    So I've been poking around Sense 6.0 and my first impressions are that it's a very nice update. Sense 5-5.5 were the only skins I actually liked and Sense 6 is even better. I realize design is really subjective but like the subtle changes HTC implemented--font has changed, seems more crisp to me and everything else seems a bit brighter. Could be my imagination as I no longer have Sense 5.5 to compare to. ;)

    Blinkfeed seems more robust, especially content-wise. Also love the fact that they finally added a 'close all' button to the recent apps/mulit-tasking tray.

    Can't recall if it was previously an option but you can now have certain notifications displayed on the lock screen (phone, voice mail, SMS, email, calendar). Of course, you can use another lock screen widget of choice.

    I'll dig deeper into some of the other specified changes later but so far, seems like a worthwhile upgrade.

    Why does my HTC hide certain applications? That I didn't know were there and can contacts automatically sync to a new phone ? Need help understanding how this could happen . Marriage depends on me finding a answer.

    Realize there probably aren't many of us left who own these devices but figured I'd share.

    Lollipop is now rolling out to HTC One M7 Developer and Unlocked editions

    Downloaded and updated my M7 Dev Edition this morning. Seems nice at first glance but to be honest, not a whole lot different considering it's still skinned with Sense and so many apps have already received a Material Design refresh.

    Regardless, nice to see HTC still supporting/updating a nearly 2 year old device. Keep it up HTC. :D

    I don't have mine anymore. It's good that HTC updated it with the new OS. Even though it took them a few months to do so.

    I must admit the m7 was a pretty bad arse phone, I had one for Sprint, now have the note 4.

    Miss it a little won't lie.
