When will I get Android 5.1 on the HTC One M8?

HTC UK tweeted in response to a customer question and confirmed that the Android 5.1 update for the HTC One M8 will arrive in August alongside Sense 7, but we haven't heard any further news since then. 

HTC One M8 Android 6.0 Marshmallow update

The HTC One M8 Android Marshmallow update is not yet available. Android Marshmallow is expected to launch globally in Q3, 2015. We will let you know when we learn more.

If you have Lollipop up and running on your HTC One M8, what are your thoughts so far?

      We've been strung along since April when we were PROMISED the 5.1.1 update in August! That didn't happen! Now I hear we get Android M + Sense 7 in either December 2015 or January 2016! Not sure I believe a word they say!

    Now htc says that sense 7 mite not come to the That's ok, about to ditch this phone anyways. For a few disappointments. Speakers are great.. But so is the BB passport.

    Like to know plz how long it takes to fix error 38 on the sd card phone memory bug with Google play its been almost 5 months since I reported this problem to HTC and Google play and still no fix so the phone I bought so I could use a sd card for my movies is worthless it's shocking that the only answer is Google play will work on other devices what happens if you dont have a spare device just laying around I know this I'll never buy a HTC phone again I'll stick with iPhone's from now on seems they fix problems In days NOT 5months and still waiting it's a joke
