Got it today, few gripes right away

I'm coming from the HTC Droid. The first one. I've spent two years with the HTC phone and have become very accustomed to a few things.

These are features which I thought would carry over to any other phone. Very very very useful features to me.

First of all, the clock. There are only two types of clocks? The "circle" widget, which has a clock, weather, and battery life.
The other clock is an analog clock which takes up way too much space I think. Nope, don't like it.

Next issue with the clock, with the HTC, you could tap the clock to get to a number of other items, such as alarms, stopwatch, timer, AND desk clock.
Not with this one. You tap on the clock widget and it will only give you the alarm settings.
I need my timers and stopwatch.

No flashlight! I loved my flashlight.

The non removable Google search bar at the top. It's there on all of your home screens.

The lack of a dedicated Menu button for any app you might have open. It'll hide itself depending on which app your using on this phone. You gotta look for it.

The calendar isn't very customizable either.

I really did like HTC's Sense UI. It just made more, well... sense. Maybe I'm just being overly picky, but these are things that I thought were just very convenient and easy to use. I'll give it another week or so.

So ends my two cents for now.
