Answers to some common questions
Why does my phone get warm?
Your phone may get warm while you're using it for a long time in phone calls, web browsing, navigation or charging etc. This is normal for modern electronics. If performing many of these tasks simultaneously you may notice the temperature rise at a quicker rate. If the operating temperature of your phone makes you feel uncomfortable, please turn it off and wait for it to cool down. Your phone should never be hot enough that you can not safely handle it.
The HTC Sense 5 interface is radically different. Are you moving away from Android?
HTC always takes the best of Android and fills in the gap of experience where we can do a better job. For instance, our Gallery experience is superior to the default Android experience because our Gallery aggregates all your friends’ photos from Facebook, Flickr, and Picasa so you’re instantly up to speed with the photos your friends are sharing. In addition, Video Highlights create professional grade videos with no effort. When in Gallery’s events view, Video Highlights automatically analyzes the content of the event to create a stunning video. Furthermore, HTC Share is an effortless way to share a series of photos with your friends. When this is selected in the Gallery, it automatically creates a collage of photos along with a highlight video that is available on a private website hosted by HTC. Your friends and family will be able to access the visually stunning video and collage across platforms, whether they’re on a phone, a tablet, or a personal computer.
Beyond the Gallery, we have also enhanced the experience on the Home screen, Phone dialer, Music app, and more.
