezels and then think again. M8 design sucks because of that black useless frame.

Because a phone's design is solely the phone's front.. Many people have held my M8 and none has commented the design sucks, quite the contrary, even iPhone 6 owners admit its prettier than the iPhone 6. But who am i to argue against fanboys? (Not saying im not one)

canyouseethelight, totally agree with you everyone looking or holding my phone would have hands on with it longer because of the beautiful design

If you've got the developer or unlocked edition of the HTC One M8, check for a system update. Android 5.0 Lollipop is now available. The update — software version 4.16.1540.8, if you're interested in such things — weighs in at 584 megabytes. The official changelog reads thusly: Android 5.0 Lollipop update Lock screen and notification: New Lollipop UI style with enhanced privacy features Recent apps: Supporting multiple pages Addition of search function within settings The update was confirmed by HTC, which said it should start pushing "tonight." Obviously, however, we're seeing it a little sooner than that.
