It would have made sense 25 years ago back at the Win3.1 era to simplify the graphics, for the poor graphics engines of the time. In 2018, it is just a sick mind without the least understanding of how our vision works, that thought up this ugly flat hell.

That's how Favorites already look like on my Galaxy S5 (Marshmallow). Circles on a white background, 3x3 grid, except that my tabs are on top.
Oh, how I love it when a square profile picture is displayed in a circle.
