    Thread for hints and tips as we explore this new phone.

    I quickly discovered that the Home screen lacked an App drawer, and icons will clutter the screen. Go to Settings - Home - select home screen then choose "Home and App Drawer"

    Adding the app drawer was the thing I did. Then lowered the DPI.

    Settings> display> mini view

    This lets converts the entire display into a virtual window that you can adjust in size and position. This is meant to help with one handed operations so you don't have to reach as far with your thumb.

    Adding the home touch notification button to your bottom set of buttons also greatly increased ease of one handed use by pulling the notification shade down without having to drag from the top.

    Well, give it some protection and you'll get a much better grip. Unless you just like it bare and slippery.

    I switched to the "Home and App Drawer" and I lost the option to change the size of the grid. am I just missing the option or is it not available?

    Anyone else try that Developer option to "speed up your V20"? I followed the instructions to the letter and found there was a definitive lag time opening up apps. I didn't notice anything had increased in speed, so I put the settings back to where they were and everything was nice and responsive again.

    What did you change the animation speeds to? All of mine are at .5X and the phone is indeed speedy.

    Oh jeez. You know what I did? I overlooked the POINT 5. I chose 5X, why should I be surprised the phone was going so slow. LMAO

    If someone can please let me know what I'm doing wrong with the Double Tap to wake and sleep I'd appreciate it?!

    I did go into Settings, Display and turned on KnockON but the screen is still not sleeping nor waking up ugh.

    I did install a Gravity screen where it sleeps if I lay it down and wakes when I pick my phone up but it'd be nice to wake it up with the Double Tap without picking it up.

    Thank you in advance!

    Did it work before you installed that Gravity app? Double tap is so useful. Especially to lock, versus reaching around to the back of the phone for me.

    Unfortunately it did not. I installed the Gravity app thinking it may be a work around but I still need to pick it up to wake. At least it sleeps when I lay it flat yay !

    I am using Nova as a launcher so maybe that's what's causing it ?

    Dunno ??

    You can have up to 5 apps on the lock screen. Go into settings, lockscreen, shortcuts.

    Double tapping the status bar still works in Nova to put the phone to sleep.
