Android 4.3 with Sense 5.5 Rolling out to the HTC One

A little over a week ago, Samsung started updating its flagship  Galaxy S 4 to Android 4.3 with the XXUEMJ5 firmware. We all knew that it was only a matter of time before a similar update appeared for HTC’s flagship, the HTC One. Now, that day has come. Android 4.3 is here for the HTC One, and it’s packing a rather significant surprise.

Along for the ride with the Android 4.3 update is the latest version of its custom UI, Sense 5.5 that was first seen on the HTC One Max. This brings multitasking UI improvements, an updated interface to its video highlights feature, improvements to the media player, and more. However, the biggest whammy is how the new update finally lets you disable BlinkFeed.

While BlinkFeed has been one of the most prominent features of HTC’s custom overlay, few users actually used the feature—some going so far as to switch launchers in order to avoid the feature. And now, HTC is allowing users to disable it entirely.

For the admittedly few of you still running stock software on the international model, you can simply wait for the OTA to appear on your device. US carrier variants, however, will have to wait for some time. And if you’re looking for a pre-rooted version, head over to the HTC One forums and find a build that suits your needs.

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
