HTC is hard on Updates, Today the unlocked version of the HTC One M8 is now getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA (Over-the-air) Update in Malaysia and some other parts of Asia.
The 650MB update brings along new multitasking and lock screens, as well as changes to notifications interface. The HTC Sense UI, however, remains largely unchanged, as it's still based on Sense 6.0.
The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer had earlier promised that the One M8 will receive Android Lollipop "within 90 days of receiving final software from Google." While the Google Play Edition of the device started receiving the update last month, the Developer Edition got updated last week.

After UAE, now Malaysia and France have begun to receive Samsung's Nougat 7.0 update for the Galaxy S7 Edge. Compared to the speed at which Samsung was rolling Marshmallow to the Galaxy S6 line-up in 2016, it has been admittedly faster this year. In France, Orange (local carrier) was reported to roll out the OTA update to the S7 Edges, starting from 25th January. Unfortunately, the regular Galaxy S7 has not been so lucky in these regions so far.
You can always check manually from the About device section of your phone to see if the update has arrived on your phone. In case it hasn't arrived yet, don't worry as these updates are rolled out in batches and that's why it often takes a bit of time before reaching every eligible handset. However, if you are impatient, then check our firmware section to find the right files for your version of the S7 Edge. If you are new to this, do check the tutorial as well before flashing the ROM files though.
