If you are rocking the HTC One M8 and live in Europe you can now take the wrappers off Android 4.4.3 and download the software now. HTC has already rolled out 4.3.3 to its Google Play Edition and US versions of the M8 flagship, so users in European markets will be happy to see the OS arrive.The 4.4.3 patch of Google's Android KitKat is a sizeable package of enhancements, additions, and of course bug fixes. The file weighs in at 613MB and contains version 2.22.401.4 so you will probably need to have a solid connection or Wi-Fi to get the patch quickly. M8 owners in Europe can expect performance optimization for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and the Mobile Network, while the Camera, Gallery, Settings, and HTC Sync Manager apps have all been updated. Aside from that, Google's own 4.4.3 optimizations and bug fixes are in tow, while HTC has made some improvements to its Sense UI. Optimizations for the Taiwanese company's software include for BoomSound, Extreme Power Saving Mode, Quick Setting, and Motion Mode. We fully expect that after this initial 4.4.3 roll out that HTC will send out Android version 4.4.4 fairly quickly. After-all the newest Android OS is merely a small update to fix issues with 4.4.3 so we assume it is all but guaranteed at some point. Until then you can get your hands on 4.4.3 for the One M8 in Europe and should be able to pull it over the air now, but if not you may have to wait for your particular carrier to roll out the patch. source: Android Guys
