HTC One (M8) is already available for sale in most of the markets, but it seems one of the features which was missing from the handset was the Extreme Power Saving mode announced during the event on March 25th.
It was promised the feature will make its way to the handset in a software update, and if you’re rocking a Sprint HTC One (M8), you should receive an update in the next few days which will bring this feature to your handset.
The latest update bumps the software version to 1.54.651.8, and introduced a bunch of network-related enhancements, including call and general improvements, along with the Extreme Battery Saving Mode. For those of you who don’t know, the Extreme Battery Saving Mode optimizes the power consumption of your device, and extends its battery life to up to 14 days on a full charge.
HTC mentioned in the press release, “Fully charged it will deliver 14 days’ worth of battery power, whilst still allowing you to receive calls, texts and emails – perfect for when you are travelling. Activated either manually or automatically, it delivers 60 hours of extra standby time at 20% power, 30 hours at 10% power and 15 hours at 5% power so, whether you are out late at night or hiking in the mountains, you never have to worry about running out of battery again.”
You should get the update in the next few days, otherwise, you can manually check for it by going to your Settings app. Let us know if you received the update.
