HTC Desire 816 (Single-SIM) gets Android 5.0.2 with CM12.2
Last year’s mid-ranger HTC Desire 816 is yet to receive the Android 5.0 update officially. We do not even know that whether this phone will get the update from HTC or not. But unofficial development community is already there to get your device updated to latest Android’s operating system version. Thanks to XDA, an unofficial build of CyanogenMod 12.2 based on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop is now available for the Desire 816.
Lollipop update brings you some features with better stability and a new user interface called material design. It includes new quick setting, lock screen notifications, better security and more. However, being an initial build, it may disturb you with some irritating bugs. The developer does not recommend you to try on dual-SIM version of phone, for now. If you do this, you can experience the force close errors on system user interface.
