    Hi,

    Has anyone experienced an App Drawer bug, wherein when you want to move an App to the desktop it won't work?

    This is what happens to me:
    I will try and drag an App out of the App Drawer onto the desk top, however all that happens is the App will highlight on finger touch, the App Drawer will disappear and immediately appear again and the App will remain in its current position. This is EXTREMELY frustrating. I try refreshing, rebooting, closing all open apps but nothing is working, THEN, it'll just work on like the hundredth time.

    This is really pi**ing me off.

    Anyone else experiencing this phenomena?

    Best regards

    Yea, I've had this issue too. But only when I have a lot of apps on my device. I've found it to work best by doing this very slowly to confirm the drawer knows what you're wanting to do. How many apps do you have? I'm at 623, not including system apps!

    Strange.

    I've not experienced this on my s8.

    I use both methods without glitch.

    Have you tried soft rebooting your phone by turning it Off and On.
