Answering to a customer inquiry on Twitter, HTC Product Manager for the Americas Mo Versi said M8 users should expect Sense 7 to come with the next software update.
Versi didn’t provide any details on the actual availability of this “next software update,” but our guess is we should see it within a few weeks. Sense 7 delivers relatively few changes in terms of appearance, while new features include a comprehensive Theming app, the Home widget, which groups your most frequently used apps, as well as some personalization features added to HTC’s well-known BlinkFeed. Performance improvements and bug fixes are to be expected.[related_videos align=”center” type=”custom” videos=”596037,591241,596131″]
The One M8 remains a top choice for HTC fans. Available at a smaller price, but quite similar to the M9 in terms of performance and features, the device shines through its design. And, for American customers, HTC is throwing in a very nice perk with the Uh-Oh extended warranty plan, which includes a free replacement in the first year or $100 in credit towards the purchase of a new HTC One phone.
