    Post 7T or 7 Pro?

    OnePlus 7T I would go with OnePlus 7T, you don't notice the screen resolution difference. The biggest thing is to have 90Hz display, which both phones have. I don't know, the Motorized camera on the pro is worrisome. Even when looking at the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, I would prefer the 7T for the...

    Post [REF][GPE] HTC One M8 Google Play Edition Stock OTA URLs

    It is very possible. HTC most likely submitted 5.0 code to Google for TA and Google probably came back and said we are releasing 5.0.1. HTC will probably release 5.0.1 straight out. If they are working on it this week then I expect them to submit near the end of this week. We can expect OTA...

    Post [REF][GPE] HTC One M8 Google Play Edition Stock OTA URLs

    If Google provides Technical Approval (TA) then there are no more changes after that. That's the whole point. If Google finds issues, then they won't give technical approval. The deadline for approval is today (if no issues found). Mo said that if they get the approval then he will have the...

    Post [REF][GPE] HTC One M8 Google Play Edition Stock OTA URLs

    No If you flash the OTA then you won't lose anything. But it is always recommended to perform a backup of important documents and pictures. We are still waiting for the lollipop update on GPE. Let's hope that we get it soon. ---------- Post added at 01:43 PM ---------- Previous post was...

    Post [REF][GPE] HTC One M8 Google Play Edition Stock OTA URLs

    I agree and that's what moversi is doing now. Although, many thanked him for the updates on twitter, it only takes one to ruin it for everyone. Anyways, it seemed like it wasn't a major bug. They have to fix the SW-spin and resubmit to google. Once google approves, they can send out the OTA...

    Post [REF][GPE] HTC One M8 Google Play Edition Stock OTA URLs

    @moversi is gone I feel like moversi was trying provide updates. They found bugs and couldn't deliver on the expected date, and people freaked out. Now he is not even providing updates. Some people really need to clam down and watch what you say to the guy who is providing updates on the...

    Post [Discussion] HTC One - Updates

    Its not. Read the whole conversation, the person asked about RE update on AT&T. Not the lollipop for GPE. Let's hope its sooner than later. The twitter replies were all for HTC One m8 not m7. So who knows, our m7 might get it today.

    Post [Discussion] HTC One - Updates

    Yeah, I have the GPE One as well. I got the 4.4.4. update OTA just fine. So far, no sign of 5.0 lollipop GPE. Mo Versi said early this week. I'm hoping either today or tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
