Verizon HTC One max is now receiving Android 4.4.2 KitKat

Verizon HTC One max is now receiving Android 4.4.2 KitKat
All those who sport an HTC One max with Verizon's service should be more than glad to know that the phablet is now getting the KitKat treatment, as Android 4.4.2 + Sense 5.5 are being pushed as an over-the-air update. The exact build number of the update is 2.16.605.2 and it's 320.1 MB in size.

Thanks to the KitKat upgrade, users of the Verizon HTC One max will benefit from an improved location settings menu. It will come with a master switch that allows users to turn all location-based settings on or off simultaneously. In addition, every app that makes use of the location services will be included in a list, which will also show an estimated battery usage of each app. Last, but not least is a completely new feature, which allows you to choose among several profiles for the location services – High accuracy, which uses of the most battery, Battery saving, which provides longer batter life, and Device sensors, which leaves only the GPS operational.

Additionally, a lot of issues and bugs have been resolved. Among the most notable ones is the fix for the LED light, which now notifies users for any pending messages, emails, or missed calls. Furthermore, the existing issues with the copy function have been fixed, as well. Improvements in the OTA updates department have been made, too.

Verizon has also decided to pre-load several of its own services on the One max with the KitKat firmware upgrade. The list includes Verizon Cloud, Verizon Location Agent, and Verizon Support and Protect.

The update has started rolling out today, so be advised that your HTC One max might not be among the first wave that gets Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
