Good things that were removed in Sense 5.5
Ok, so I got my 4.3 and Sense 5.5 update and, altough there a re a lot of improvements, I'm more pissed off because of some stuff they removed or... ahem... added...
- Why did they remove the lock screens? I know the lock screen widgets are accessible through a right to left swipe in the lock screen, but why remove them altogether? For example, I just want to be able to have a different wallpaper for my lock screen than my home screen...
- Why did they remove the old video highlights themes?I very much welcome the added new settings and permissions for the highlights... Honestly, they're a very big deal. But, for the love of God, why remove the old themes? My favorite (and judging from what I've seen on the internet - youtube, Facebook or HTC Share - "Islandia" is gone... Why?
- Why is the NFC logo pinned in the status bar? Why do I have to see that? I have NFC turned on all the time... :
These are the few things that got me upset about the new Sense 5.5 update. I know that the update has a lot of good new features (and I welcome them all)... But why remove other good features that have been on Sense since I can remember?
Are there other features that have been removed/altered in a bad way?
And an UPDATE: I know that they've added a s*it load of new emoticons in the stock SMS app, BUT they made it so that the we cannot see the old ones.
For example, when someone sends me an SMS with an emoticon from HTC One X with Sense 5.0, I just see it as text and they cannot see the new emoticons that I send them... Great thinking HTC
