Is it possible to change the size of the app-symbols?

Hello,

 

I always loved the Sony UI, but with the Update to 5.0 the symbols are so big! I don´t like that..

Is there any way to change the size of the app-symbols?

 

Thanks for helping Slightly smiling Face

Re: icons

This is the new design from google (material design). You can try to use different launcher but not sure if it will help.

Yes, i tried some, but all in all Sonys is the best. I think I just have to get used to the bigger icons..may take one or two weeks but then I guess I won't care about anymore Face with stuck-out Tongue

Re: icons

I just tried the L Launcher. You can change the icons size and many more. But all in all I like the Sony Launcher more - although I asked for resizing the icons, too Winking Face

Re: icons

You can try reducing the text size to small.. See if that suites you.. It wont reduce icon size unfortunately.
