T-Mobile HTC One (M7) to get Android 5.0 update on March 10th

T-Mobile HTC One (M7) to get Android 5.0 update on March 10th
A tweet sent today from HTC VP of product management Mo Versi reveals when T-Mobile customers with the HTC One (M7) will start receiving the Android 5.0 update. That date is March 10th, which is this coming Tuesday. The update brings the Material Design look of Android 5.0, Lock Screen notifications, longer battery life with Project Volta, the new "Recent Apps" menu, and the 64-bit ART compiler that helps apps open faster.

Trust us when we tell you that this is a rather hefty update. You are definitely best served by connecting to a Wi-Fi network while downloading and installing it. And you should make sure that the batteries on your phone are charged to at least 50%.

Since the update is going out OTA, it is sent out in waves. If you are a T-Mobile customer with the HTC One (M7) and the update doesn't arrive for a few days, there is no need to panic or stick needles in your John Legere vodoo doll. The update will arrive.

Wtf, if T-mobile is able to update their M7 before AT&T is able to update their M8. AT&T step up you slow asses stop pre loading craps that no one uses and push out the updates that are for the phones.

HTC is killing it with the software updates. Just another reason to go with an HTC device if you already like what they have to offer.

I have to give props to HTC if for nothing else, than the fact that they're supporting this device well. Don't forget it started off on Jelly Bean!
