The HTC One M8, now the former HTC flagship device has been enjoying Android 5.0 Lollipop for a few weeks now. HTC reacted quickly and updated the One M8 alongside other OEMs including Samsung, Google and Motorola.
The Lollipop update for the HTC One M8 brings a long list of changes like better performance, ART runtime system, increased battery life and other extra perks.

Best HTC One M8 Sense 7 Mods
Smaller NavBar Mod
The HTC One M8 doesn’t have hardware buttons. It has a software on-screen navigation bar. The good thing is that you can easily customize the navigation bar by adding other icons. However, many people agree with the fact that sometimes, the navigation bar can be annoying because it takes a good chunk of the screen. That region could be used for other useful things.
Luckily, Smaller NavBar mod decreases the navigation bar size. For any of the mods listed here, you will not need Xposed framework as they can be flashed in recovery.
Transparent Status Bar
This mod makes the status bar completely transparent while maintaining the same stock system icons.
