    I got the 4.4.3 update on my U. K unlocked M8 today. The phone is noticeably faster and stable. Still exploring though.

    Great news, I also have an unlocked UK M8 bought from Carphone Warehouse, but I'm stuck on 4.4.2. When did you get the update and have you noticed any other improvements?

    Yeah it feels a bit snappier and smoother and all round more stable. It was already those things for the most part. The file manager is basic but very welcome. I'm noticing some improvement with battery as well actually.

    Yeah the file manager is about the only new app that I appreciate, all the other HTC stuff, i've uninstalled. It does feel a bit smoother, but as you said it was already like this. Anything else you notice different about it?

    Got my update just after mid day too. Been waiting ages and checking nearly hourly!

    Can't say I've noticed a difference, but crashing when trying to open the gallery/video has stopped (so far).

    To be honest, the only thing I care about is the file manager! FINALLY!

    Edit: I've found a really annoying feature, in that when I'm using the stock browser (might happen with others too) the back/home/recent buttons hide themselves! Until you swipe up from the bottom or scroll the Web page down a little. I know it's to maximise screen space but it's annoying! I want full time dedicated buttons! I already hate the way they move in landscape mode compared to portrait.

    I've also noticed that Hangouts and swiftkey now longer have lag, before 4.4.3 I found a tiny lag in opening Hangouts and Swiftkey, but not anymore

    You're right. SwiftKey is smoother now. Feels like it has been specially optimized for Sense 6....HTC has done a good job with the M8

    I've honestly not noticed any issues, there are small improvements, which imo it didnt need. Swiftkey and Hangouts are much more fluent I feel. There is a new Task Manager and a few other HTC apps - which can be un-installed or disabled. all in all its a good update

    I downloaded the update (was auto-prompted too) however when I try to actually use it it restarts my phone and puts me into CWM. If I then try to run the update the phone says it cannot find /system/build.prop, which is obviously strange.

    Nevermind, I figured it out. You need to go back to Stock Recovery to make it update properly. Working just fine now.

    Got the update, so far (~24h) no bugs.
    *BoomSound Max Volume lowered by ~20%
    *New File Manager app that can move files from internal storage to external SD/ USB stick (other apps still does not have permission to move files around)
    * GPS on/off toggle icon changed.
    *New app- Power to Give (no idea what that is.
    *New app: Google Photos (me thinks it's called picasa)
    *SwiftKey- no more lags/ smoother
    *WiFi - larger reach.

    That's all I noticed so far.

    I've always had the Google Photo's app and yeah its Google's storage facility for its photos powered by Picasa.

    nice point about the wifi though, I havent tried the wifi in my house yet. I usually just use my data so i'll give it a bash tonight

    the power to give app is an interesting one, I would give it a go
