HTC One M7 Lollipop Update Android 5.0.2 Is Buggy?

Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update for HTC One M7 dual sim variant is finally rolling out after months of wait. It’s unknown if this is a global roll out or if it is only for certain regions just yet but we aren’t seeing very many good reports from users about the update so far.

The Dual SIM variant of the HTC One M7 was released back in August of 2013. HTC has seemed to be very picky about which devices they are planning to update with Lollipop so anyone with this model of the M7 should be excited about finally getting updated to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. While some were hoping that since they waited this long, they would be updated directly to Android 5.1.1 but this doesn’t seem to be the case just yet. This OTA update will bring your software version up to 7.17.720.6 and its weighs in at 674.38MB in size.

 

HTC One M7 Android 5.0 Lollipop Update Has Issues?

Dual SIM HTC One M7 Receives its First Lollipop UpdateUsers can expect to get all of the features that have been included in HTC’s previous One M7 Lollipop update. So you can look forward to a new design and some new features but this is not Sense 7.0 so don’t expect to be getting those features just yet(if at all). As we are reading through the user reports about this specific update, some people aren’t too happy with it. More than one person has said their Dual SIM HTC One M7 is overheating now and the battery is draining very quickly too. We would think that both of these symptoms are the result of the same issue(possibly the clock speeds being ramped too high or stuck at a high-speed). HTC is recommending anyone experiencing these issues to perform a factory reset to see if that resolves it.

Do we have any readers who own the Dual SIM variant of the HTC One M7? If so, have you received this OTA update to Lollipop yet? We are curious to find out if any of our readers are experiencing the same issues that others within the Android community have reported so far.
