The HTC One is a feature rich device that gets a lot right from the start
Industrial Design: Metal Unibody, light & slim profile which really feels like the premium product that it is.
Dual front facing Boomsound speakers with Beats Audio really was a revelation to me. It makes listening to music direct from the phone a joy; its clear and isn't lacking in power which was totally unexpected when I first heard it.So much for thinking it was just a marketing gimmick!
Blinkfeed is a good new & Social media aggregator, and the Full HD screen makes watching videos a joy, and reading text a breeze. Using the latest Sense software is a lag-free experience thanks to the Quad-core processor, 2GB Ram and good integration done.
The Ultrapixel camera excels in low light and in the right hands, performs quite well in almost all other situations as well. Yes, it can overexpose if you're not careful, but that can be worked around with proper click to focus use, which also adjusts the exposure accordingly. But more importantly, is HTC Zoe & Video Highlights. Would you miss the resolution in some cases, perhaps. But this camera is more than capable of meeting 90 of a typical users' needs.
One feature that isn't too talked about is the optical stabilisation which benefits both photo taking & video. The ability to shoot at 60 FPS, slow motion mode, and also Full HDR video which would be interesting for those who're so creatively inclined.
The IR-blaster was something else that I wasn't sure about at first. Gimmicky? in some ways, yes, but with Sense TV, you do have a Smart Remote with TV guide in your phone now. Found it useful at home and in public areas when testing its usage and range (decent line-of-sight range on it!)
So if you're looking for the best Android device out there, you can hardly go wrong with the superb HTC One!

I know that feeling, the eagernest to receive the update. have you done any modification to your phone? like rooting or changing diff roms?
Fantastic phone, had for 2 weeks, its been amazing, better than the s4, it is faster even though it has a lower clock speed, it just is snappier, blinkfeed isnt useless, i find myself using it when i'm bored, the only problem is that you can only have 4 home screens and the it overheats, it gets to 42 degress c! an improvement would be making the dock transparent. The 4 megapixel camera is great but only badly notice-able when you zoom in other than the slight quality issue colours are great and low light performance is amazing! this phone gets an 8.75/10!
This new update really good battery life become better after 15 hours still got 65% (moderate use) plus charging just 2 half hour this is good...thanks you Htc for bug fixes I crying when you did that. Thanks from Malaysia.

And also let me ask where you at now? Maybe one of the comment here is right, they release the update region by region.
If you will not receive the update within this week, better go to the nearest htc service provider. They offer free update if you are under warranty.

Jack in as much as I want to help you in updating your phone, I still dont have idea on how to manually update htc phone. It is diff. for samsung system even they use the same os. Sammy is easier to modify.
Let me just clarify if you are using a prepaid or postpaid unit?
after using htc one i can definitely say , its one to rule them all
