    Ha, people love Dashclock, thought I'd use that as an example, but you're right, this looks hilarious now.

    Honestly I find those to be the features I would give up, but the lack of IR Blaster Apps on the Play Store is what's making me stick with Sense. Google has stated that they'll offer a solution for the IR blaster enabled phones, once that happens hello AOSP Reply

    ditto. just how touchwiz (Samsung) has those awesome gadgets (especially the calendar and task manager) Reply

    AOSP is overrated. It's not bloated, has nice icons and is generally offers a smoother UI but (and it is a big, throbbing but) many of the standard apps are significantly worse than their OEM replacements - e.g. Camera, Calendar, SMS - and some of the third party extensions are actually useful e.g. battery percentage indicator and Samsung's Smart Stay (keep the screen on while looking at it).

    Personally I prefer a stock-based ROM with a replacement launcher.
  • amdwilliam1985 - Tuesday, July 09, 2013 - link

    Agree, I mostly use Google version's of the apps with some exceptions such as calendar, Samsung's calendar is so much better and their gallery app is good too.
    I'm using Nova launcher so I can get a closer to stock launcher feeling while still getting the benefits of Samsung pull down notification toggle buttons(the best pull down notification system), smart stay, calendar and etc...

    The Sense Calendar Widget on my HTC One with 4.1.2 is much harder to read than the Google Calendar app's (installable from the Play market) Widget.

    Sense 5 is also, imho, a big downgrade from Sense 4 (I had an HTC Evo 4G and an Evo 4G LTE); lots of things are missing, and many widgets are uglier.

    Agree. For the average user. This is a tech site, however, and Android at its core is the tinkerers' OS. And the best apps are not found in either AOSP or some OEM's ROM, but in the market :) Reply

    I was hoping to get 360 panorama shooting with this update as well. Stock 4.2.2 has it, GS4 has it (thanks to samsung's custom implementation). And there's no reason why the One shouldn't. Reply

    All welcome changes and new features.
    I do wish there were more Blinkfeed sources, or the ability to add our own. The current list isn't bad as far as news sources, but I would love to have more.
  • Dug - Tuesday, July 09, 2013 - link

    I agree. I actually use Blinkfeed more than anything else on the phone, even though when I bought it I didn't think I would use it at all. Reply

    Does 4.2.2 allow you to resize widgets on the home panels? Reply
  • Despoiler - Tuesday, July 09, 2013 - link

    You could resize widgets with the original 4.1.2 Android/Sense 5.0 Reply

    Why has it taken so long for OEMS to make battery % in the top notification bar? Apps have been doing it for years, and it was always the first app I downloaded from the play store. (The S4 also has this same feature.) Reply
  • MantasPakenas - Tuesday, July 09, 2013 - link

    An even better question - why has it taken so long for stock Android to still not have one? Given how stupidly obvious the feature is, my best guess would be - patents. Reply

    How do you get rid of the power saver notification? The "Show notification" checkbox is greyed for me. Reply
  • poisonsnak - Wednesday, July 10, 2013 - link

    You can't get rid of it until you get the update. Reply
  • samflorin - Thursday, July 11, 2013 - link

    I got the update. I am on 4.2 with 2.24.401 fw. Reply
  • Pyperkub - Wednesday, July 10, 2013 - link

    Did you test bluetooth? One of the huge problems I've seen with Android 4.2.2 has been the changes that google made to the bluetooth stack, and that the implementations (even in Nexus devices, apparently) have been very sketchy. I use bluetooth for hours every day and can't have a flakey implementation. Reply

    Did you guys notice that the HTC One charges faster after the 4.2.2 update? Reply
  • goemon88 - Thursday, July 11, 2013 - link

    it appears that HTC has enabled quick charge on the One. no more waiting 4 hours for a full charge! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2... Reply

    Does that link really say that? I don't get that from it. Reply

    Has anyone with the 4.2.2 update checked to see if Car Dock mode works? As I recall that was removed from stock 4.2 Reply

    Does this update fix the HTC accessibility services bug? Without a fix, I'm stuck choosing between Tasker and other apps that use the service, or a lock screen that works correctly. I would like to have both and cannot believe how long it's taking for HTC to fix this. Reply

    we still don't have an update here in the US. this sucks! Reply

    I am using the HTC one and i have 4.2.2 running on it, I get a software update notification everyday with the same update ID which is of around 18MB. Not sure why I am asked to install the same again and again. Reply
