    Default Verizon HTC One: 4.4.2 KitKat Update

    Just downloaded and installed (had to do a "Check New" )...anyone else installed and noticed anything worth pointing out. I was most excited to be able to turn off BlinkFeed.

    WiFi icon is different
    4g LTE stays on with WiFi connected
    Battery icon is all white now
    Locations in settings has better options

    I must say, I'm not a fan of the white battery icon...I liked that little bit of color but oh well. Seems a bit snappier but that may just be in my head, plus this phone was snappy before.

    I was used to the blue icons of my rmhd that the white is taking forever to get used to. But yes very snappy phone.

    i think the white battery icon was introduced with 4.4.2


    those of us running 4.4 still have it green.

    Does this include the Tap to Pay feature Google introduced in 4.4, or has it been stripped out?

    yes, pinch to zoom and delete that page, drag the weather clock widget to the 3rd page and make that one your home page, move that page to the left and boom you have it back. then readjust all your apps, a pain but there ya go

    Just started my KitKat down load on the Verizon HTC One a few minutes ago. Will play with it when it finishes installing.

    Maybe I am not asking this in the right area...Can anyone help me with this issue. All my friends have iphones..

    I have a HTC One through Sprint. We have all downloaded the Emoji Keyboard to have symbols when texting. Everything works fine on their phones. My phone only views the symbols in Black & White both with incoming and outgoing. All color with iphones. Driving me crazy...

    I would message the developer of whatever keyboard you're using.

    Just updated to 4.4 on my Verizon HTC One. Everything is working fine EXCEPT where did the lock screen settings go? They completely disappeared in 4.4! There's no way to change lock screen wallpaper or pick lock screen style. And even though it lets you pick lock screen widgets, it only lists stock widgets..nothing from play store. Ugh. Bring back lock screen settings please!

    yeeess no more lock screen styles.


    you can enable what notifications you get in your lock screen through the phone's security settings.

    and its not completely true you cannot pick play store widgets. *some* are available, though obviously none you have. not sure why the system discriminates some and not others though.

    The dialer application is different now. Probably to be monitored easily. lol and I'm a rep.

    I had to do the "check new" too. Yeah the all white I think is going to take some getting used to, I liked the green. I'll have to look again to see it they are smaller or seem smaller cause of the uniform color, however even if they are smaller they take up a bit more room just because 4G never goes away now. I haven't noticed any improvement in speed, but I've never been a speed freak when it comes to these devices. They're always fast enough for me. The other things I've noticed are there are at least 6 if not 7 apps that I can no longer disable in the apps section. I can't find the old app association screen, so now I'm having to wait until situations arise to set defaults. I too was happy to finally be able to say good bye to BF. As for the lost screen I'm only using one now so no big deal.

    I don't like the gallery. The full width previews are not attractive to me and I can't put my finger on it but I'm just really not liking it. I miss my gallery preview on the lock screen, but I do use a security lock so I like the bypass lock screen option since I have not pics to look at. For those who liked the widget lock screen it's still there just swipe from right to left when on the lock screen for it now. I've thought about putting something there since it can't be turned off, but not sure what yet.?

    I know they said that Flash was going to be pushed completely out in 4.4 but so far I've only visited one site that wouldn't play a video. It didn't say flash was required it just said plugin not supported. Otherwise it's kind of a plainer version of 4.3 with a few different transition animations. Maybe that gives it more of a vanilla feel since so many don't like Sense.

    After some usage...
    - I'm getting used to the all white icons...I do miss the green splash of color though (and Beats is even white)
    - Love the new Recent Apps screen...feels and looks so much better.
    - Phone feels a bit snappier...could be all in my head.

    Anyone else noticing anything worth mentioning?
