HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge+ With Android 5.1 Lollipop Update
As soon as the Stagefright exploit was found, a lot of Android users feared that their devices are going to be hacked. Shortly after that, Google came and announced that they are working on fixing this exploit and that they are going to send the patch to the carrier partners.
The Android 5.1 Lollipop OTA update is already available for the HTC One M9 owners that signed a contract with Verizon.
The HTC One M9 is currently running on Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, which means that the device has all the Lollipop features, such as the new Material Design, support for lock screen notifications, smart lock, screen pinning, support for 64bit processors, battery saver, improved battery stats and many more.
So, in case you have the HTC One M9 device attached to the Verizon carrier, there is a high chance that you already have the Android 5.1 update available for download. You should get notified whenever the update is available, but in case you didn’t receive it yet, you can always check it manually from Settings->About Phone->Software Updates->Check Now.
Since the update is pretty big, we suggest you to do it when you are connected to a Wi-Fi network. This way, you will not consume all the mobile data that you have from Verizon.
