Hey guys ..

I'm coming from Sense 4.1 so I have no idea how things evolved through Sense 4+, Sense 5, Sense 5.5, and finally landing to Sense 6. However, I'm missing MANY 4x4 widgets (mail, messages, Tasks, Notes (though the app is absent either), etc.). May anybody tell me where are these widgets?

I'm also missing weather clock full screen animation ... I'm confused!

Thanks!

sense has become much leaner over the iterations, many of those things are just gone now.

you can replace some things with 3rd party apps...

That's a bummer ... I pay HTC for premium build and the mighty sense UI ...

Thank you anyway

Guys! @adiliyo and @ahmedsalahais
Since you brought this!
Does sense 6 still have many modes for locksreen like before? (album photo, Facebook updates, stock, etc...)
If not, does it still at least display all notifications on locksreen (like it did in notifications locksreen type in old sense) or only missed call and message?
Thx!

no, those modes aren't there in the same way as the original sense. much of it has to do with the way lock screens are handled in 4.x you can add lock screen widgets to show many of those things, and in a way it's better this way as you can have multiple lock screens by just swiping to the left and right

Yes but I've read somewhere in here that you cannot delete stock locksreen widget! Instead you can only swipe left of right to get to widgets you've added!
Is this true?

One more thing, if pattern locksreen is assigned, can you still see the missed notifications or you are directly presented to the dots pattern instead when you turn the screen on?

Thx!

I haven't been able to remove the stock screen, but supposedly some people have, which is odd. I'm not sure how the sequence is with a pattern or pin lock as I don't use them...
