The Extreme power saving mode arrives to the Sprint HTC One (M8) thanks to an update
The Sprint version of HTC's all new flagship, the One (M8), is receiving an update as we speak. Apart from the numerous performance improvements and bug fixes, the update is also toting one of the more interesting features – the Extreme power saving mode.

As you may recall from our review of HTC's latest device, this mode will be automatically activated once your battery reaches a predefined level. When in the Extreme power saving mode, the HTC One (M8) is stripped down from a plethora of its battery-eating features and only allows users to access the most basic ones, such as call making, texting, and manually receiving emails. While under this mode, the smartphone will use roughly 1% of you battery every 3 hours, which is quite an impressive result.

Be advised that the update has started rolling out just today, so it may take a while before it makes its way to your new HTC One (M8).
