If you have an HTC smartphone and you still don’t have Lollipop, you’re probably wondering how long until you can receive the official update to the new version of the operating system. Well, now it seems that it is a little closer. At least we now know that the company would skip Android 5.0.2 to go straight to Android 5.1 in its upgrade to Sense 7.
Lollipop: full of problems
There is not a single manufacturer who has not encountered problems when updating to Android 5.0 Lollipop and later versions. Although Google has already released two after the original one that supposedly solved the problems of this one, the truth is that companies continue to find instability problems, as well as inconsistencies in the software that prevent them from programming a firmware with the characteristics necessary to run smoothly on your smartphones. HTC, like many others, has suffered from this problem, and it is going to face it like not a few, skipping these “faulty” versions.
Updating to Android 5.1
First it was Android 5.0 Lollipop. While the companies were working on this update, Android 5.0.1 arrived, but it still did not solve all the problems that had arisen in relation to the instability that this new version of the operating system was generating, so Android 5.0.2 arrived, which was the that, in theory, the companies were going to use for their new smartphones, as in the case of the Samsung Galaxy S6. In fact, the HTC One M9 that is already available on the market already has this version. However, it is not what will happen or with the HTC smartphones that are going to update soon. These would forget about Android 5.0.2 and its possible problems to receive Sense 7 based directly on Android 5.1. Among the list of those smartphones we would find the HTC One M8, the HTC One M8s, the HTC Desire Eye and the HTC Butterfly 2, although there will also be some more. In any case, it can be interpreted as positive news, since there are many users who are not happy with Lollipop due to the slowdowns it generates and that, in theory, are no longer present in the latest version.
