HTC is a great company which creates great smartphones and great pieces of software. Everyone is waiting for the upcoming HTC One M9 (Hima) which is going to be a huge improvement over the One M8. The most important change is going to be the camera as HTC will be going away from the UltraPixel term and will include a high-resolution sensor.
HTC devices come all with the custom Sense UI and skin. It has been praised by many as the best Android skin and launcher after stock Android. It has plenty of features and is nowhere as bloated as other custom skins, lets say Touchwiz. And on top of that, the UI is simple and clean.
Android 5.0 Lollipop introduces redesigned Sense 6.0 which will be present on the upcoming flagship device. A good thing about HTC is that it uploads and shares its system applications on the Play Store.
HTC has uploaded a handful of applications on the Play Store such as Camera, Weather, File Manager, Lock Screen, Clock, Gallery and recently, the web browser, HTC Internet.
HTC is one of the few manufacturers that does this. Even though it publishes all the system apps on the Play Store, this doesn’t mean that you can download and install them on your non-HTC phone.
Apps are available only for HTC devices and if you have another brand and try to download the app using the download link, it will say that your phone is not supported.

The only reason why HTC does this is so its users can be up to date with app versions. Every time a new software update gets released, users have to wait for weeks if not months to install the new version of Android. The update also includes updated versions of system apps. So users can update the apps using Play Store without having to wait for the official update.

The HTC Internet app is one of the best browsers for Android and it is a shame that is not available for all devices. Still, if you are lucky to have an HTC phone, you can download the latest APK version of the app above.
HTC has just started updating its flagship devices to Android 5.0 Lollipop and the HTC One M8 is the first phone. Older devices will be receiving it later on.
