T-Mobile to update the HTC One (M8) on Feb 9; Sprint updates the HTC One (M7) first

T-Mobile to update the HTC One (M8) on Feb 9; Sprint updates the HTC One (M7) first
HTC VP of product management Mo Versi is at it again. A tweet he sent out on Friday evening reveals that T-Mobile owners with the HTC One (M8) will start receiving the Android 5.0 update on Monday. Since the update is being sent out in waves, many of you will not receive it immediately. Don't be depressed or threaten to jump. The update will arrive.

Meanwhile, the Lollipop update happens to be rolling out to Sprint customers with the HTC One (M7). Last Thursday, we showed you a leaked memo that showed Sprint customers with the HTC One (M7) receiving the update starting that very day. Surprisingly, the carrier's HTC One (M8) won't receive the latest Android build until February 13th. And that includes the Harman Kardon edition of the phone.

One of our loyal readers just happened to turn on his Sprint branded HTC One (M7) on Saturday and found the Android 5.0.2 update on his phone. You can check out the images he sent us by clicking on the slideshow below. Remember that when you do receive the notification that your phone has received Android 5.0, make sure that you're using a Wi-Fi network while downloading and installing it. At the same time, your battery should be at least 50% charged.

Thanks for the tip, Nevo617!

Well that's good news. All that's left is Sense 7 and the M9.

Reason why I got rid of my LG Spectrum 2, the phone would be lucky to get some OS update in a timely fashion. Though I'm sure LG G2 and G3 have a much improved update path and timeline so no need to worry.

Both Verizon and AT&T are bloatware/ trialware heavy so it'll take some time to make sure the updates are full of them and that they (bloatware) work... for the most part.

So true. That's 1 thing I hated about Verizon. All that money I was paying & had to put up with so much crap on my phone that ruins the Android experience. & getting the Galaxy Nexus didn't help much because Google didn't support the phone like I had expected.

Excellent. Phone is slower, network connection is slower and battery is draining faster. This seems like a good update.
