HTC One Sense 5.5 update will bring you extra 25 GB of Google Drive storage for free

HTC One Sense 5.5 update will bring you extra 25 GB of Google Drive storage for free
The Android 4.3 update for your HTC One is rolling out in full force, and with it the new Sense 5.5 interface that makes a debut on the One Max phablet. Not only do you get the ability to switch off the BlinkFeed news aggregator with 5.5, but you can also claim 25 GB for free in Google Drive cloud storage.

That's right, in addition to the 15 GB already available to you with your Google account, there will be a freebie of 25 GB more, courtesy of HTC, for a grand total of 40 GB. Not to mention that in Sense 5.5 your Google Drive storage is integrated in the HTC Backup application, so you can now use 40 GB for the purpose. 

Claiming this space is as easy as clicking the "Redeem" button upon starting the Google Drive app in Sense 5.5 on your HTC One, and the offer is good for two years, as long as you claim the extra 25 gigs before January 1, 2016. The offer is off the table for the HTC One Developer Edition, due to the unlocked bootloader.

Expect the one x to not receive this update. They would probably release a last minor update to get rid of the battery and WiFi issue

The only thing keeping me from not buying the one is the camera.

Olster85, I'd say go for it... I've got the One and it's camera may not be the very best out there, but it's very nice! I'm actually very impressed with it's lowlight/indoor pics and the color accuracy it has. It's even a bit better on many occasions as my iPhone 5S on the color accuracy! Do it! you won't be disappointed!

you can check it in settings - about - software information and if you can turn off the blinkfeed then you have sense 5.5
