Default HTC ONE/SENSE 5 - BLINKFEED Auto Rotate

To be fair to HTC, my G2X doesn't auto-rotate either & TBH, I can't remember if my other ANDROIDS (HUAWEI ASCEND/MOTOROLA PHOTON/SGS III) had auto-rotate on desktop mode, as the U/I was awful on all & I immediately loaded an aftermarket launcher on all of them.
HTC got one thing right that some of the others fail:the app drawer button located in the center of the dock. Sounds like a small thing, but, it went a long way in overlooking some of the other 'unique' features of SENSE 5.

Don't get me wrong, this is a great phone, wouldn't trade it for anything else available. Put auto-rotate & more grid options on the desktop/app drawer & you have a solid 10.

As SIKCLOWN mentioned,perhaps some of these features will be available on a SENSE ROM sometime soon. Perhaps sooner, as a leaked version of ANDROID 4.2.2 & SENSE 5.1 has been floating around.
