After looking at my recent posts you may start to wonder whether this is an HTC One blog or one that covers all smartphones. Don't worry, next week will see lots of Samsung news and news from others announcing devices at Mobile World Congress.
As you know the HTC One lasted me a year so far and just extended its life with the rollout of KitKat from T-Mobile. KitKat is now complete for Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T with the AT&T one going live within the week.
The KitKat update brings Android 4.4.2 and Sense 5.5 to the HTC One. The update for T-Mobile was 563.3 MB in size and downloaded without a hitch. I never lost anything in the update and after a day of use everything is working like a champ.
KitKat updates include the following:
There are other features and functions provided in the update that I will continue to discover as I use my HTC One on a daily basis.
In addition to the KitKat update, HTC also provided its latest version of Sense to the HTC One. In my opinion, these are more significant than the KitKat updates and include the following:
The HTC One is now a year old and it gets the latest and greatest Android update, which is a great move for HTC. HTC is the first non-Google company to get the KitKat update out to existing devices and is showing they are ready to support their new HTC Advantage service. I look forward to the 25 March launch event of the new HTC One, but with KitKat and Sense 5.5 on my existing One I am pretty dang satisfied.
