HTC has begun rolling out Android 4.3 and HTC Sense 5.5 to its flagship One phone and its phablet cousin the One Max, bringing a suite of spiffy new features to the handsets.
Originally scheduled to arrive on European smartphones back in September, Android 4.3 isn’t a massive upgrade over 4.2. But it’s not without its merits, not least among them the fact it adds support for multiple users with security-protected profiles.
The fresh software (fresh-ish, anyway) also enables One and One Max users to pair their handsets with Bluetooth Smart accessories.
And the latest version of HTC’s Sense custom skin isn’t to be sneezed at either. This offers the chance to disable BlinkFeed and revamped, improved Camera, music and Gallery apps.
A new note-taking app dubbed Sribble also makes its debut, as well as the option to save articles to read later when offline and create custom feeds from news media, Twitter and YouTube. Rounding things off is a suite of miscellaneous bug fixes for a smoother smartphone experience.
