Android 4.3 with Sense 5.5 Rolling Out to the HTC One Mini, OTA Captured!

You might remember that just under two months ago, the flagship HTC One received an update to Android 4.3 with Sense 5.5, which allowed users to disable BlinkFeed once and for all. Well, a very similar update has now started rolling out to the One’s little brother, the , and it packs many nice additions.

As expected, this update brings many improvements along with the increased Android version. For starters, the company’s trademark custom skin, HTC Sense, has been updated to version 5.5, which was originally seen on the gargantuan HTC One Max. This brings multitasking UI improvements, an updated interface to its video highlights feature, improvements to the media player, and more. However, the biggest whammy is how the new update finally lets you disable BlinkFeed.

The update registers as firmware version 2.12.401.1, and it comes in at a sizeable 630.55 MB. As expected, the update is being rolled out gradually, so not every device will have access to the update initially. In fact, it appears that only European users are receiving this current wave. However, for those not keen on waiting, XDA Forum Member vrvr has not only mirrored the OTA update, but he has also taken a System Dump of the updated firmware.

If you’re an end user looking to get in on the action early, or if you’re a developer looking to make builds based on the newest OTA, be sure to make your way over to the original thread to get started!

[Many thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
