It can be disabled by installing a third party launcher... it'll always be on the side-screen in the HTC Launcher. But, you'll never come across it unless you sweep to it if you're in that mode.

But then I would lose the HTC widgets... :(

I do miss the ability to turn it into the menu button though. :(

How is the menu button implemented then? Back to that horrible black bottom bar with a single touch button?

Indeed! I think the stock launcher (with blinkfeed) is really good though.

YES! Sadly. :(

Thankfully the majority of apps are updated now, but I really wish I could map it to a button.

Can you use your own music on these Zoes (30 sec compilation vids/pics) or do you have to use the ones provided?

Hey Paul, can the HTC One natively playback 1080p x264 video (high profile 4.1) in either mkv or m2ts containers in the stock video app? How about avi and wmv?
Normally use Archos for its enhanced meta data support, but it's nice to know things work without codecs. My GS3 will play the lot straight out of the box, even at 20mbs+ 1080p bitrates.
Thanks

Not default, no. Capture is very fast.

Be interested to see about battery life after you've used it for a few days. I find the battery life on my GN "okay", but when using it for a period of time (e.g. on a train journey) the battery gets absolutely nailed!

That's true of all phones I think tbh. :)

Paul,
Are you seeing any lag or stuttering in the device anywhere? Also what's your impression on usability of the screen in direct sunlight? Thanks!

Incredibly smooth with no lag or stuttering and the screen is outstanding in direct sunlight - i've just been for a walk to test it. :)

True, especially seeing as data and screen are the biggest battery drains!

Just been to play with a dummy in P4U, really like it - can't see Samsung being able to match it with the S4 - if previous form is anything to go by!
