How to change icons size? - lollipop update

Hi,

 

I've got problem after my lollipop update (I've updated my mobile yesterday), the icons are very big the same as before lollipop update. Is there any possibility to change the size? I've been searchin in the Internet and in my mobile settings, but I cannot find it. Any idea?

Or should I stay with my Nova Launcher forever? Slightly frowning Face

 

My mobile: Xperia Z 2, D6503,

Android ver: 5.0.2

compilation nr: 23.1.A.0.740

 

Thanks in advance! Slightly smiling Face

Hi,

By default, you cannot change the size of the icons. You need to use another launcher if you want to customize the size of them.

So, someone made a change, and didn't make it optional... how hard would it be to scale icons... now I have these big ugly icons on my phone...  There is not even a point to having a wallpaper their so big and obnoxious... This is not helping me convince my wife to keep her Z2...

This is something that we have forwarded as feedback, but unfortunately I do not have any info if there will be changes for this the future.

 

But in my opinion, one great thing about Android is that you can download third party apps to customize your phone even further. In this case, another launcher.

So there is the solution, look for a third party app, launcher or better yet side load, just because Google and Sony had no care or forethought. Large icons makes the Z1 look like a cheap kids toy!

Also, there are issues in the contacts menu where information like "Organization" no longer appears as it once did prior to the 5.0 Lollipop update. Sony needs to perform some serious research and listen to the consumers that own product.

New update 14.5.A.0.270 brings huge icon size, want to downgrade launcher please suggest how?

Sony recently gave an update on the Xperia Z Ultra which brought a new launcher as well, which unfortunately introduced extremely huge icons.

Is there any way to reduce the icon size or downgrade the verion of the launcher as I would like to stick to the Sony Xperia Home Launcher.

 

Kindly advise.
