Android 4.2 update for HTC One removes oft-criticized menu bar, adds many features AndroidCentral has reported on the new Android 4.2 update for the HTC One.
The update just began hitting devices this week across the globe, with the full rollout expected to take three weeks.

HTC appears to have addressed many of the complaints for the device and its HTC Sense overlay, while adding a few new features, as well.

The company has added the Daydream screensaver, quick settings toggles, lock screen widgets, separated the power saver option, made screenshots instantly sharable, added new templates to the Highlights video app, and integrated the popular Instagram into their own BlinkFeed. You can also swipe up from the home screen to access Google Now, just like in stock Android.

Finally, the company has killed off the black menu bar that would show up in certain applications.
