It would seem the war on free cloud storage has begun and Google is trying to take the lead passing Dropbox on the inside lane. The popular search giant is now offering, for eligible HTC devices (primarily the One and One Max) the ability to snatch a whopping 25-50 GB’s of space on Google Drive for two years. The 50 GB’s is good for all One Max versions out there however, it’s a little confusing when it comes to the regular One’s offerings.
It’s been noted that when the HTC One upgrades to Sense 5.5 (as we’ve seen yesterday with the international version) both the Drive application and BlinkFeed should notify you and could possibly show an upgrade offering to 40 GBs (15 GB’s default + 25 GB’s of free storage). In addition, it’s being reported that this excludes the developer edition of the One for now nor does it allow you to get the upgrade with an unlocked bootloader. If you’re looking to bank on the offer, it’s good until January 1, 2016 so you should have plenty of time, especially if you’re thinking of upgrading to a new HTC device in the next several months or more.
