    No. It was straight out of the box. Minor problem but makes me wonder about future issues.

    Sure it's not just VZW messing with the software?

    Hey all, I'm new to the community and just got my HTC One. I love it. I really like the Blinkfeed feature, however there's one thing that I can't figure out. On my Facebook news feed I have all of pages that I "Like" unsubscribed, i.e. I don't get their updates spamming my news feed.

    On the Blinkfeed however, all of these pages' updates and posts spam the feed. Is there anyway to prevent this? Or does Blinkfeed not block these posts?

    HI I got my HTC One this morning.
    The one thing that I am missing is what was on my s4, is I could drag my fingers down the screen and see what was turned on
    for example wi-fi, data, and lots of other things.
    I could also turn them on and off from here.
    I am wondering if there is a widget or some way of having this or similar on the Htc One.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, in Android 4.2.2 you can drag 2 fingers down from the notification bar for quick settings.

    As you are in the UK, this (4.2.2) update will be available to you if it isn't installed out of the box. Check in settings and Software Updates.

    Can this version of Sense be customized to add more rows & columns of icons?
    Can the dock be customized to more of fewer icons?
    Are widgets resizable?

    happens from time to time. others have experienced this and its only temporary.

    you can press and hold the power button until the phone shuts down and restarts then see if it starts updating.
    you can switch to cellular or wifi and test each connection.

    search in this thread and you will see its just a temp thing.. :)

    So my weather widget is stuck in current location...

    I searched this and the only thing I could find was how to get my location working properly... I don't want my location I want it to default in the widget to a manually entered location....

    Any ideas?

    Loving the One so far coming from s3 and this is a far superior device!

    Hi, are you referring to the one on the BlinkFeed screen? I don't think you can change the location on that one.

    I've set my next screen as home and put the same widget on but you can set a different location. There were 8 cities on the default list but you can add your own.

    At the moment I've got the widget on all four screens with a different location on each one.

    So theres no way to set it to a static location? That really sucks means the top of ny BlinkFeed is fairly useless....

    Seems like a poor design choice to me!

    Well, I have to say I don't find it an issue. My BlinkFeed stays to the left of my home screen and I view it usually two or three times a day so it doesn't really matter what's at the top. It disappears anyway when I scroll down to view the feeds.

    I'm happy with it anyway.

    Just got the sense 5.5 update (with android 4.3) and the difference is obvious straight away, phone just works better. Camera has definitely had some form of improvement as the photos seem to have a better balance between whites and vivid colour.. they are crystal clear at least when you view them on the phone.. I can see the difference in the pics I've took before and after the update. My battery drain problem has gone now. BlinkFeed has gotten the lions share of the updates, you now swipe to the right to bring up the options.. I have yet to find the part about localised content or the ability to turn it off but it's there somewhere, the way it displays stuff from Twitter and Facebook is improved, looks a lot nicer than just text. Dialler looks a bit different now & you can add widgets to the lock screen. Good update, no issues so far.

  15. I noticed that after the 4.3 update all my news was gone on my blink feed. I went to settings and the only option I can find to show in Blink Feed are my Facebook and Twitter. Before I had tons of news I could add in. Just annoying that all I can now see is those 2 things. Anyone else have this issue or know how to fix it?

    I installed the Google experience launcher today and I'll be playing with it for a few days, but I did notice that blinkfeed it's missing.Does anyone know how to turn it back on ? I actually like it

    Sense widgets only appear in the Sense launcher. They're all part of the same package.

    Hi, I used to be able to change the theme on my HTC with just a few "buttons" and now these themes are no longer available, I think that it might be part of the new sense update but I'm not sure... And before people tell me to change my background that is not what I mean :p

    From what I have read the International version with 4.3 has sense 5.5. Whereas American users with 4.3 still have sense 5. Sense 5.5 will come with 4.4 for American users.

    Do you mean the skins?

    If so then they were deleted in Sense 5 and above.

    Hi, small issue. I recently bought the HTC ONE and updated to 4.3, before I updated I was able to tweet from the blinkfeed screen and search using the pencil icon, however thats gone since the update, the only button left is highlights. Is there anyway to get it back? Thanks :)

    I keep changing it to my hometown but it always goes back to "Current Location"
    It's like that on my weather widgets and my Blinkfeed

    Any fix?

    most likely this just occured for you. this has been discussed across other devices over the years.

    its a temporary issue and should correct itself. give it a day or so.

    just to be on the same page:

    are you rooted?
    what carrier?

    read starting at post #210 in this thread to see the discussion.

    Hi, you can't change the location on the BlinkFeed widget, you can only view other locations. You can change the location on any home screen widget - long press the widget, drag it to 'Edit', top left of screen, and select a location from your list.

    Hi, the search function is still there - if you tap the 'Highlights' button or swipe to the right from any BlinkFeed screen there is a 'Search for content' box top left.

    You should also still be able to tweet from BlinkFeed - I can't remember whether I had to re-enable Twitter after the update to 4.3, if you tap + (next to the search box) after swiping right, go to 'Services and Apps' and check that Twitter is ticked.
