They should have otherwise increase the icon numbers to 5 at bottom and 5rows x 4 colums (or even 5x5 like GalaxyNote)... Because 3x3 icons in 4.3" or 4.65" will be in JUMBO size and may be good ONLY for old people then...
But still, GoLauncher is there to rescue which is much better than TouchWiz and also FREE and fast too...
My GS2 got this update last week.
dont worry. it`s optional.
you will get a home changer thing after the update.
this is not really related to Apple, i think.
its just for helping old people...
korean phone makers were the first to come out with big font. then everyone copied them including nokia. now its the icon they want to upsize. maybe samsung knows a lot of people have eye problem.
Only for Galaxy SII ? Not for Sprint, AT&T, Epic, T Mobile etc the whole range of Galaxy SII? Sammy!what are you going to do ? Have we owners of Galaxy SII made a mistake by purchasing it?
Large Icons? not a good idea try circles, stars, diamonds, spade etc same size it fits my medium eyes.
My grandma will love now her GS2...she can play without glasses
Microplex, 10 Oct 2011That is going back to Bada 1.0/1.2 OS system ... Maybe that is also why Bada 2.01 OS has ... moreBut not Symbian Belle, it has completely flat menu structure, folders are optional. It's like the old Sense UI, loooong endless scrolling down of grids.
Well, If you ask me.... This is nothing but a stupid update both in terms of screen sharing and the so-called Legal battle. DAMN you, Samsung. We love you... Dont fall to apple, Though i guess you can't resist to do so. Shucks !!!!
Samsung pls add a stylus to the upcoming Galaxy S3 as my finger burns after some time using swipe and is getting calluses
bongbong, 10 Oct 2011Bigger icons on bigger screens are definitely eyecandyYes,eyecandy for old people
3x3 for blinds I guess, if the chance is a 'must have' then it should be 5x5. Anyways I'll keep the existing.
Carphone Guy, 10 Oct 2011LOL owned by apple......Actually, more like they just owned Apple. Apple cant get a ban on them if they make these small modifications. First they changed the bumper animation when scrolling screens, then they change this. None of these changes will stop people from buying the phone (which is what Apple ultimately wants to achieve) and yet the changes will allow them to sidestep Apples legal strikes.
Win win for Samsung.
