    This might seem trivial but since day one I've notice what to me seems like a glaring issue: That gap at the top of the screen! You can only put widgets up so far and it seems like there is a half inch of unused space at the top before the notification bar that just looks wrong. OCD much, you ask? Maybe, but still, every time I try to find a nice clock/weather widget to put on the front page that gap just about drives me nuts. Surely, I can't be alone in this?!?

    Change your Home Screen grid setting to 5x6 and it should tighten it up

    Looks like you have specific tastes and little tolerance for compromise: Good. You're on the right operating system. But not the right launcher.

    Download Nova launcher. The paid version is easily the best couple of bucks you'll spend on your phone.

    It'll let you make a set up tailored to your taste. Super high level of control, precision & it's staight forward. You can get your phone so minimal and refined, it makes stock look a joke. Gestures are game-changing too.

    Already a paid user of Nova Prime. Used it with my last Note (3). Might have to go back to it.

    Just went back to Nova. Now I no longer have the gap. Plus I got my gestures back. Freed up a lot of the Edge apps.

    I don't have any gap either. At first I thought this might have to do with setting apps to use full screen mode but your pics show the home screen.

    Actually, I'm in Portsmouth, NH - USA. New England, so gets pretty cool by mid October. But unlike the UK, we generally have very nice weather and a great change of seasons and equal parts of all four. It's truly a beautiful place to live. One of the best in all North America. Unless you hate the cold!
