Ever since Google announced the commercial release of the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, there are numerous reports making rounds across the tech world suggesting the changes that the update would bring to the existing high-end models. We already saw the preview of Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Samsung flagship devices, now it's time to see how the Lollipop update would be transforming HTC’s flagship smartphone, the One (M8).

Well-known leakster of HTC-related things, @LlabTooFer has posted some screenshots of the HTC One (M8) smartphone running on Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense 6.0 UI.
The predominant changes appear to be in the recent apps switcher that resembles the one on stock Android using a stacked cards style interface that will let users to flip through the recently used apps and Google Chrome tabs. The tabs look flatter reflecting the influence of Material Design. The quick settings menu appears to be grayer with relatively more space between icons.
