T-Mobile HTC One updated to 3.24.531.3, Android 4.3

HTC One T-Mobile OTA update

Earlier today, the HTC One on T-Mobile received an OTA update to 3.24.531.3, which includes Android 4.3. Weighing in 560.18MB, it’s a massive update – so unless you’re on one of T-Mobile unlimited 4G plans, you’ll probably want to download this over WiFi.

The update does include some new features, including new video highlight themes, Instagram support in BlinkFeed, and greater control over the functionality of the home and menu buttons.

According to Pocketables reader Simon Belmont:

The download took about 20 minutes despite my 50Mbps line (the servers are probably being pounded). It took about 10 minutes to verify and install after it downloaded. No errors, it went smoothly.

The update seems very nice. I do notice an extra hint of smoothness (though it was already EXTREMELY smooth on Android 4.1.2). Animations and using the UI just seems to have that extra bit of fluidity and reactivity. The Quick Settings are a huge win and my wife already loves them (she was jealous of them on my G’Nex, so she’s glad to finally have them). I haven’t tested the camera yet, but I have heard there are supposed to be improvements. It does load up fast. I also haven’t tried HTC’s version of a lockscreen widget yet, but it’s limited to one screen right now (multiple in Sense 5.5 update, when we get it). I’ll have to reserve judgment on battery life, but overall, I’m impressed, especially given how fast the update was pushed out.

If you get this update too, be sure to tell us what you think!
