AT&T HTC One (M8) Update Finally Brings Extreme Power Saving Mode

The HTC One (M8) for AT&T is receiving a minor update today to build 1.58.502.1. The update includes Extreme Power Saving Mode, new photo editing features and Duo Camera effects, and fixes a bug that was preventing owners of the device from claiming their free 50GB of Google Drive space.

That’s pretty much it. 

This update has been in the works since the phone was first released for two reasons. First, owners of the AT&T model quickly realized that it was not allowing them to claim their Drive promo space, an issue that HTC confirmed. The phone also lacked HTC’s power saving mode, a mode that is similar to the Galaxy S5’s Ultra Powering Saving Mode, in that it allows you to extend the battery life of your phone for hours by limiting the phones functionality.

To check for the update, head into Settings>AT&T software update>Check for updates.

    The real question is why would an android user need such updates when they can achieve root, unlocked bootloader and s off

      Probably because not everyone is into hacking their devices, and lets face it, professional developers tend to (not always) produce better results than those who either mod their work (half the time not knowing what they are doing), or use an AOSP template and merely compile it.

    Hate to be the one who says it, but no one cares about this gigantic phone. It can’t be used with how tall it is.

      I love the phone and think the height is perfect for my hand size.
