Let's keep the OP short. As it is, there is no way for users from different ROMS to discuss their problems, experiences or questions regarding the Sense 5 update. I believe this is all due to previous threads being closed due to illiterate users asking about their CIDs and why they haven't received the update. Look, we don't know and to be honest, unless you can't wait or be patient or bother to read OPs properly (I'm talking about the CID confirmation thread), we couldn't care less about your problem. Since this is my thread, I will have 0 tolerance towards such acts and rest assured this thread will be closed if even one of these rules are broken :

Do's

Share your experience with the ROM

Compare battery life or day to day usage

Ask questions regarding bugs or etc

Share mods, tweaks and patches to help enhance Sense 5 for everyone

Discuss opinions based on the ROM compared to previous updates


Don't's

Ask when you'll receive the update

Ask why you haven't received the update

Condemn HTC for taking too long

Bring up issues regarding HTC's update schedule

Confirm if you've received or haven't received the update on your CID or carrier

Ask about the future of the One X (Sense Billion or Android 9.0.5)

Asking how to install Sense 5

Asking how to update hboot


If you can abide by these rules, please feel free to join this thread. If you think you're prone to breaking any rules, don't post at all.

Enjoy your stay and lets keep this as civil as how the guys at the N7 forums managed to do with their 4.3 discussions thread.

I haven't experienced any lag on the actions you described (or on any part of the rom) It actually feels more fluid than sense 4.

I haven't found out where I can enable blinkfeed yet, so I didn't test that one.

Browser keeps asking about login to Google account and I find it annoying. Is there a way to disable it ?

I'll get the ball rolling. Anyone else noticed some parts of the ROM lagged on stock kernel ? For me, they were the quick settings flipping sideways, swiping between BlinkFeed and the homescreen, occasionally in the app drawer and changing music using the next button).

I definitely have experienced the brief lag in the quick settings panel, and also swipping homescreens. I find having a dark wallpaper reduces the lag.

I'm also having trouble getting facebook to link with BlinkFeed.

My experience so far:
- after first recharge: I reached 10% battery after 1 day and 23 h (almost 2 days!). 2 h of screen on, WiFi all time, gsm only, no 3g. Browsing, whatsapp, fb, no music or games. Excellent night-time standby. I keep BlinkFeed deactivated same for google now (for me google now was a nightmare in terms of standby consumption).
Overall i'm satisfied how sense 5 and 4.2.2. are working and moving, no errors or glitches.
Not so happy with the modern/minimalist look of Sense 5. But probably...due to change. It's not bad..but..something rather new. But I REALLY HATE the way they changed weather widget.
WiFi working fine, not so good like it was in ICS, but not bad, either.
Ps: I have a 2100 mAh battery, so stats could be worse for standard 1800 nAh battery.

I have two observations:
The battery drain is high when the screen is on. My HOX is quite warm during usage.
I could not connect to my wifi router while the SSID was hidden. I had to configure it visible.

I think that this update is very buggy,
first of all when I restart my phone some applications are always missing on my homescreens and I have to add them manualy again and the next time I restart my phone it's the same thing again. Another issue is when I am talking on the phone and I hold it away from my face the display is working which is OK but when I rotate it to a landscape position the screen turns it self off like the proximity sensor is detecting something and there really is not anything near it. The lock screen is very laggy and it skips frames all the time(like I'm using some phone from $19) where as when I was using Sense 4+ with the weather animation I never experienced any kind of lag on the lock screen. Anyway there are some other bugs too but for me these are the biggest problem which require an update from HTC and maybe with the first bug they never should have released this update. Thanks

I am completely stock and haven't noticed any lags at all. Zero. Battery life increased a lot, especially stand by times. Whoever notice anything wrong with this update should try to do factory reset.

Just putting my 2 pence in.

Sense 5 is the first ROM that took me away from CM10 - Sense 4.X was dreadful. Slow, bloated, and those bottom tabs were SO bad - worst design choice ever.

Sense 5, though is fast, pretty and just. Nice. Feels like a new phone.

    Then it seems it has been removed.
    There are MANY post-processing apps available however.

    After digging around I found out it was not removed. I found this info in the HTC One manual:
    1. Open the Gallery app.
    2. Browse to the photo that you want to edit.
    3. Tap the photo, and then tap Edit.
    4. Tap Effects.
    5. Press and hold the effect you want to customize and drag it to Custom.
      Note: You can also press and hold an effect and then drag it to a new location.

    On the Custom Effects screen you can:
    • Make changes to the effect by adjusting filters such as exposure, saturation, white balance, and more.
    • Use the slider bars on selected filters to adjust the intensity of the effect.
    • Rearrange filters to modify the effect. Press and hold the filter you want to move. Then drag it to a new position.
    • Remove filters. Press and hold the filter you want to remove. Then drag it to Remove.
    • Tap + to add more filters and create a more complex effect.
    • Tap Done to apply the effects to your photo.

    You can find this info on HTC support site. I can't post URLs yet...

    I can understand slimming down the UI, to a point, since this UI is also the thing makes HTC HTC.
    I do agree that most users are now social media oriented and UIs are going towards that direction.
    But these are still freakin smart phones. HTC is still the brand that produced PDAs, Windows Mobile phones. these are not just "teenage" toys.
    How come you can remove agenda from a smartphone?
    I was about the upgrade it 15mins ago and luckily came here to check it out a little. I am really really very angry right now with this particular loss.
    Of course HTC is not my own company to design phones for me but, I don't believe that we're a small percentage who are frusturated with this loss.

    Please be hidden or locked somewhere, please..

    It's not gone, it was replaced with the stock Android calender widget

    Uhmmm...
    Open Messages -> Settings -> Notifications -> Notification sound
    Open Mail -> Settings -> Notification settings -> Notification sound


    Works fine here :)

    Thanks for that. I didn't know that. Before you can see it all in the settings so i thought it is removed.

    I have the same problem, but maybe it's because i have mostly "oldies" in my library. Can you suggest a song that you know for sure that it has lyrics? I would like to try it out.

    Thanks

    At first I have that problem but I've read the solution in a different thread. The lyrics will only work in certain countries like the US. Most probably you're not in the US just like me so the workaround is install a VPN app so it will detect the you're from US and after which, the lyrics will appear. You only need to use the VPN app once. After that, the lyrics will always work even without the use of the VPN app.

    I think that HTC is reading this blog and they probably are aware of all the bugs that we report here
