the international Sense 5.5 (and Android 4.3) update that readers have already started receiving in Europe. These expansions are in addition to the complimentary 15GB of Drive space available to all Google users, bringing the allotted storage totals to 65GB and 40GB for the One Max and One, respectively. There are a few caveats, though. According to Mountain View, the HTC One Developer Edition isn't eligible for this due to its unlocked bootloader.
This bonus storage will be good for two years, which is conveniently the entire length of a full upgrade cycle on most US carriers. However, there are a few caveats to keep in mind:
- The bonus storage can only be redeemed once per account and per device, so don’t even think about redeeming this offer using multiple phones.
- The Developer Edition HTC One is not included – that’s because you cannot redeem the offer on a device with an unlocked bootloader.
- The storage has to be redeemed by January 1, 2016 – so in case you’ve got other bonus storage (from a Chromebook, for example) and you want to make your free storage last as long as possible, you might be able to time this just right and redeem it only after your other bonus storage expires.
