Sense 6 Rollout to Begin Today for the Sprint HTC One M7

Just a couple days ago, we talked about how the Verizon HTC One M7 was poised to receive its update to Sense 6 some time later this week. Back then, we also speculated that the updates for the Sprint and AT&T models wouldn’t be too far off since HTC listed them listed them as being undergoing certification in their software updates page. Thankfully, this speculation proved to be correct, as Sprint has now begun the process of rolling out the update to consumer devices.

Today’s update comes in at software version 5.03.651.3, and it bumps up the device’s Sense version to 6. And just like the update we saw for the Verizon M7, it brings several new features that were previously exclusive to the M8 along for the ride. This includes new functionality such as Extreme Power Savings mode, an updated UI, a few updated first party apps (Camera, Gallery, TV App), and a refreshed BlinkFeed interface.

The update hasn’t begun rolling out to consumer devices just yet, but it is slated to begin today. However, it’s important to keep in mind that as always, these updates will be delivered in stages that can take several days or more. You can view this update’s release notes over on Sprint’s site and get in on the discussion in this thread.

OnePlus 2 Bares All in New Tear Down Gallery

Last year, the launch of the OnePlus One, dubbed 'the flagship killer', visibly shook the foundations of the mobile OEM sphere, with OnePlus delivering high-end flagships specs at a very affordable price. The initial launch phase was met with mixed feelings after a few controversial marketing tactics, but they eventually gave way to strong sales figures.   Earlier this week, OnePlus went on to unveil the successor to the One, and while the device continues to offer top-of-the-line specs at...

Focus – An Attractive But Raw Gallery Replacement

Focus is an attractive new app built by XDA members Liam Spradlin and Francisco Franco, the latter being well-known in the forums for his kernels. Focus aims to completely replace your gallery app with some neat tricks, but at a potentially risky time considering that Google has thrown its weight into the photo-organization arena. This is a first draft of the app of course, but we'll pitch it against its main rivals here, namely the popular QuickPic and the aforementioned Google Photos.     The first...
