HTC One M9 Android 5.1 Lollipop Update – Top Features and Improvements

0

There have been lot of updates implemented to the Android 5.1 Lollipop upgrade that just came out back in the month of March. We finally got the scoop on the upcoming HTC One M9 Android 5.1 Lollipop upgrade.

The HTC One M9 came out in April and it was functioning on the Android 5.0 Lollipop. But ever since its launch, it only got a few upgrades, mostly on maintenance issues. Samsung, LG and Motorola have been focused on rolling out the Android 5.1 as well as the Android 5.1.1, but HTC has been pretty quiet, but not anymore.

The HTC One M9 Android 5.1 Lollipop update started to stir up some waves. With this new update, several bugs and errors have been definitely mended. Even if the Android 5.1 Lollipop update has been long overdue, it was worth the wait because it is now arriving to the HTC One M9. This update is planned to reach Sprint and next in line are the carriers.

Mo Versi claimed that the Sprint HTC One M9 will be the first to get this update (in the US). Those who own such a device will also be amazed by the extra camera enhancements.

The HTC One M9 houses a 20.7 MP rear camera, but the performance is not the best one out there. Both LG G4 and the Galaxy S6 devices have 16 MP cameras included and the results are way better. This is not HTC’s first attempt to solve camera issues, but hopefully it will be the last.

The update will reach Sprint HTC One M9 devices on the 1st of July and may take several days to hit all devices, but be patient because it will get there. AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile will then be next in line to get this update.
