It's messed up that that happened, and the same thing happened to my ZTE.
The company may have made decision for some reason. If u dont want to buy the phone then dont buy it because there is no loss to company, because consumers will be left using the devices of one of the great mobile handsets company in the world.

1) For the majority of software it doesn't matter. In fact Lolipop breaks quite some apps.
2) a 64-bit OS on devices with less than 4GB is stupid. So why bother on these 1GB RAM devices with Lolipop anyway?
3) What particular feature does Lolipop offer that isn't already included on Sense or Touchwiz anyway?
Trust me I'll keep using Kitkat on my S5 too because that runs best on the S5 and it runs all the apps without problems.
It's clear that HTC is going straight toward a painful, cold death.
What's the big deal? just update it yourself (unofficial of course) just take a few minutes and learn how to do it yourself and your good to go without any need to depend on the manufacturer/carriers to update your device.
HTC get lost. 30000 you pay and not got lollipop. Even God will not save you. No word s suit you for hate
After changing to the new CEO, the firmware support from worse to worst!
For sure my next phone would not be HTC!

Faux-premium I say.

This I understand. But there's no excuse for not updating the One Mini 2 - a so-called "flagship" device launched in 2014. Congratulations HTC, you just converted legions of customers into people who will never trust you again. You bang your heads against the wall wondering why you can't increase market share. THIS is why.
Wish I could say it's been nice knowing you.

m7 was released as a premium class device. it had descent hardware, way way better that the Low end Samsung devices that still receive lollipop update.
