HTC’s still readying the upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop for their HTC One M8 to meet a 90-day deadline, but if you were wondering how the upgrade was coming along we have our latest look. Earlier leaked screenshots gave us a look at how things looked, and now we can see much of the same in action.

Not much has changed at first glance. It’s still Lollipop with Sense 6.0, which means you get newly-styled notifications, the new recent apps switcher, and Material Design throughout much of the firmware’s apps. Things are looking quite smooth and stable as the HTC One M8’s Snapdragon 801 chipset seems to be handling the new goods just fine.

Unfortunately the upgrade is taking longer than HTC’s early January estimation, but considering the Lollipop source code was officially released on November 3rd they still have just under a month to meet their original promise.

They don’t have an updated time frame just yet, but we imagine they won’t want to void that HTC Advantage they’ve been touting. In the meantime feel free to satisfy your appetite for Lollipop by checking out the video above.
