A couple of weeks ago, Taiwanese phone maker HTC has finally responded to the complaints of One M9 owners who were saying that the camera’s 20 megapixel sensor couldn’t handle low light situations and macroshots. That’s a bit frustrating because of our high expectations but at least there’s less noise, more vibrant colors, and more details can be captured. Good thing a software update was released and it did improve photo quality and some photos were even showcased for comparison.
This week, HTC has released Maintenance Release Instructions for the HTC One M9. This particular upgrade is available for the new HTC flagship Android phone from both AT&T and T-Mobile. It is expected to offer enhancements on the camera, BlinkFeed, and the total user experience. This 1.32.502.31 for AT&T and 1.32.531.33 for T-Mobile version is the latest than the one loaded on most HTC One M9’s that have already shipped. If you own one, make sure you upgrade to this version to make the most of the unit.
To check current version, check Home> All apps> Settings> About> and Software information. Any number less than the number mentioned is eligible for the upgrade. Click ‘Continue’ to download the update. Once download is finished, choose ‘OK’ to start installation process.
