Owners of the HTC One (more information on the smartphone here) are claiming that Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) has been pushed out for their handset. However, the Sense 5.1 UI is not on board (related news here). Instead, there have been a few changes made to the Sense 5.0 UI.
Android Revolution HD (website here) has reported on the changes made to Sense 5.0 on the HTC One. It says, “There were quite a lot of rumours about upcoming HTC Sense and Android 4.2.2 update for HTC One and HTC Butterfly. All were expecting HTC Sense 5.1 to show up, but instead, the version of HTC UI in latest Android 4.2.2 update is still 5.0. However, it does have a lot of important changes. Let me introduce few of them.”
First of all there’s the “% battery icon,” which can be enabled by going to ‘Settings,’ then ‘Power,’ and then choose ‘Show battery level.’
Secondly, there’s the “Android EQS,” with the site saying, “HTC did a great job by incorporating Android native EQS. You can switch it by tapping on the EQS icon in the upper right corner of the notification menu.”
Third is “Android Daydream,” which is “another Android 4.2.2 feature included in latest HTC update.”
Fourth is “long press home button works as menu button,” with the site saying, “It’s been very popular modification in HTC One custom ROMs. Now it’s by default added to Android 4.2.2 update as well.”
Fifth is “minor changes in the app drawer and dock,” with the site saying, “Now you can remove all the icons from the dock, which wasn’t possible in HTC Sense 5.0 we had in Android 4.1.2. Also, after moving some particular icon to the dock, it won’t be gone from the app drawer.”
