Kit Kat Lands on Verizon HTC Ones

Hot off the heels of Sprints Kit Kat update on its HTC One variant, Verizon, surprisingly is 2nd to push out the Android 4.4.2 update among US carriers. If anyone recalls, Verizon was the last to push out the last Jelly Bean update (4.3) to it’s HTC One by about a month after the other 3 major US carriers. HTC itself said late last year that it will deliver Kit Kat to carrier One variants at the end of January, but with certification process taking a bit more time than they had anticipated, they retracted the end of January delivery date, and pushed it to sometime in February.

Sprint released their updates last week, and now Verizon is following suit some days later (about a week if not less). A tweet from @moversi of HTC announcing that they had received technical approval, and @VZWnews tweeting that it will start OTA in stages. I read this kinda late, and I am still downloading the update as I type this. But anyway, Verizon One customers rejoice! Hit that update button and get some sweet Kit Kat lovin’

Kit Kat!

Kit Kat!

HTC One – Month later

So it’s been a month since I’ve bought my HTC One, and it still brings me joy to use as it did on the first day.  The screen still looks incredibly clear.  Watching videos is still very much joyous. Switching back and forth between my old Galaxy Nexus and the HTC One, the difference is quite drastic.  It just pops more on the One. The Boom speakers still amazes me when I use it.  I’ve gotten a lot of positive comments on how the sound….sounds great, and as well as the screen. (more…)

HTC One – Verizon Edition

ONE phone to rule them all, OK, not really, but it sure can make an argument for it.

The following are just my thoughts on this phone, it is not a full technical review highlighting it’s feature set.  It’s just an overview of my personal experience on my new toy. Phonescoop, Engadget, etc., has full reviews of the One, so check them out for a full fledged technical look at this device.

As a birthday gift to myself, I recently purchased HTC‘s current flagship smartphone, the One, and as after spending about a week or so with it, I can safely say it is the best smartphone I have owned/used.

Sure that statement can be made every time a new device comes out, but with my last 2 smartphones being lackluster at best, It can’t be claimed all the time.  Let’s take a closer look at why I think HTC’s One is quite the beast that it is. I know a lot has been said about this phone already, as it’s been out since April of this year.  BUT VZW just got around to releasing it.
