You may recall that just a few days ago, we saw a Sense 6-laden update roll out for the developer and unlocked HTC One. And a few months prior, we saw an update make its way to the Sprint HTC One M8 (2014), which brought the new Extreme Power Savings Mode. Now, two very similar updates are making their rounds to the T-Mobile HTC One M7 and T-Mobile HTC One (M8), respectively.
First up, we have the last generation HTC One M7 on T-Mobile, which is now the first carrier-branded M7 to receive Sense 6. This OTA updates your device to software version 5.14.531.1, up from the previously available 4.19.531.10. It comes in at a rather hefty 695 MB, which is to be expected given that this brings the device to Sens. . . READ ON »

Just under a month ago, we talked about how HTC updated it software update page to display its progress in delivering Sense 6 to previous generation devices such as the HTC One M7. In the time since, we’ve seen certain variants of the the HTC One Max receive the update, and that only left us wondering when the previous One M7 would get to enjoy the Sense 6 goods as well.
Luckily, the time is now, as HTC has begun rolling out a Sense 6-laden update to developer and unlocked variants of the HTC One M7. This update comes in at software version 5.11.1540.9, and it brings most of the HTC One M8 (2014)’s software features to the M7. For a refresher, Sense 6 includes an updated UI color palate and support fo. . . READ ON »

Back at the tail end of last month, we talked about how HTC had updated its software update pages to display their progress in bringing Sense 6 to older devices. At the time, every available HTC One Max variant and practically all of the M7 devices were receiving carrier bloatware as part of the “integration” stage.
Now less than one month later, almost all of these devices are prepping for release in the “certification” phase. However, one stands above the rest in receiving the Sense 6 update first, and that’s Sprint variant of the HTC One Max.
The update, which first began making its way to consumer devices earlier today, comes in at software version 3.. . . READ ON »

The HTC Droid DNA is Verizon’s close cousin to the Japanese HTC Butterfly. It launched all the way back at the tail end of 2012 with Android 4.1, which has since been officially updated to 4.2.2. Now, the device is about to skip over 4.3, and jump straight Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
Droid DNA now have reason to rejoice, as HTC has received technical approval for its Android 4.4.2 + Sense 5.5 update on the DNA. As expected, this is not going to be the same software that is seen on the latest generation HTC One M8, but rather more similar to the M7’s Sense 5.5 + Android 4.4.2 builds. The news on the upcoming update comes direct from Executive Director, Product Management Mohammed Versi who wrote the fol. . . READ ON »

Now that HTC’s previous generation flagship devices are all enjoying their official upgrades to Android 4.4 KitKat, many have begun to wonder when these devices would receive the latest iteration of HTC’s Sense UI. First seen on the HTC One M8, Sense 6 brings many key refinements to the Taiwanese OEM’s signature interface such as a heavily updated launcher, improved aesthetics, and much more.
You may recall that about a month ago, HTC’s Sense 6 update plans were leaked out for various last generation devices such as the HTC One M7. The leak’s proposed timetable was then officially confirmed for the M7, with the date being set for some time next month. Now, HTC has gone ahead a. . . READ ON »

Some time ago, we caught an early glimpse of where Samsung may be heading with its UI design. We later saw a few more hints of this upcoming UI, but unfortunately this has not made its way to consumer devices just yet. Now, a leaked video has appeared, showing what HTC is cooking in its UI design labs, and to say it looks nice would be quite the understatement.. . . READ ON »

The HTC Desire HD has quite the history. With a 4.3-inch screen on the outside and a single core 1GHz CPU on the inside, it became available all the way back in 2010, rocking some truly ancient software that’ll challenge even the most studious of historians—namely Android 2.2 Froyo and HTC Sense 2.0. It was upgradeable to Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Sense 3.0, and was graciously promised by HTC an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwhich. Unfortunately, HTC didn’t keep their promise and backpedaled, essentially crushing any hope for Desire HD owners to experience the benefits of later, official releases.

It’s pretty much a proven, scientific fact that the HTC Pico (a.k.a. Explorer) is one heck of a trooper. Its 3.2 inch screen, 600 MHz processor, and 512 MB of RAM have seen more action than the latest and greatest devices out on the market right now. Having marched past Sense 4.0 without batting an eye, having Firefox OS for breakfast, and conquering dual booting, the Pico can now proudly boast Sense 5.0 on the trophy shelf.
Accomplished by XDA Senior Member xaak, Sense 5.0 has been ported from the HTC Desire 500 and 600 to the Pico. With the port, HTC Pico users will now be able to enjoy the many revamped and new features that few legacy devices get to enjoy, such as a slicker user interface and Blinkfeed. Also, a . . . READ ON »
