Verizon’s HTC One M8 has been late to the Lollipop party, but as we always say it’s better late than never. The upgrade is now rolling out to users, Verizon has announced. There isn’t much different here compared to what we’ve seen from other variants.
HTC’s version of Lollipop implements the new notifications and recent apps multitasking as it was imagined in Android 5.0 Lollipop. They’ve also taken care to update many of their apps with Material Design and make it possible to search through settings using a built-in search box.
Beyond that, Verizon has enabled Band 4 LTE roaming, and has also made improvements to the device’s 3-way calling feature. Verizon says to keep an eye out for software version SU4A – 3.28.605.9, SU4B – 4.17.605.5. That’s a mouthful, but when you receive Android 5.0 Lollipop, you’ll know it. Be sure to hop on WiFi with a charged battery to check for it at your earliest convenience.
