I just accepted the update to Android 11 and One UI 3.0 on my Samsung Galaxy S10 a couple of days ago.
Most changes I see are positive but the one I absolutely HATE is the change from 4x4 grid to 3x4 grid in folders. I have seen a posting on the UI Beta programme with 23 pages of complaints, but as it's in the 'Suggestions' section I doubt if any developer has seen it - there are certainly no useful replies, only more and more annoyed users complaining. So I am raising this here as a direct complaint against the production version of this software.
Why was it changed? did anyone complain that they had too many icons in a folder?? now my most used groups of apps like Google apps and Travel apps spread over 2 screens instead of one.
This same update *increased* the number of icons I can have on a home screen by allowing a 5x6 grid, so why on earth was the grid size on folders *reduced* and with no option to choose? There's an old adage in software development: "if it ain't broke don't fix it" - there was never a problem with 4x4 grid in a folder (unless some people might have wanted more, not fewer icons)
If others agree please add to this post. Samsung developers: please respond and do something about this annoying and unwanted change.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I found the Good Lock app in the Galaxy store, added the Home Up module, and found exactly what I wanted: settings to customize the grid size in folders - and a whole lot else that I don't really need but might try sometime.
I'm still amazed that I have to install a 3rd-party app to fix what should be in the native UI, but at least I have a solution.
