Android 4.2.2 is reportedly available for the HTC One (click here for more info on HTC One), as owners claim to have received the update. Past rumours claimed that the update would include Sense 5.1, but it seems it only brings a few changes to Sense 5.0.

Changes to Sense 5.0 have been detailed by Android Revolution HD (click here for the original story). The site says, “There were quite a lot of rumours about upcoming HTC Sense and Android 4.2.2 update for HTC One and HTC Butterfly. All were expecting HTC Sense 5.1 to show up, but instead, the version of HTC UI in latest Android 4.2.2 update is still 5.0. However, it does have a lot of important changes. Let me introduce few of them.”

Number one is the “% battery icon.” It says, “Finally! The most popular modification in custom ROMs of all kind. Now you can enable it under Settings ---> Power ---> Show battery level.”

Number two is “Android EQS.” It says, “HTC did a great job by incorporating Android native EQS. You can switch it by tapping on the EQS icon in the upper right corner of the notification menu.”

Number three is “Android Daydream.” All the site had to say was that it is “another Android 4.2.2 feature included in latest HTC update.”

Number four is “long press home button works as menu button.” It says, “It's been very popular modification in HTC One custom ROMs. Now it's by default added to Android 4.2.2 update as well.”

The last is “minor changes in the app drawer and dock.” It says, “Now you can remove all the icons from the dock, which wasn't possible in HTC Sense 5.0 we had in Android 4.1.2. Also, after moving some particular icon to the dock, it won't be gone from the app drawer.”
