HTC One Android 4.4 Kitkat review after update

By Alan Ng - Dec 3, 2013

We have some good news for those of you with a HTC One handset. It should have been a very happy Thanksgiving weekend for a lot of you, as HTC are now in the midst of a rollout for the HTC One Android 4.4 Kitkat update. Most of you should have the update already, but if not HTC may just have granted you an update through this week.

The Android 4.4 Kitkat update initially went live for those with a HTC One developer edition. HTC then opened the gates to those with Google’s version of the device, before eventually allowing everyone else to join in on the fun.

As far as we’re aware, unlocked models will get priority, so you may still be waiting if you are attached to a HTC One carrier version – specifically those waiting for an HTC One Android 4.4 update on Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile.

For those that do have it though, your initial thoughts after that lovely boot up animation could be that there is not much change compared to Android 4.3. We have picked out a couple of videos for you to check out, one of which is a brief Android 4.4 Kitkat review from one user who has already updated his HTC One over the weekend.

Sense UI fans will also be pleased to know that Android 4.4 Kitkat will be running alongside Sense 5.5, so let us know what you think of that combination.

Do you have Kitkat on the HTC One yet, or are you still waiting?

    That’s good to read that I will get Sense 5.5 along with Kit Kat. I however am tied to Sprint and as usual they are taking their sweet time rolling it out. This is not a terrible thing as several apps on my Nexus 7 quit working after the Kit Kat version was installed. Developers of these apps have already provided the necessary updates to make them now work in Kit Kat. This will make the transition smooth once carriers roll it out. It’s depressing to wait for an upgrade to a phone that already works great and then after the long awaited upgrade certain apps no longer work. Once the Kit Kat upgrade is released several of our apps (on our phone) will be upgraded to allow them to work.
