Re: Simple, but important questions - thinking about switching to HTC One

For $4 you can recover the screen space that is lost to BlinkFeed and have as many screens as you want. Buy Nova Launcher Prime. (You could probably do it with several other launchers, but my favorite is Nova.)

Re: Simple, but important questions - thinking about switching to HTC One

i thought about that but im already getting used to how this is set up..one and only hope will be that they give us the option to either disable it or remove it from there in an update...

Re: Simple, but important questions - thinking about switching to HTC One

It's more likely that a developer will come up with some way to get around BlinkFeed, but if there's enough complaining about it, maybe HTC will bow to the demand eventually. I was wondering about something related -- could some good hacker find a way to carve out the code for BlinkFeed and make it into an independent app, so if anybody using a launcher like Nova was inclined to use BlinkFeed from time to time could do it by calling up the app? I was willing to play with Sense for a couple of days to get acquainted with it and found it fairly acceptable -- except for BlinkFeed. That's when I decided to go back to Nova, which I had used on my previous phone. Now that I think about it, HTC wouldn't look with any favor at all on my suggestion, but what's to stop some clever hacker from doing it anyway?

odds are youre right..as much as i hate to admit it i dont see them moving to quickly with this one..personally i want to see how much of a change up it has on the battery between running and removing it

Though I wouldn't put it past HTC to put out an update if they get allot of heat on it. I just wouldn't hold my breath on waiting for it.

Re: Simple, but important questions - thinking about switching to HTC One

So does the ONE have the Scrolling Background or is it the Carousel Background?

Yeah, we had the scrolling background for about 2 updates before they went to the Carousel background. I too want the Scrolling background back.
