HTC One M7 with Sense 6

The unlocked and developer editions of the HTC One M7 are getting an update to install Sense 6 today. The update comes after Canadian One M7 owners received an update to do the same earlier this week. The update weighs in at 668MB and brings a lot of what we've come to love about Sense 6 on the HTC One M8 to the year-old original One.

In addition to a user interface that has been overhauled across the device, the update also brings a refined Blinkfeed, overhauled camera app, and more. Sense 6 also moves the apps into Google Play so HTC can update them without having to push a complete system update for the device.

Updates for the US carrier versions of the HTC One M7 are still showing as being in the certification phase (testing by the carrier, HTC, and more), the final step before deployment to customers. Considering how long the carriers can sometimes take to manage update certifications, it might be a while.

Once you unlocked and developer edition HTC One M7 owners have downloaded the update, let us know what you think!

My UK Unlocked M7 still has no updates available :-( Looks like the UK page says they're still on the "Integration" stage. Article makes it sound like the update is available everywhere, US isn't the world remember!

bigtnew says:

That's debatable.

Maybe if you read a little you wouldn't have to make such ignorant comments.

Your face is ignorant.

His face is a 1...

benthe1 says:

Since 1 also equals 100% I'll take that as a compliment.

ChazTyldsley says:

I did read the article, and not once does it specify the region. US carriers not getting the update yet, sure. But not for the unlocked and dev versions.

Sean Cook3 says:

are this update anvailable to unlocked version in europe ?

Hafid Sama says:

Same question , In France exactly

Kiamat says:

These rapid updates are a great incentive/advertisement for purchasing a unlocked or developer edition directly from HTC rather than getting a carrier subsidized version. Hopefully more people will start buying direct and put pressure on the wireless carriers to dump the bloat and speed up the updates. Personally, I'll never buy a carrier subsidized handset again.

blessedred says:

For the last update we carrier people got the update first. More specifically Sprint.

del913 says:

One would think that the carriers would compete to see who can get it out first sense this is purely on them now

Dogs OfWar says:

Loaded fine on my US 32GB factory unlocked. The only hiccup was I had to remove and re-add my exchange account because it wouldn't sync my contacts.

D13H4RD2L1V3 says:

Great job HTC!

Though I'm already running a Sense 6 custom ROM. If you guys wanna know how it's like, you won't be disappointed. It's a big improvement.

Mikenizme says:

I was just about to say, any improvements with sense 6 ?! Is the battery life better and have they included icelandia theme in the video highlights ?!

D13H4RD2L1V3 says:

There is some improvement in battery life, overall performance improvements and some new features.

Then again, I'm using a custom ROM, so it might be slightly different for you guys.

bonedatt says:
