    Why does my standard calculator look magnified, with ony basic functions?
    The 10 digits are cut off at the edges, weird, and a zoom out option is unavailable.
    There are no other options apart from simple arithmetic, +-x/.
    Doesn't seem right!?

    Same here... didnt think about that till now :-\ shows how much I use it lol

    After a quick google it seems its a standard ICS thing... Might be worth finding a free one on the playstore....

    It's the way HTC styled it for sense. I don't believe it affects all ics phones, just HTC ones

    We have had the same discussion for various other Sense based devices. The new calculator style started after Sense 3.something and has continued with Sense 4.0 and Ice Cream Sandwich.

    The Sense calculator widgets do not have quite this same style numbers, so if you can spare a homescreen it might be a worthy work around.

    Quick Tip: if you turn the phone landscape within the calculator application you will gain a few meager higher arithmetic functions; Sin, Cos, Tan, Pi, etc.
