    I have only had my samsung galaxy note 4 about a month, and my app icons are turning into black boxes. I have did a factory reset and it's still happening.

    Welcome to Android Central! Is it happening with all app shortcuts on your homescreens, or only some of them? Are these apps "Moved to SD"? If so, then it might be a problem with the SD card. If the portion of the app that is moved to SD can no longer be accessed, the app may not work properly, and the shortcut may look like that.

    im having the same issue. Its started when i downloaded an emoji keyboard. I think i added a them to that keyboard and then didnt like the keyboard so removed the app for the keyboard. At this time i noticed the old keyboard had black boxes. Basically all symbols look like a black box. The weird thing is now i notice the black boxes also in browsers and instagram. Anywhere there is a symbol.
